ESA created the Galileo Directorate

The role of the GSA is becoming weaker day by day. ESA announced a new Directorate for the implementation of the Galileo programme. As you can read on the ESA website: "The Galileo Directorate is devoted to the implementation of the Galileo Programme for the European Commission and to other related satellite navigation activities. The Directorate is set up to cope with the wide changes that have taken place in this programme concerning the deployment of the Galileo system and its complete infrastructure, and the system level responsibility and industrial prime role that ESA will take on under an Agreement with the European Commission.". Now the future of the GSA is more uncertain.
