Luxembourg has a thriving space industry, currently comprised of 30 companies with an average turnover of approximately 2 Billion euros. Approximately 700 employees work in the aerospace sector in Luxembourg, in research and development, manufacturing and operation.

SES, the world’s leading medias and telecommunications group, was established in Luxembourg in 1985 to provide the pioneering satellite-based communication services for which it has since become renowned throughout Europe and around the world. Luxembourg’s business development policy resulted in a significant concentration of dynamic space-related companies in the country.

Many highly advanced technology companies now operate in the Luxembourg space sector, such as EURO-COMPOSITES, GRADEL, HITEC Luxembourg and LuxSpace to name but a few.

The industry today encompasses more than 25 companies and 2 public research organisations (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the University of Luxembourg), covering various domains that include:

  • The space segment, manufacturing of satellite and instrument structures (Euro-Composites), system integration of micro-satellites (LuxSpace), electric propulsion for satellites
  • The ground segment, ground stations development (SES and HITEC Luxembourg), mechanical and electrical ground support equipment (GRADEL and SES), communication networks (POST and Telindus)
  • The service segment, teleport services (SES and POST), satellite broadband services (SES), risk management services (LIST/ERIN, SES, HITEC Luxembourg), AIS services (LuxSpace)
