History

Over the first ten years, Newtec was only involved in research and development on behalf of the European Space Agency. Today, Newtec still enjoys an excellent relationship with the ESA and the Federal Science Policy Department (BELSPO).

Our ambitious R&D reinvestment policy has led to Newtec being regarded as a front-runner in a range of innovative, satellite communication technologies that are now considered to be industry standards (such as DVB, DVB-S2, DVB RCS, iSatTV and CPM).
