The Galileo Wagon Tracking system (GaWaLoc), a global satellite navigation system, is ready for commercial development and is expected to enter European markets in 2010/2011.

The GaWaLoc system is a real-time monitoring and surveillance technology for wagons, locomotives and block trains in European countries that detects any unusual activity on the vehicle and flags up any deviations from schedule or location.

A Thales-led consortium has recently completed a study on the technology, finalising its specification and design.

GaWaLoc is an Era-Star project partially funded by Austria and the Bavarian state of Germany.
