Leonardo has signed a framework contract with European Space Agency (ESA) to provide subject matter experts ahead of participation at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) conference in London this week.

Under the €11M/year framework contract, Leonardo’s Telespazio VEGA UK subsidiary will provide subject matter experts to the ESA covering areas such as earth observation, satellite communications and navigation, science operations and training support for astronauts, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

The framework contract, signed by Leonardo’s Luton-based Telespazio VEGA UK subsidiary and worth €11M per year for up to five years, will see the company provide subject matter experts to the ESA in support of their programmes and missions.

Telespazio VEGA UK is able to draw on the pan-European presence of the Telespazio Group to provide high quality staff, with a wide variety of engineering skillsets, to all of the ESA’s locations in Europe. Such skill sets include satellite communications/navigation, remote sensing, integrated applications, software and control systems, automation, optics, electromagnetics, power/radio-frequency systems, science operations, and training support for astronauts.
