ESA and GomSpace Luxembourg sign contract for continued constellation management development

Today, GomSpace’s subsidiary in Luxembourg and the European Space Agency (ESA) signed a development contract at a value of EUR 1,425,000 for GomSpace Luxembourg SARL’s continued development of the Mega-Constellation Operations Platform (MCOP) product.

The development of MCOP was initiated in 2018 under the first development contract resulting in development of a minimum viable product focusing on scalability which was recently proven through the first operational deployment test.

The new contract will enable GomSpace to take constellation management and the MCOP product to the next level. Additional features will be added, including:

  • Constellation level simulation and planning to optimize operations
  • Increased automation to reduce operator workloads
  • Improved visualisation and constellation level situational awareness

Our customers are increasingly paying attention to the scaling and operational aspects of their constellation plans. Given that our MCOP offering is developing according to plan, we are able to respond with a compelling solution helping our customers to achieve lower lifetime costs and improved return on investment,” says Niels Buus, CEO at GomSpace.

The contract is funded by the Luxembourg Space Agency through the Luxembourg National Space Programme LuxIMPULSE and it is being implemented through ESA.

Marc Serres of the Luxembourg Space Agency said: “We are pleased with GomSpace Luxembourg’s continued development as they are becoming an important part of the space ecosystem in Luxembourg and are bringing unique and innovative commercial offerings to the satcom market”.
