Aurora's core business activity is the provision of engineers and scientists as on-site support. The European Space Agency (ESA) is our main client.


Aurora, formed in 1995, is firmly established within the Space industry as a support company providing a high level of service. Since 1 January 2010 Aurora is owned by LSE Space which complements and increases our ability to provide solutions.

As a group we provide a broad level of support and increase staff deployment possibilities, while still maintaining a streamlined management. AURORA successfully supplies engineering and scientific support services to ESTEC & ESAC, whereas LSE is a leading supplier of Operations Engineering services to ESOC and GSOC. Together we employ over one hundred professional engineers, scientists, and high level administration staff providing solutions and services for design, development and operations of spacecraft, payload and ground segments.

We are a multinational team with more than 25 different nationalities; all experience the adventure of working and living in an international environment. The exposure to different cultural values and different societies means that the awareness and tolerance within the team is enhanced. Becoming culturally intelligent is a key requirement for the success of our business in a professional as well as social context.
