New ephemerides of Jupiter's Galilean satellites are produced from an analysis of CCD astrometric data, Voyager-mission optical navigation images, mutual event observations, photographic plates, and eclipse timing observations. The resulting parameters, for use in the galsat computer software, are in the B1950 frame for use by the Galileo space mission. Results in the J2000 system are also available.
