      Copernicus - Sentinel-5P satellite launched successfully: Set to monitor the Earth's atmosphere conditions

      Plesetsk Cosmodrome (Russia) - 13/10/2017

      The Sentinel-5P satellite - part of the ESA’s Copernicus Earth observation programme - was launched successfully today at 9:27 GMT (11:27 CET) from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia, using a Rockot carrier.

      This is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring the atmosphere. The information gathered by the Sentinel-5P will be used through the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service to forecast the quality of the air and for decision-making processes.

      The Sentinel-5P will join another five ESA Sentinels put into orbit since 2014.

      Since 2013, Telespazio, along with its subsidiary Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, has played its part in preparing the Sentinel-5P mission as part of the contract awarded to it by the ESOC (ESA’s European Space Operations Centre). Telespazio VEGA Deutschland provided a vast array of services: from operations and engineering, to flight dynamics and ICT (network engineering, IT coordination and data systems).

      Telespazio is one of the leading industrial partners in Copernicus, a programme coordinated and run by the European Commission, in order to provide Europe with its own Earth observation capacity. The Company has been and continues to be involved in the creation, maintenance, and evolution of the Payload Data Ground Segments (PDGS) for Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-3, the Mission Control Systems for Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-5P and the infrastructure for access to the Earth observation products the Copernicus missions (Copernicus Space Component Data Access – Coordinated Data Access System – CSCDA/CDS).

      Within the Copernicus Operations sector, Telespazio’s staff supports to the ESOC during pre- and post-launch phases for the Sentinel satellites, and is responsible for CSCDA/CDS operations, as well as for acquiring data from the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 missions, from the e-GEOS Space Centre in Matera. In addition, as the main contractor, it will be responsible for managing the end-to-end service for the operations until 2021, and for maintenance and evolution of the entire earth segment of the Sentinel-3 mission.

      oreover, it supports AIRBUS in its operational activities for the entire earth segment of the Sentinel-1 mission.ithin the Copernicus Operations sector, Telespazio’s staff supports to the ESOC during pre- and post-launch phases for the Sentinel satellites, and is responsible for CSCDA/CDS operations, as well as for acquiring data from the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 missions, from the e-GEOS Space Centre in Matera.

      In the Copernicus Services sector, Telespazio engages in the activities related to the management of emergencies, land and maritime safety, management of ground resources, and the monitoring climate changes. In fact, the Matera Space Centre is one of three Core Ground Segment stations for the Copernicus programme, and receives radar and optical data acquired by the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 missions.

      Finally, Telespazio provides earth observation data obtained from the COSMO-SkyMed and IRS missions to the Copernicus programme.

      Learn to fly a satellite like a pro in the new DLR_School_Lab of the TU Darmstadt

      ​Press release - Darmstadt, 21 September 2017   

      The German aerospace company Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, a subsidiary of Telespazio S.p.A. (Leonardo/Thales), is supporting the new DLR_School_Lab in Darmstadt. The company is providing simulation software that professionals use to learn how to control satellites. This was made possible thanks to a special collaboration with the European Space Operations Centre (ESA/ESOC).

      The School Lab of the TU Darmstadt and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) was opened on 21 September 2017. There, schoolchildren can discover the world of technology and research through exciting experiments.

      For the focus area “Space”, the Lab has installed a room which resembles ESOC’s Main Control Room – only that no real satellites will be controlled from there. The satellites come into play with Telespazio VEGA Deutschland’s simulation software, the “Spacecraft Operations Training Centre” (STC). At the console however, the schoolchildren will not notice the difference, for the simulation, the satellite’s behaviour is reproduced as realistically as possible. Trajectory calculations, critical manoeuvres and teamwork are as exciting in the Lab as in real-life operations.

      The STC was developed in 2009 by Telespazio VEGA Deutschland in collaboration with ESA to convey spacecraft operations to a young audience, such as students, in a simplified and fun way. Several universities have integrated the STC in their curriculum ever since. Furthermore, the STC is used to teach newcomers and lateral entrants the basics of spacecraft operations before starting to work on real consoles.

      Sigmar Keller, Managing Director of Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, was enthusiastic about the installation at the inauguration event of the DLR_School_Lab: “It is a privilege to support the Lab in our home town Darmstadt. Not only because we are collaborating with our long-standing and much appreciated partners ESOC, DLR and the TU Darmstadt, but also because together we are laying the foundation for inspiring schoolchildren for space.”

      Telespazio VEGA Deutschland has been developing professional simulation software for satellites for many decades, for example for the ESA missions Rosetta or BepiColombo. Quite often, clients also make use of the associated training services: so-called simulation officers create ideal as well as contingency scenarios that can happen during satellite operations. Leading the Flight Control Team through an intense training plan, they always adapt to the particularities of each individual satellite and mission.
