OFFICINA STELLARE SpA is awarded the contract for the supply of the ground Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) station, destined to complete the already existing geodetics infrastructure at the Yebes Observatory in Spain.

It is a particularly innovative ground station, designed for a very versatile use, also different from that specifically related to laser measurements, such as laser communications.

This contract is part of the important scientific project YDALGO, promoted National Center of Geographic Information, and led by the Spanish company TTI supported by the German DiGOS specialized in the development of turnkey SLR stations.

A particularly important achievement for Officina Stellare in view of future opportunities in this peculiar field of application which is fundamental for the development of the Space Economy in the coming years.
