Galileo is the program that has been launched by the European Union for the purpose of building a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for serving civilians and to exist under civil control. Our project combines many previous researched scenarios for Galileo system to a final one, which has been simulated and adjusted to meet the most demanding standards (of proposed GNSS services). The final simulated scenario is consisted of 30 (27+3 spare) satellites allocated in 3 orbital planes.
