SpaceOpal, the Galileo system operator under contract with the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA), has awarded Ineco the extension of its current contract as the company responsible for the operation and maintenance of the European Satellite Navigation Services Centre (GSC) of the Galileo Programme for the next five years. Based in Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid), the GSC provides satellite navigation services to users worldwide. 

This extension ensures the continuity of Ineco’s activities in the project until 2027, a period in which the GSC will incorporate new capabilities such as the provision of the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS), one of Galileo’s main differentiating elements with regard to its competitors.
