who we are
Argotec is an Italian aerospace engineering company whose activities mainly concern the production of microsatellites for deep space and the development of innovative solutions in order to improve and to support the life and the comfort of space explorers. The company activities follow the “all in-house concept” including design, development, integration, qualification and operation services.
The company name “Argotec” was inspired by the Argonauts legend. In Greek mythology, Argo was the ship on which Jason and 50 heroes, called the Argonauts, sailed to Colchis (modern day Georgia) to retrieve the Golden Fleece.
The spirit of adventure of the Argonauts is the motivation and the guideline for our activities.
