Despite £4.5m being raised from the use of speed cameras in Northern Ireland in the last four years, none of this money has been spent to further increase road safety in the region.

A Member of the Legislative Assembly, Ulster Unionist Robin Swann, commented "It's an absolute outrage that despite almost £4.5 million being raised from speed camera fines over the last four years, that by the Department of Justice's own admission, not one penny has been reinvested in road safety initiatives."

News: Ariane 5 lifts off with four more Galileo satellites

pocketgpsworld.com
An Ariane 5 rocket completed a successful launch from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana yesterday afternoon carrying four Galileo satellites.

The launch took place on time and the satellite deployment was performed by a new payload dispenser system from Airbus Safran Launchers. The first pair of satellites were released 3 hours and 35 minutes after launch and the second pair following 20 minutes later.

The four spacecraft are called Antonianna, Lisa, Kimberley and Tijmen – named after children from Italy, Hungary, Malta and The Netherlands who won a European drawing contest.

This launch brings the Galileo system to a total of 18 satellites and was the first time four have been launched at once and also marks the first use of Arianespace's Ariane 5 heavy-lift launch vehicle.

News: ESA To Launch Four Galileo Satellites Next Week

pocketgpsworld.com
The European Space Agency will be launching four Galileo satellites next week (17th November 2016) from a single rocket. Previous launches have delivered them to orbit in pairs from French Guiana using Soyuz rockets. The upcoming launch, which will bring the total number of satellites to 18, will be using an Ariane 5 rocket.

Once they reach their orbit of 23,200km (58x the distance of the International Space Station) the ESA will spend two weeks positioning the satellites to their operational positions.

Galileo will ultimately consist of 24 satellites (the navigation payloads having been made by UK company Surrey Satellite Technology) and will give Europe full control of their own independent navigation system. The main GPS system currently used is the US Military's Navstar system which can, if The President wishes, be "turned off" for civilian use.
