Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 19 luglio 2020

Lefa Space Systems and Leaf Cardiff-based aerospace company Lefa Space Systems has entered into an exciting agreement with Leaf Space, an Italian provider of ground segment services to satellite operators and launchers, to bring cutting edge ground station services to UK Government and private sector clients.Smallspark and Leaf Space plan for a partnership to deliver joint bids for projects with the UK Government and other commercial operators in the UK, with the aim of becoming the primary contractor for services related to supporting the UK governments ambitions with OneWeb, the proposed 650-satellite constellation which will provide worldwide satellite internet and broadband services to people across the globe.This major proposed collaboration changes the landscape of UK aerospace, with both companies working together to provide UK-based services for OneWeb, including the development of new, low-cost, rapidly deployable ground stations, expansion of ground segment coverage to new geographies as well as operating & maintaining OneWeb’s existing ground station networks.At a time when the economy has contracted, and many businesses are facing difficult challenges, such positive news will provide a major boost for the UK Space sector.If successful, the bid will kickstart rapid development across the space value chain, creating new skilled jobs, providing massive opportunities for investment across the sector, with new sites proposed across the country, and exploring the potential of manufacturing opportunities in the UK.
