VEGA Space GmbH: Towards a safer world

From planning to orbit. For more than three decades, VEGA’s principal custo­mers, such as the European Space Agency (ESA) and EUMETSAT, have placed their trust in the competencies of our more than 200 employees for the preparation, development and control of complex systems. Through simulation-based training solutions, astronauts, satellites and heli­­copter pilots are able to fly safely – whether they operate airborne, in orbit or in space.

From orbit to Darmstadt. Our inter­­na­tional engagement is also apparent in the region in which our company is based. VEGA is a member of the Intel­li­­gente Trans­­port- und Verkehrssysteme Hessen e. V. (ITS) (intelligent transport and traffic systems) and shareholder of the Centre for Satellite Navigation Hesse (cesah). Through cooperation with companies in the region, we want to use satellite navi­­gation to build applications that lead the way in traffic, logistics and aviation.

From Darmstadt into the world. For years, VEGA has been committed to European projects such as Galileo and the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) to transfer space technologies for application in daily life. As a spear­­head in innovation and together with our principal customers and the city of Darmstadt, our goal is to continue to build a safer world.
