Consortium with Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advises the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA)
In January, a consortium consisting of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, PwC Legal Germany and the Czech Republic, as well as Prague-based law firm KSB was awarded the contract for various legal advisory services in a call for tenders by GSA. The European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) in Prague is an agency founded by the European Union whose mission is to implement the satellite programs GALILEO and EGNOS. GALILEO is a satellite navigation system that will be completed in orbit by 2020, providing improved positioning and timing information with significant positive implications for many European services and users. EGNOS is the Europe's regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) that is used to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs), such as GPS and Galileo.
