In this interview, Jean-Marc Piéplu, the EGNOS Exploitation Program Manager at the European GNSS Agency, discusses the role of EU Spine Operating Galileo and EGNOS within the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service. Editor in Chief Emma Gatti and Jean Marc discussed how the European GNSS Service Centre and the Galileo Reference Centres contribute to the provision of the Galileo Service, and the services provided by EUSPA.

The complexity and importance of maintaining and evolving the infrastructure to meet our every day needs is staggering,  and much of this “unseen” work is performed by EUSPA.  Is Galileo competitive against its American more famous counterpart?  The answer is in this radio episode!
