Space programs

For military space missions GMV provides systems and services of mission analysis, mission planning, flight dynamics, control centers and data processing. GMV has taken part in two particular Spanish-participated military space missions: for Helios II it provided the user-segment and processing systems; for SpainSat, the mission analysis system, satellite control center and flight dynamics system. GMV has also helped to develop the image processing center for EU’s satellite center.

  • Drawing on its expertise and key role in satellite navigation in general and Europe’s main navigation initiatives and programs in particular, GMV has developed inhouse technology with direct application in the defense area. Pride of place here goes to the development of a secure Galileo PRS (Public Regulated Service) receiver, proof against jamming and spoofing.
  • GMV participates actively in the European Space Agency’s Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) programs, both of which have a significant participation by Spain’s MoD.
