The EUR7 billion budget will be used to complete satellite navigation infrastructure, operations, replenishment and replacement activities, development of elements such as chipsets or receivers and provision of services for the Galileo and EGNOS programmes. European Commission will be responsible for the programmes' progress and overall supervision while GNSS will gradually assume responsibility for operational management and European Space Agency will remain responsible for deployment and design and development of new systems.
