British Aerospace Space Systems

British Aerospace Space Systems Ltd was a subsidiary of British Aerospace.

In 1994 it was sold to Matra Marconi Space, which acquired Ferranti Satcomms at the same time. British Aerospace regained an interest in the company when it merged with GEC's Marconi Electronic Systems to form BAE Systems. In 2000, Matra Marconi was merged with the space division of DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG (DASA) to form Astrium. BAE sold its 25% stake in June 2003 and the company became EADS Astrium.

Projects which BAe was involved in include the earliest Eutelsat satellites.
