EADS Space Seals MoU With Vitrociset
EADS Space signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Italian organization Vitrociset for the study of future initiatives and collaborations in the aerospace sector. Areas where the two organizations will try and cooperate include navigation, launcher activities and telecommunications.
One of the first examples of this cooperation is the incorporation of Vitrociset into the iNavSat consortium. Initially formed by Inmarsat Ventures Ltd, EADS Space and Thales Group, iNavSat is one of the two last bidders to become the Galileo concessionaire for deploying the Galileo satellite constellation and for operating all subsequent services.
