|Eastern Ulethan Space Agency Federation|
The Eastern Ulethan Space Agency Federation (EUSAF), sometimes also called Eastern Ulethan Space Agency Foundation, is an intergovernmental organisation closely associated with the EUOIA and dedicated to the exploration of space. Established in 1972, it is headquartered in Viljanni.

Ludenitz Space Center
The Ludenitz Space Center (Mergan: Ɯєlτrąưӎɓąӊɲӊoƒ Lưɗєɲїτƶ) is a Mergan and Eastern Ulethan space port in Ludenitz, a territory of Mergany in eastern Archanta. Opened in 1975, Mergany offered to share the spaceport with EUSAF from the beginning. Nowadays, the spaceport is open for a large number of nations and commercial companies. The location was selected in 1972 since it fulfills three major geographical criteria:
- it has open sea to the east,
- it is near the equator and
- the region is sparsely populated.
General Localization Services
The General Localization Services (GLS), originally Satbased GLS, is the global navigation satellite system created by the Eastern Ulethan Organisation of Independent Allies (EUOIA) through the Eastern Ulethan Space Agency Federation (EUSAF), established since 1985. It provides time and geolocation information to a GLS receiver anywhere on or near the planet. One of the aims of GLS is to provide independent high-precision navigation data so EUOIAn nations do not have to rely on other systems, which could be disabled or degraded by their operators at any time. The use of lower-precision GLS is free and open to everyone, whereas higher-precision capabilities are available for paying commercial users. Headquartered in tbd, the system is controled from three ground operations centers in tbd, tbd and tbd.
The 27 GLS satellites are distributed into three orbital planes with semi-major axis of 25455 km. They are distributed evenly within the orbits and the three orbital planes are distributed evenly around the Equator, which gives a spacing of 120 degrees between the ascending nodes.
