A bold objective: to open the gates of space to Italy. This was the spark that, on 18 October 1961, led to the birth of Telespazio. Sixty years later the people and technology have changed, but not the spirit. Today we’re a proudly European space company but with a strong global vocation. And first and foremost we’re innovators.
The 60th anniversary of Telepazio’s foundation is an opportunity to set ourselves some increasingly ambitious goals. Just fifteen years after the end of World War II the Fucino basin became our first home, a small, cutting-edge space station that within a few years would become the world’s first satellite teleport for civilian use. Tomorrow our home will be amongst the stars: first the Moon, then Mars, and then destinations unknown...
From space exploration support services to space domain awareness, from in-orbit services to the big data of geoinformation serving the public and the environment, all the way to new applications for satellite localisation and quantum communication: this is the tomorrow that Telespazio is already working on.
Today it is increasingly clear that our achievements in space, the technologies developed through them, and constant innovation are the elements that will determine how we’ll live, how we’ll move around and communicate, the extent to which we’ll be able to predict natural or man-made disasters and, in short, our success in creating a fully sustainable future for the new generations.
This is why the sixty years we want to celebrate are not so much those that have just gone by but those that are yet to come. Space to the Future!
