Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%), is one of the world’s leading players in satellite services. The company, headquartered in Rome (Italy), employs approximately 2500 people, relying on an international network of space centres and teleports, and operating worldwide through many subsidiaries and joint ventures.


Telespazio is a leading company in sectors that are becoming increasingly important to public institutions, business operators and consumers. Its activities range from the design and development of space systems to the management of launch services and in-orbit satellite control, from Earth observation services, integrated communications, satellite navigation and localization, to scientific programmes. Telespazio now covers the whole space market value chain through its three lines of business: Satellite System and Operations, Geoinformation, and Satellite Communications.


Telespazio responds to new demands in the satellite services market with innovative ideas, offering new solutions, implementing international projects. Today more than ever, Telespazio is a true innovator, transforming what were once just possibilities into real services available to an increasingly wide audience. Telespazio relies on a wealth of experience of the highest level, stemming from technological expertise acquired over 50 years of activity. The company’s experience is also drawn from the management of space infrastructure - including the Fucino Space Centre, the world’s largest civilian teleport - as well as from its involvement in major space programmes, including Galileo, EGNOS, Copernicus, COSMO-SkyMed, SICRAL and Göktürk.
