Antwerp Space N.V.
Antwerp Space is one of Belgium’s oldest and most experienced space companies. Our roots go back to 1962, when we were set up as a division within the Alcatel Bell group. We became an autonomous subsidiary in the 90's.
Lots of names, we’ve been called
In 2005, ‘Alcatel Bell Space’ became ‘Alcatel Alenia Space Antwerp’, before getting the name ‘Thales Alenia Space Antwerp’ in 2007. These name changes show the evolution of our shareholding. And the many consolidations that took place in the European space sector.
The OHB SE group acquired our company in July 2010 and so we got our current name ‘Antwerp Space’.
Satellite communications, that’s our business
Today, Antwerp Space is a fast-growing company focusing on satellite communications. Our current activities include:
Satellite Communication Subsystems

Telecom Payload Technology

The company employs about 70 people. Most of them are highly skilled engineers and technicians from all over the world, the majority of which hold an engineering degree, with strong expertise in the areas of digital signal processing, hardware and software design and in the management and technical lead of complex projects.
