Astrium Services Renamed Airbus Defence and Space

Astrium Services, the global innovative provider of satellite enabled solutions, has announced that it will operate with immediate effect under its new name Airbus Defence and Space, a division of Airbus Group.

The change from Astrium Services to the new Airbus Defence and Space is part of a rebranding throughout the wider EADS organization. Earlier this year, EADS became Airbus Group, with three distinct divisions: Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space, and Airbus Helicopters.

The entire Astrium Services portfolio of satellite communications and geo information services will continue under the newly created Communication, Intelligence & Security (CIS) business line of Airbus Defence and Space. CIS will also integrate secure land communications and integrated system activities of the former Cassidian organization of EADS.

As the number one MilSatCom provider in the world and the leading commercial satcom provider for maritime and enterprise customers, the company will continue to offer best-suit choice of multi-band satellite services, reliably answering communications needs of all key markets.

“The new Airbus Defence and Space set-up will allow bringing all governmental and commercial satellite communication activities together into one integrated SatCom unit, as part of CIS. The mission of new SatCom unit will be to be the provider of choice for trusted satcom-enabled solutions, with a very strong customer focus across all our key vertical markets,” commented Erik Ceuppens, newly appointed Head of the Satellite Communications program line. “We’re proud to operate under the Airbus name and its association with technology excellence.”  

The reorganization will be rolled out gradually during the course of 2014. All parts of the new division will be rebranded as Airbus Defence and Space over the coming months.
