For several years, SPACEBEL has been bringing their know-how and support to Italy’s ELV, VEGA Prime contractor.
The company contributed significantly to the development of the on-board software and to software engineering activities related to guidance, navigation and control of Europe’s light-weight launch vehicle.
SPACEBEL has also been in charge of the simulation software meant to check and validate the various functions of the flight software.

Another 12 VEGA launches have already been ordered until the end of 2018 at least.
