Galileo satellite illustration (OHB System) OHB and Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (SSTL) have won a contract for another eight Galileo navigation satellites. The companies signed the contract June 22 with the European Space Agency, which procures the satellites on behalf of the EU. The companies won the contract despite Brexit-related complications for UK-based SSTL, which will require some kind of agreement to allow the company to continue working on classified parts of the Galileo payload after the country exits the EU.
