Opportunities with Thales Alenia Space France

Following engagement between our ADS Toulouse team and the Thales Alenia Space (TAS) France procurement team, we are delighted to inform you that we will be creating a UK space supplier capability brochure for the TAS team based on some of the requirements which they have shared with us.

Company submissions will be aggregated by ADS into a UK capability brochure to be presented to the TAS senior procurement team in France in Q1 2022. This follows a discussion in October 2021 where Thales Alenia Space shared with ADS Toulouse their need to better understand the UK space supply chain.

TAS have informed us that they are interested in learning more about companies who are able to offer but not limited to:

•             Optic space solutions

•             Propulsion Systems

•             Telecom satellites

TAS have stated that they are interested in companies who already have a Space heritage or companies that are developing innovative space sector capabilities. Please note that whilst no specific programme has been identified, this opportunity will not target ESA related programmes.  In order to be featured in the brochure, please complete the attached one-page submission template taking care to:

•             Focus on specifically what you would offer Thales Alenia Space

•             Provide quantitative evidence (performance, turnover)

•             Mention relevant certifications and programmes

•             Stay concise

Your submission will only be seen by ADS staff and Thales Alenia Space. Our aim is to provide feedback on submissions in early 2022 with the intention to short-list suppliers of interest for a more direct engagement with TAS, as determined by quality of submissions. In the interim, our team based in Toulouse will continue to engage with the TAS senior team.

Please complete and return your submission template (link below) by e-mail to Bhavin Vyas bhavin.vyas@adsgroup.org.uk and ensure you copy Marie-Margaux Marie-Margaux.Honikman@ads-toulouse.com by CoB Monday 17th January 2022.
