Integrasys achieves Award-Winning Development with ESA support

ALUSAT was awarded ‘Teleport Technology of the Year’ by the World Teleport Association.Madrid, Spain and Paris, France, 25th June 2018 – Integrasys has worked with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop an award-winning solution, ALUSAT.

The Always Up Satellite Terminals (ALUSAT) solution improves the operation of 2-way satellite networks by enabling maintenance procedures which minimize operational costs caused by service failures. This enhances network availability and end user satisfaction.

ALUSAT technology was developed under the ARTES Core Competitiveness (CC) programme by Integrasys. The resulting product implements the key functionalities of a Network Management System for Broadband Satellite Networks. Deployed at the Networks Operation Centre (NOC) site, it automatically checks the uplink and downlink health of the terminal population at radio level, collecting additionally relevant configuration and performance information.

Domenico Mignolo, Head of Ground Segment Section, ESA, commented: “The satellite industry needs to offer innovative solutions. Through ARTES CC we support companies, offering them funding and the technical support to develop competitive Satcom solutions. We are proud to have supported ALUSAT and the industry award recognition confirms the importance of this solution.’’

ALUSAT has received two industry awards, namely the ‘Best Ground Segment Technology’ in the VSAT Stellar Awards, and ‘Teleport Technology of the Year’ in the World Teleport Association’s 2018 Teleport Awards for Excellence.

Alvaro Sanchez, General Manager, Integrasys, added: “The support from ESA has been extremely beneficial, enabling us to develop innovative solutions. Innovation is absolutely critical, especially in the current satellite environment. Integrasys has been growing drastically over recent years as our customers have begun to rely on us for specialized and reliable technology and good support. We look forward to continuing to work with ESA as we continue to drive innovation in the future.”

About the European Space Agency

The European Space Agency (ESA) provides Europe’s gateway to space.

ESA is an intergovernmental organisation, created in 1975, with the mission to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space delivers benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.

ESA has 22 Member States: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Slovenia is an Associate Member.

ESA has established formal cooperation with six Member States of the EU. Canada takes part in some ESA programmes under a Cooperation Agreement.

By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, ESA can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country. It is working in particular with the EU on implementing the Galileo and Copernicus programmes as well as with Eumetsat for the development of meteorological missions.

ESA develops the launchers, spacecraft and ground facilities needed to keep Europe at the forefront of global space activities.

Today, it develops and launches satellites for Earth observation, navigation, telecommunications and astronomy, sends probes to the far reaches of the Solar System and cooperates in the human exploration of space. ESA also has a strong applications programme developing services in Earth observation, navigation and telecommunications.
