Argotec is an Italian space company that has made significant strides in the aerospace industry. Recently, the company announced plans for a multimillion-dollar investment to establish its operations in the United States. A new manufacturing facility, spanning 20,000 sq. ft., is set to be built in Largo, Maryland. This facility is expected to create approximately 100 jobs and will serve as Argotec’s hub to design, develop, build, test, and operate their satellites on American soil.
Argotec’s first product to be manufactured in this new facility will be a custom Universal Space Transponder-Lite. This advanced space communications project is a collaboration with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The aim is to improve radio frequency for satellites in deep space and facilitate a planetary service relay system.
Argotec has its own Mission Control Centre directly connected with NASA control centers. Here, Argotec engineers can control and support the operations done onboard the International Space Station in real time.
