By using spacebourne atomic clocks, Europes chefs will be able to produce the perfect boiled egg.
Ok so I am joking.. but based on the reporting so far of todays successful launch of the Giove-A satelitte – I would not be surpised to find it somewhere.
Make no mistake Galileo when operational will be a technically superior system to GPS and will expand the potential uses of precise positioning hugely.
But the real story here, should be how this political endeavor will be funded? – the costs of the development and then operation of Galileo is expected to come largely from commercial operations – a market not yet established ?
Will satnav makers be willing to license chipsets to receive Galileo signals ?
