This government has made clear its ambitions for renewed vigour in space, through our new ministerial-level National Space Council and developing a UK Space Strategy to bring long-term strategic and commercial benefits for the UK. A sovereign UK global navigation satellite system (GNSS) is being investigated within this ambition. The very purpose of the current engineering design and development phase (EDDP) is to ascertain the UK’s requirements and how we can meet them, so it’s right and proper that we take the appropriate time to investigate fully, involving our key international allies.
