Telespazio VEGA has been involved in the space business for over 35 years.
Telespazio VEGA Deutschland was born in summer 2012 when Telespazio Deutschland and VEGA Space GmbH merged into one company. Both Telespazio Deutschland and VEGA have a long heritage with the Space industry and have both been trusted partner to space institutional clients for many years.
VEGA’s heritage starts in 1978 with a group of 4 operations engineers starting a company to offer operations engineering services to ESA/ESOC in Darmstadt, Germany. The company grew from this to provide a full operations engineering capability to clients such as ESOC and EUMETSAT, and evolved to offer full ground segment systems development for clients internationally.
Telespazio Deutschland's background
Telespazio Deutschland’s heritage initially comes from Thomson CSF Group who initially had a contract at ESOC providing 24/7 operations support services. In the early 1980’s this grew to include operations services to GSOC – The German Space Agency’s operations centre. By the mid 2000’s Telespazio Deutschland was formed, providing 24/7 operations and engineering services to clients including ESOC, DLR, EUMETSAT and primes such as TAS.
Today, Telespazio VEGA Deutschland employs over 350 staff working around Europe, and is a subsidiary of Telespazio S.p.A, with around 2500 staff worldwide. We are an established and recognised market leader in systems and operations engineering services, consulting and technology, offering a broad portfolio of products and services.
