A Great History of Innovation

From developing space systems to managing launch and in-orbit control services for satellites. From Earth Observation to Navigation, and through to major scientific programs. The future has out mark on it.

We are a joint-venture that brings together two big European partners:  Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%). We lead the way in Europe and are one of the major players worldwide in the satellite solutions and services field.  But, before all else, we are innovators. 

We have always brought passion and commitment to our work, to offer institutions, companies, and consumers cutting-edge services in strategic sectors.  From designing and developing space systems to managing launch and in-orbit control services for satellites. From Earth Observation service, to integrated communications and through to satellite positioning.

And that’s not all.  We are in the front line in the major European space missions and have actively cooperate with leading space agencies worldwide.  From the outset, programmes of crucial importance, such as Galileo, EGNOS, Copernicus, COSMO-SkyMed and SICRAL, have chosen to rely on our many years of experience. 

In addition to our technological skills, honed in 60 years, we provide clients with our capacity to manage top space infrastructures.  This is the case with the Fucino Space Centre, one of the largest teleports in the world for civilian use, and one of the first to attain complete WTA certification.

The World - Our Home

With a structured network of space centres and teleports, and our companies abroad, we can boast of a widespread, established presence in Europe and the World. 

We operate in France via Telespazio France, in Great Britain via Telespazio UK, in Spain via Telespazio Iberica and in Belgium with Vitrociset Belgium.

In Germany, we are able to count on three companies: Telespazio Germany,  GAF and SpaceOpal (an equal-partner collaboration with the German Space Agency DLR). 

Our Company is also present in Romania through RARTEL, and the Romanian Telecommunications Company Radiocor is also one of its partners.  Overseas, our presence is provided by our South American companies:  Telespazio Argentina and Telespazio Brasil.

The network of our subsidiaries is completed by the Italian company e-GEOS, founded in partnership with the Italian Space Agency (shareholding 20%).

We offer our clients, both institutions and companies, tailored solutions, based on their diverse needs.  Actually, our three lines of business cover the entire value chain for the space market: Satellite Communications, Geo Information and Satellite Systems and Operations.

Today, as in 1961, when Telespazio was founded, we take on the challenge of the future. We ask ourselves new questions and design cutting-edge solutions, driven by a curiosity to discover what will come next.  We do this every day, with the strength of the value and ideas of 3000 workers.  We are the men and women who turn simple possibilities into dedicated services for an ever wider user community, every day. We are Telespazio.
