No fandango for you: EU boots UK off Galileo satellite project

WTF?

clearly no one with knowledge of the system...

so its clear that no one with any knowledge of the system made that decision as its completely pointless

americans have access to high precision corrections in fact anyone with a well surveyed site like the current command and control sites and knowledge/equipment of timing should be enough...

So if the UK military have any intelligence they will get in there and keep those sites and personnel going and simply feed the corrections back to any equipment needed.

the U.K. civil service did a number on the europeans and they didnt even realise, one less outgoing and they get to ask for a refund...

the loss will be to the Galileo project which I am actually sad about but thats what happens if you let bureaucrats rather than engineers and scientists run the show...
