Telematic Solutions Awarded EUR8Mn Contract For Vega Pad Work In Kourou,


Kourou, French Guiana (SPX) Dec 28, 2005
Telematics Solutions S.p.A., Milan, a subsidiary of OHB Technology AG, has today been awarded a contract worth EUR 8 million from Italian company Vitrociset S.p.A., Rome. In signing the contract, Telematics Solutions has assumed a leading role in the development and implementation of the complex telecommunications network and security system for the launch pad for the VEGA launcher in Kourou, French Guiana.

The VEGA, the new European carrier rocket, has been designed for transporting small to mid-size low-earth orbit satellites used for scientific and earth observation missions in particular. As the development phase for the launch pad infrastructure has very largely been completed, construction work in Kourou will commence by the end of 2007, after which the first VEGA launcher will take off from the European launch pad in South America.

"This contract will further reinforce our leading role in telecommunications and security management for complex and sensitive sites," says Lanfranco Zucconi, managing director of Telematic Solutions S.p.A.

As a result of this contract, the OHB Technology Group is now involved in the construction and maintenance of all launch pads in Kourou. In addition to the VEGA project assigned to Telematic Solutions, MT Aerospace AG, Augsburg, is making a key contribution to the Ariane-5 and Soyus programs.
