Description : Soyuz VS 26 launcher launched from the Guiana Space Center (CSG), 2 satellites of the European navigation system Galileo
They will thus bring to 28 the number of components of this constellation, capable of giving positions of the order of a meter.
Among the Galileo satellites already in place, 14 were transported by the Russian launcher and 12 by Ariane 5s. Ultimately, the constellation will include 30 satellites
From 2024, new generation Galileo satellites will be launched to continue to compete with the American GPS system, in particular for questions of strategic sovereignty.
This shot is also loaded with symbolism since the year 2021 corresponds to the tenth anniversary of Soyuz’s presence in Guyana. Since 2011, the year of the first launch, 26 launchers of this type have taken off from Sinnamary, a town near Kourou,
