Terma to Acquire Part of Atos’ Space Business

Our Bureau - : Sep 27, 2022 - : 3:36 am

Terma will acquire the Atos satellite ground testing business, covering Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) for satellites. The project will expand Terma’s position as a leading European Space business.

“This is an important, strategical acquisition for Terma,” said Jes Munk Hansen, CEO at Terma. “Space activities play a vital role in the under-standing of our climate and environment and in defense and security matters. We already have a leading niche within select space technologies – including electronics, software solutions and space engineering services – and thanks to this acquisition, we are adding new, important competencies and offerings to foster the EGSE business,”

The future acquisition covers three main applications: Payload Testing, Radio Frequency (RF) Sub-system and Power Testing. Combined with Terma’s Central Check-out System, CCS5, it provides a comprehensive EGSE system used for functional and performance testing of a space system, ensuring the spacecraft is working perfectly.

“The Atos EGSE activities are fully complementary with our own EGSE activities. As an example, today, both Terma and Atos are providing EGSE solutions to European Space Agency (ESA) missions.,” Hansen added.

Highly skilled space experts from Atos located in Austria, Romania, and in the Czech Republic will join Terma’s teams. Terma will use this opportunity to set up companies in these three countries, hereby enhancing its European footprint. All business activities will continue under the Terma brand.

“Our space business is complementary to Terma’s, making them the right partner to acquire our EGSE business and accelerate its development as Atos has decided to strategically refocus its port-folio. In the broader context of its own transformation, Atos will retain its successful satellite monitor-ing and space data analysis activities, as part of its mission critical systems portfolio,” said Diane Galbe, Senior Executive Vice President of Atos.
