DLR GFR MBH
We’re the DLR Space Applications Institute mbH – the DLR GfR for short. From our control center in Operpfaffenhofen near Munich, we monitor the operation of Galileo – the European global satellite navigation, timing, and positioning system.
Galileo is the only satellite navigation system of its kind under civil control – and it’s the most precise, too. On behalf of the European Commission, we head up all the tasks that ensure the secure and error-free operation of the mission. Something over 1.4 billion smartphone users rely upon each and every day.
