Plans to start up the EU’s first global satellite navigation system (GNSS) built under civilian control, entirely independent of other navigation systems and yet interoperable with them, were approved by MEPs on Wednesday. Both parts of this global system - Galileo and EGNOS - will offer citizens a European alternative to America’s GPS or Russia’s Glonass signals for many applications in their daily lives
