Telespazio ranks among the world’s leading satellite services operators. The company relies on a domestic and international network of space centres and teleports, the most important being the Fucino in the Abruzzo region (Italy).
The Fucino Space Centre was established in the early sixties for managing the first satellite telecommunications experiments between Europe and the United States.
In Italy, Telespazio also operates through its Lario, Matera, and Scanzano Space Centres, located respectively in the regions of Lombardy, Basilicata, and Sicily. The company runs its own teleports in Brazil, Argentina, and Romania.
Telespazio’s staff operates also out of clients’ facilities and teleports worldwide, providing operational support for space operations, maintenance and site management.
Most importantly, Telespazio is present within the Italian Defense Centres of Pratica di Mare and Vigna di Valle (Rome). In Malargue, Argentina, it manages ESA’s Deep Space 3 station.
In France, it runs the Creil and Maysons-Lafitte stations and in Malindi, Kenya, the Italian Space Agency’s Broglio Space Centre.
The company is also present at the Kourou Space Centre in French Guyana.
