In the 30 years since Telespazio VEGA Deutschland’s first contract in the space market, many things have changed. With highly qualified and experienced staff working on space programmes throughout Europe and beyond, Telespazio VEGA is fully involved in the change process and partially forms it. 30 years ago, Europe was building and launching its first telecommunication and weather forecasting research satellites. Today, spacecraft have a great influence on our day-to-day lives and have become a fundamental part of societies' critical infrastructure.
What we do
We support our partners in the Space market mainly by developing and operating the ground infrastructure that they need for study, preparation, training and successful operation of a mission.
Our heritage is the institutional Space market in Europe, primarily with the European Space Agency (ESA), EUMETSAT and national Space Agencies such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR). During the past decades we gained experience in all types of Space programmes, supporting our clients throughout all phases of a mission lifecycle.
Telespazio VEGA is a major partner of ESOC and GSOC in the field of spacecraft operations.
Increasingly, Telespazio VEGA Deutschland is contributing to the exploitation of space assets, through the development of applications for other markets. We are a shareholder in the Centre for Satellite Navigation in Hessen (cesah)
and fully involved in ESA’s drive to support innovation through the use of space products. Increasingly, Telespazio VEGA is becoming involved in commercial space programmes in and outside Europe and in the use of satellites to help increase our society’s security.
