Soyuz STB/Fregat | Galileo FOC-7 & Galileo FOC-8

Soyuz Launch Complex
Kourou, French Guiana

The 7th and 8th “Full Operational Capability” satellites will be the 11th and 12th Galileo satellites launched, alongside the 6 FOC and 4 IOV spacecraft already in orbit. The Galileo constellation is ESA’s satellite navigation system and is expected to be completed by 2020. Galileo will provide Europe with an alternative to the American GPS and Russian GLONASS constellations, but will be interoperable with both systems.
