Press release - Noordwijk, 22 June 2015

•Phase C/D of the European Ground Systems Infrastructure programme (EGS-CC) worth € 18.5 Million
•Official Contract Signature for stage two of Phase C/D to take place on 22 June 2015 at ESTEC

Telespazio VEGA Deutschland, a subsidiary of Telespazio (a Finmeccanica/Thales company), has been awarded the contract to continue the development of the European Ground Systems – Common Core (EGS-CC). This contract reconfirms the company as prime contractor, having been selected to lead the initial stage in December 2014.

The full value of Phase C/D of the programme, awarded by the European Space Agency (ESA), is € 18.5 Million. The contract will be carried out by a consortium of 19 companies from ten European countries, under the leadership of Telespazio VEGA Deutschland. Telespazio VEGA Deutschland has already led phase B of the programme. Within phase B, the software requirements engineering and architectural design were completed. Within phase C/D, the future uniform monitoring & control infrastructure, covering all mission types and mission phases, will be developed and integrated.

A common infrastructure for monitoring and control systems brings numerous benefits. In the future, thanks to the EGS-CC framework, synergies between mission phases can be maximised, industry will be able to standardise their approaches, and development times will reduce. The common and stable infrastructure provided will be easily tailored to specific missions, sharing the sustainment and maintenance across organisations. The logical consequences are reduced costs and lower risks for all stakeholders – and eventually increased return on investment for all the ESA member states contributing to the European space programmes.
