Telespazio and Reflex Aerospace Sign Agreement to Deliver Comprehensive Satellite Solutions

Telespazio Germany and Reflex Aerospace have signed a cooperation agreement for a shared provision of an end-to-end satellite solution. The announcement will see the companies pool their respective expertise in their segment, offering a seamless experience, with Reflex providing its payload-specific satellites and Telespazio its ground segment and mission control capabilities, delivered through its EASE-Rise platform

Once established, following Reflex’s first planned commercial satellite mission in the fall of 2024, the end-to-end solution can be used by customers for any number of applications, such as communications or Earth Observation, with both platforms and mission control managed by Reflex and Telespazio Germany.

“Our partnership with Reflex underscores the importance of German cooperation in the aerospace sector,” comments Sigmar Keller, Chief Executive Officer at Telespazio Germany. “This collaboration will empower us to pool our resources, expertise, and technology, enabling us to offer cutting-edge solutions that position us as key players in the international satellite industry. We are excited to begin this partnership with Reflex.”

Walter Ballheimer, Chief Executive Officer at Reflex Aerospace, commented: “This partnership with Telespazio Germany underscores our commitment to push boundaries and shape the future of technology in orbit. We share a similar mindset of innovation and collaboration. By combining our unique strengths – their ground segment expertise and our revolutionary satellite platforms – we’re affirming our mission: To enable lightning-fast innovation in space.”

The cooperation was announced not only to showcase the strength of German expertise in satellite technology but also to enhance the companies’ combined capabilities, fostering innovation in the aerospace sector. This cooperative effort ensures compatibility and mutual support, streamlining operations and leading to cost-efficiency. Moreover, it helps expand their global reach, positioning both European companies for success in the satellite industry while simultaneously reinforcing the value of German collaboration.

Reflex offers customized satellites designed to tackle the most challenging missions. They apply modern manufacturing and a unique design process to every satellite, resulting in enhanced reliability, the highest-performing core avionics in class, and radically improved delivery times. 

Telespazio has developed the EASE-Rise platform, which provides monitoring and control capabilities for space data missions including, but not limited to, asset monitoring and control (M&C), mission planning, and flight dynamics. This partnership agreement highlights Reflex’s commitment to using Telespazio as their primary ground segment contractor and partner. Telespazio, in return, commits to supporting Reflex in future projects as a strategic partner for ground solutions and ensuring compatibility of their mission control software with Reflex’s satellites.
