    Many Location Based Services (LBS), such as navigation and tracking
    services, are using Global Satellite-based Navigation Systems (GNSS). GNSS is
    the most widely used positioning solution for LBS outdoors, therefore any improve-
    ment in the quality of GNSS positioning services will directly improve the quality
    of LBS and therefore it will generate more revenue and attract more users. One
    of the upcoming satellite navigation systems is Galileo, which is being deployed
    by the European Union (EU). Beside all political motivations behind Galileo, the
    availability of more satellites in view and a more accurate, reliable and continuous
    positioning service are some of the technological motivations of having yet another
    of GNSS on sky. Such improvement in positioning service and, as a result, in LBS
    applications will develop the market and attract more users. However, due to long
    delays, current powerful competitors which are making the GNSS market increas-
    ingly crowded, and also the cost of Galileo being covered by EU taxpayers only,
    there is a question if another of GNSS is really required and it is able to return all
    its cost in near future. This chapter assesses the financial aspects of Galileo at the
    time of writing the book, including increasing costs and impact of losing some parts
    of market and also its potential revenue and the economic impact of positioning and
    timing service improvement by Galileo, and finally the impact of Galileo on future
    markets of LBS is estimated.
