  • Negotiations between the US and Europe have failed to reach an agreement about a potential conflict between the GPS and Galileo navigation systems. American officials are concerned that, if implemented as currently planned, it would be impossible to turn off Galileo's signals in a selected region without affecting military use of GPS. Those officials said the US may take the issue to NATO as a "force protection issue" if negotiations are not successful.
  • A Russian rocket will launch Saudi Arabia's third satellite in November, officials said Saturday. The small scientific satellite will be one of several satellites launched on a Dnepr rocket from Baikonur. Two Saudi satellites were launched by Russia in 2000.
