Telespazio France: contribution to the improvement of citizens’ safety and security

We are convinced that a simple link between Man and Space is essential to our life on Earth, because Space is a key technological and human enabler to protect the planet and its inhabitants. We have faith in Humankind and diversity, we believe in technology and skills development. We act on the basis of our founding values of Commitment, Innovation and Partnership.

Thanks to our historical legitimacy, our global expertise and our European dimension, we put the strength of two European Leaders and the agility of our human-sized structure at the service of our mission. Our ambition is to democratize the access to the space services of today and tomorrow, through an open logic of "Space On Demand". We bring together the skills and partnerships needed to provide the best solutions, in a market undergoing profound change.

Together with EENA and European Institutions, we support the development of innovative solutions for European citizens’ safety and security in close cooperation with actors from the whole operational chains:

  • Deployment of Advanced Mobile Location in Europe with EC HELP112 projects;
  • Development of a system for monitoring the health of workers, which includes an emergency communication functionality based on PEMEA standards, with EC H2020 WorkingAge project;
  • Galileo Emergency Warning Service proof of concept, with EC GRALLE project;
  • Galileo Emergency Warning Service consolidation and demonstrations, with EC STELLAR project;
  • SBAS-based alerting capability demonstration in Sub-Saharan Africa, during the SBAS ASECNA project;
  • SAR/Galileo Two Way Communication service prototype and demonstration, with the EC SERENITY project.

We also operate Cospas-Sarsat French Mission Control Centre, SAR/Galileo Service Centre and SAR/Galileo Service with CNES.

All of these efforts, all of these resources and all of these successes are enabling us to pursue our actions for the benefit of Europe’s and the world’s citizens, and helping to accomplish the noble mission of saving lives.
