Successful Navigation Test Campaign for recovered Galileo satellite FOC-FM1

Galileo FOC

The European Space Agency (ESA) has recovered one of two satellites (Galileo-FOC FM1) that were put into the wrong orbit when launched on 22 August 2014.

The European Commission will take a decision shortly on whether to employ them for the Galileo satellite navigation system as originally planned.

The two satellites, the fifth and sixth of the Galileo series, were directed into a prolonged orbit - up to 25,900 km above the Earth and back down to 13,713 km - rather than completing the expected circular trajectory.
