With over 150 staff at the Guiana Space Centre, Telespazio France has been the main industrial partner of the Kourou spaceport for more than 40 years, ensuring the maintenance and operation of ground infrastructure facilities.
We have decided to leverage this experience to become a launch service operator for microlaunchers by developing a comprehensive offer from factory exit up to orbit. This strategic goal is based, among other things, on the provision and operation of ground infrastructures for microlauncher preparation and tracking. Thoses standardizes ground means are compatible with different microlaunchers and multiple spaceports.

A first concrete implementation of our ambition will be carried out with the startup HyprSpace in the frame of the two France 2030 projects: PADA1 (BPI) and R2D2 (CNES).

Our innovative, reliable and mobile solutions are quickly deployable and operated with a minimal number of people in order to meet the flexibility and competitiveness challenges of new players in the access to space domain. Rapidly reconfigurable, our ground systems allow, at a lower cost, to  increase the number of launch slots. Thus, they are an ideal system to complement existing infrastructures or to be used as a first station for spaceports willing to host microlaunchers.
