GNSS in Asia - support on international Activities

Background & Objectives

The Asian market is very important for every product/service which aims to be successful on the world market. Galileo is no exception. The five Asian economies are of strategic interest for the EU GNSS for the following reasons:

  • They comprise a unique region to be served by several GNSS
  • They are a manufacturing centre for GNSS downstream equipment
  • They are home to chipsets serving mass markets in GNSS
  • They represent markets with high GNSS affinity and enormous growth rates.
