Minister of State Pierre Dartout visits Orbital Solutions Monaco
At the invitation of Francesco Bongiovanni, founder and CEO of Orbital Solutions Monaco (OSM), Minister of State Pierre Dartout visited the premises of the start-up, which has been operating in the Principality for nearly four years.
Specialising in the NewSpace* sector, the company, located in the heart of the Fontvieille industrial district, designs nanosatellites and plans their launch into low Earth orbit.
The first NewSpace laboratory in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, OSM is participating in the “democratisation” of the use of space and in the development of innovative applications in a range of sectors, such as environmental studies, Earth observation, etc.
The Monegasque company is a leader in EdTech and has developed the first aerospace curriculum in conjunction with lower secondary school pupils at Collège Charles III and Collège FANB. It is also working with upper secondary school pupils in Switzerland, who helped to assemble a nanosatellite which is scheduled to be launched in April.
