Operations & Ground Segment Engineer

Toulouse, France

Full-Time

About the Company

We are a deeptech Newspace company. Following 3 years of artificial intelligence development at Stanford and Singapore, the team has now settled in Toulouse in 2020 to start its In-Orbit Servicing activities.

Our Mission is to offer Satellites Operators a competitive way of managing their fleet, from Inspection & Surveillance to Life Extension Services. Space Infrastructure is growing and so the need for maintaining the assets in orbits. We believe that Space Sustainability can be enhanced now by providing on orbit services and later, by supporting debris removal actions with proven technologies.

Our First 2 satellites are scheduled for launch in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023 in GEO Orbit enabling a steady revenue stream for the next stage development of our technologies.
