Luxembourg’s government has inked a deal with Thales Alenia Space to create a “digital centre of excellence” in the grand duchy.
“This new center, Thales Alenia Space in Luxembourg, will focus on the development of highly innovative digital solutions for space telecommunications and observation products,” the economy ministry and Luxembourg Space Agency said in a press release on Tuesday.
The digital centre will develop experimental new products with customers and serve as “an anchor for local and regional business development,” the firm’s chief said.
Thales Alenia Space is a joint venture between France’s Thales and Italy’s Leonardo, two aerospace and defense groups.
