The fact that Germany and Bavaria are not one
and the same thing gives rise to lively discus-
sion in Germany and worldwide. As a German
company,
Telespazio VEGA Deutschland
is well
aware of Bavaria’s special characteristics.
FIRMLY ANCHORED IN THE MUNICH AREA
About 20% of the company‘s 350 employees in
Germany work in the Munich area. The impor-
tance of Bavaria was accordingly taken into
account: Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, with
headquarters in Darmstadt, has had a branch
in Gilching close to GSOC in Oberpfaffenhofen
since the 1980s.
From that location this space company supports
the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in satel-
lite operations (GSOC and the Weilheim ground
station), in operating the Columbus module on
the International Space Station (ISS) and at the
Galileo Control Center for the Galileo satellites.
In Darmstadt Telespazio VEGA Deutschland
supports the European Space Operations Centre
(ESOC) and EUMETSAT with involvement in
more than 45 current or concluded European
space missions, including Rosetta, ExoMars and
BepiColombo.
GLOBAL PORTFOLIO FOR BAVARIA
The range of services offered has rapidly ex-
panded over the years. Aerospace customers are
supported throughout the entire lifetime of a
mission with:
•
Ground systems – specification, design,
development, integration, implementation
and maintenance of software-intensive
satellite ground systems
•
Satellite operations – single platforms and
fleets
•
Services and applications – technology
transfer and systems development
•
Networks and connectivity – Satellite
communication services
