Thales Alenia Space

Thales Alenia Space, now Thales Group, is a company that looked to deliver and operate space systems

Thales Alenia Space was known for the design, integration, testing, operation, and delivery of satellite, space-based systems. The company was founded in Toulouse, Midi-Pyrenees, France.

The company is looked to by governments, institutions, and private companies to observe Earth, and to optimize the resources that can be found on the planet. They have projects to connect digital divides between people through satellites, to explore space, for national security and defense, for observation, digital innovations, and travel and navigation.

The company operates and delivers satellite-based systems that observe Earth through a joint venture partnership with Leonardo. They also work with a company named Telespazio. They have provided signalling, communications, transportation solutions, fare collections and cybersecurity for countries, cities, and transport operators.

Thales Alenia Space has helped Omnispace to plan a satellite constellation to constantly connect mobile asset trackers, sensors, and smart devices using common cellular standards by providing two prototype spacecrafts.
