For Luxembourg, the diversification of its economy is an everyday challenge. The space sector is one of the priority sectors that Luxembourg has constantly promoted since its entry into the space business more than 25 years ago. The efforts to put in place the necessary measures to support the continued strengthening of its space sector clearly demonstrate the longlasting commitment of the Government.

This catalogue of Luxembourg Space Capabilities showcases the capabilities of our national actors and serves as an open invitation to potential international partners to identify and establish successful research and business relationships with these actors. Since its first edition, this directory has revealed the constant expansion and consolidation of the Luxembourg space landscape. Many of the players presented here are not only known beyond the borders of the Grand Duchy, but their capabilities are now recognised by the international space community. Luxembourg will continue deploying the means to expand and consolidate this sector in order to attract new players and develop new activities.

Luxembourg Space Capabilities

Luxembourg joined the space adventure in 1985 through the creation of the Société Européenne des Satellites (SES), a landmark for satellite telecommunications and now a major player in this sector.

This initiative has not only led to the development and growth of SES, but also to the development of an entire space industry in Luxembourg.

The second step in positioning the country in the space sector was Luxembourg’s accession to the European Space Agency (ESA).
This membership, preceded by a cooperation agreement on the telecommunications programme of the Agency (ARTES), became effective on 30 June 2005, with Luxembourg becoming the 17th Member State of ESA.

Besides the development of opportunities combined with the technological capabilities of national actors, this membership has confirmed the commitment of the Luxembourg government to promote the Grand Duchy as a hub for innovative projects in advanced technologies.
