After 17 years of activity, AGILE (Astrorivelatore Gamma a Immagini LEggero, Light Imager for Gamma-ray Astrophysics), the scientific satellite of the Italian Space Agency (ASI), has re-entered the atmosphere. The “passivation” of the satellite, as required by international standards, was correctly carried out on 18 January by the Telespazio technicians in the Fucino Space Centre.
Telespazio Ibérica, in a joint venture led by the company Pegasus Aero Group, has won a 22-million-euro contract tendered by the Canary Islands Government, and financed with European Funds, for the development of innovative solutions.
Last January 26, 2024, Fucino Space Center welcomed the visit of European Commission's Director General Defense Industry and Space Timo Pesonen and a delegation from the European Commission, the Italian Prime Minister's Office, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Italian Space Agency.
Suppliers that wish to be candidates for becoming suppliers of Telespazio S.p.A. must access the Qualification System, answer the relevant questionnaires, and enter the data required.
The System, managed centrally by LGS for all Companies in the Leonardo Group, guarantees the utmost confidentiality and support with any difficulties when completing the forms.
Supplier Qualification Process
Self-registration: this makes you one of our Potential Suppliers, that is, Suppliers that may be invited to take part in negotiation processes with Telespazio. Once the self-registration form has been completed, the Potential Supplier will be asked to complete specific questionnaires for the goods categories covered by their candidacy. Updating of these may be requested from time to time.
Pre-qualification: becoming a pre-qualified supplier is an essential condition for taking part in negotiating processes with Telespazio. This procedure involves evaluating the ethical/legal and economic/financial requirements.
Qualification: being a qualified supplier is an essential condition for signing a contract or having a purchase order issued to your Company by Telespazio. During this process, the Supplier’s meeting of the technical/organisational requirements is assessed.
Self-registration does not guarantee business ties with Telespazio S.p.A., but merely represents a channel that can be used to become a Potential Supplier.
Candidacies for non-priority goods areas will only be analysed when Telespazio has an actual need, based on the number of suppliers already included in the List of Suppliers, or due to specific business requirements.
The Self-registration questionnaires must be completed fully and exhaustively. If any of the information requested is left out, this may result in being excluded from the List of Potential Suppliers for that category.
