Established since 1988, Spacebel is a Belgian Space systems and software engineering SME operating in the Space and Earth monitoring application sectors, serving space agencies, major aerospace prime companies, EU institutions and the commercial market.

Our skills include the mission definition and analysis of EO minisatellites, design, development, integration, validation of IT space systems and geospatial information systems :

  • Earth observation spacecraft and complete Earth Observation solutions including user requirements and system definition
  • On-board control and data handling software for satellites & space vehicles
  • Satellite simulation tools
  • Ground systems for control and mission centres
  • EO WEB services provisioning infrastructures
  • Geospatial information systems support and services


We are active in several domains, mainly Earth Observation, Space flight and science, but also telecoms, navigation, exploration, launchers, balloons and space situational awareness.

Our skills range from mission definition and analysis of Earth Observation minisatellites, over the design, the development, the integration, the validation of IT systems for the space industry to geospatial information systems.

We deliver Earth Observation spacecraft and provide complete Earth Observation solutions, including user requirements and system definition. Such a solution gives governments the opportunity to independently manage their territorial information.

We also deliver on board control and data handling software, simulation, control and mission centers as well as EO services provisioning infrastructures. So far, we have contributed to the success of more than 40 Space missions aimed at better understanding the Universe and the Earth.

Finally, we offer Earth observation services for forestry, water, industrial risks, atmosphere, mine exploitation and natural resources management and contribute to help decision makers world-wide in protecting and improving people’s life sphere.
