Astrium, Europe’s leading space technology company, has announced that the satellite telecommunications services offered by Vizada, Vizada Networks and Paradigm will be marketed under the Astrium brand name from October 2012. The products and services of the company’s London Satellite Exchange (LSE) and TDCom subsidiaries will also be renamed Astrium.
This rebranding gives Astrium Services a new, unified organisational structure and marks the final phase in the full integration of the Vizada group, which was acquired in December 2011. Now comprising four business lines (business communications, government communications, satcom systems and solutions, and geo-information Services), the company reportedly provides both telecommunications services and Earth observation satellite services.
“By bringing Vizada fully into the fold, we have opened up a new business line in commercial satellite communications (business communications) and enhanced our range of solutions and global presence in the government domain,” said Astrium Services CEO Eric Beranger. “What is more, Vizada’s customers and partners will also have the benefit of a guaranteed long-term service and access to latest-generation technologies.”
