The member states’ Permanent Representatives today endorsed the compromise reached between the Council and the European Parliament in their negotiations on a new financial and governance framework for the European satellite navigation systems (EGNOS and Galileo) for the period covered by the multi-annual financial framework for 2014-2020.

EGOS, the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service, enhances the accuracy of the existing civilian GPS services, with a geographical area centered on Europe and a possible future extension to other regions of the world. It is already operational and available for use with both an open service and a safety-of-life service for aviation.
