When Reliability is Key

Ground based systems make an enormous contribution to reliability – whether it is a control system to ensure safe operations can be conducted in an efficient manner or using the right tools to test your space system before launch.

Optimize the Efficiency and Cost of Your Spacecraft Operation or Testing Program

At Terma, we believe that new technologies should be implemented when they make an important difference. This is one way in which we optimize your operations and testing costs.

With Terma, you can test your spacecraft on the ground before launch and use the same system to control it after launch. Historically, these have been two different “empires”. But at the end of the day, the command and control you need is rather similar between the two. Now, you can exploit the efficiency, quality improvements and cost savings that this can bring.


Mission-proven and renowned testing capabilities ensure that your system works flawlessly, no matter how harsh the environment of your satellite.

We are the expert in incorporating newer technologies into both existing products and new products while maintaining quality and robustness.

Within satellites, we are known for our short and reliable delivery times, ensuring you can plan your operations or testing program with confidence.

Proven by Time — Entrepreneurial at Heart

The Terma organization encourages innovation through an entrepreneurial attitude that is coupled with the advantages of being a mature and well-established company. The result is that we are able to keep our products up to date offering our customers state-of-the-art solutions in what is a very commercial market.

At Terma, we can quickly develop new features using new technologies in response to a fast-moving marketplace. We are continually investing in, evolving and fine-tuning our products.

Products and systems sold and manufactured by Terma are built on more than 30 years of experience in the domain.

We build the products and systems in-house and can also provide your company with highly qualified people for both training and operating the systems.

We believe in long-term relationships with our customers and aim to continually supply quality at a reasonable price, backed up by dedicated responsiveness and service.

Choose an Adaptable, Future-ready System

Within the fast-moving field of space, the ability to rapidly react to change is fundamental. The ability of our products to adapt to new requirements, standards and technologies ensures you the best possible performance at all times.

Our products and systems are designed for easy deployment for new missions. Our tools are built according to industry and de-facto standards and are interoperable with other systems.

Do Not Compromise on Quality — Choose a Value-for-Money Solution

Finding the perfect balance between price and a solution that meets all your needs long-term is not an easy task.

The space and ground segment comprises many functions and features. In order to ensure that you get the functions and facilities you need, it is important to have a modern solution from a supplier who have built their products on many years of experience.

The Terma value-for-money solutions are based our strong product approach.

Trusted Supplier with a Proven Track Record of Successful On-time Projects

At Terma, we know the importance of on-time delivery. We possess a remarkable track record and an experienced group of engineers.

We are able to deliver in very short schedules, whether your need is:

  • Turn-key hardware/software solutions.
  • Full software solutions
  • Software licenses

This responsiveness is achieved through adherence to standards and a strong product approach.
