The European Agency for the operation of the Galileo European satellite navigation (GPS) system has announced that the system will resume soon after it stopped working six days ago.

The system, which began operating in a pilot phase since the end of 2016, was disrupted on Friday following a technical problem related to its infrastructure on the ground. A member of the Galileo team explained that “the basic services of the system have been restored to normal and commercial users can see Signs to resume his services. ”

Thanks to its 16 satellites orbiting Earth, the new Global Positioning System (GPS), Galileo, will enter into use in October and could surpass its rival GPS.

The Galileo system, as a satellite positioning system, is the equivalent of the GPS,  the Global Positioning System (GPS), which is being used by our smartphones, is currently being fully implemented by 30 satellites orbiting the earth at a height of 23,222 km.

Currently, there are 12 satellites in place, and four more satellites will join in October, meaning that the Galileo system will be in service by the end of the year and will be fully operational by 2020, when all satellites are in place.

The system will determine your location by satellite, provided you have the appropriate receiver “such as smart phone has this feature,” and we can find this system in the car, and know when the bus will arrive, and determine the location of friends or the nearest pharmacy, or How to get to the best resort, European Agency said.
