About the European Centre for Space Applications and Telecommunications

The European Centre for Space Applications and Telecommunications (ECSAT) is ESA’s new facility in the United Kingdom. It is based at the Harwell Science, Innovation and Business Campus in Oxfordshire.

ECSAT is the most recent addition to ESA’s operational sites across Europe. First opened in 2009, ECSAT will be developed by ESA following agreements reached between the UK and ESA in November 2012. ECSAT will support activities related to telecommunications, integrated applications, climate change, technology and science.

Around 100 ESA employees will be based in Harwell by 2015. A dedicated building will be erected on the campus to host the ESA teams from 2015. Its design uses advanced concepts on sustainability and the use of natural energy sources. It will be certified according to the UK ‘Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method’ (BREEAM).

ECSAT’s current home is the Atlas building, which has been refurbished to accommodate a team of about 60 people. This building also hosts Business Incubation initiatives, operated by the UK Science and Technologies Facility Council, one of which is in cooperation with ESA. A Concurrent Design Facility and a robotics test laboratory are both operated by RAL Space, a leading UK player in the space domain and traditional partner in ESA’s science and Earth observation programmes.
