ALTEC - Interstellar Advances

(Inter)Stellar Advances

Augmented collaboration behind the scenes in the space industry is improving customer experience through increased customer involvement. Use-It-Wisely space partners set out almost three years ago to develop innovative software that will allow adaptable and customisable systems for spacecraft manufacturing and upgrades. This involves direct involvement of the customer, so that the overall system is adaptable to different types of space missions. Read more

Thales Alenia Space

Industry Partner – Space Technologies

Thales Alenia Space
Strada Antica di Collegno 253,

Italy.

Tel: 39 06 415 14 24 24
Web: www.thalesgroup.com/en/thales-alenia-space

Thales Alenia Space is a joint subsidiary of Thales (67%) and Finmeccanica (33%), and a partner in the Space Alliance along with Telespazio. The company has 7,500 employees in France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Germany and United States, and posted total revenues of 2.1 billion euros in 2011.

Thales Alenia Space has more than 40 years of experience in the design, integration, testing, operation and commissioning of innovative space systems. Featuring cutting-edge technologies, these systems meet the needs of commercial, government, scientific, defense and security customers from around the world.

The satellites and payloads designed by Thales Alenia Space set the global standard for space systems that provide communications and navigation services, monitor our environment and the oceans, help us better understand climate change and drive scientific progress. The company is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of communications satellites, platforms and payloads, which account for 50% of its business, offering a complete range of solutions, from high-performance components to turnkey systems.

Thales Alenia Space has been the prime contractor for European weather satellites for more than three decades. The company is also a strategic supplier of military satellite communications systems in Europe, as prime contractor for three generations of the Syracuse system in France and two generations of its Italian counterpart Sicral, and space segment prime for the German system Satcom BW.

Always a pivotal partner in Europe’s missions to explore our Solar System, Thales Alenia Space has integrated orbiters, produced sub-surface radars and, above all, the company designed the Huygens probe – a world first, which explored the atmosphere of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. Thales Alenia Space is also prime contractor for ExoMars, ESA’s most ambitious Mars mission, and for Herschel and Planck, the largest space observatories ever built in Europe. In addition, we developed Corot, the French “exoplanet” hunter, and we are working on the Alma radiotelescope array in Chile.

Advanced electronics from Thales Alenia Space represents about half of the avionics used on the Ariane 5 launcher. In addition, the company is the only European subcontractor on the Russian Soyuz launchers now being operated from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana, as supplier of the European safety kit.

Thales Alenia Space is also a leading supplier to the International Space Station and is a pivotal player in space systems designed to explore the Universe.

Spacecraft design

Updates from Use-It-Wisely’s Space Cluster

Our space researchers are developing a software which will allow those in the space sector to create a virtual model of a spacecraft, in terms of technical data, related simulations and 3D visualisations. This may be used by technical teams to quickly design a spacecraft according to customer needs. The aim of the research is that the collaboration tool may be used across the European space sector as a whole once it is fully developed and validated.
