The Antares Consortium was established in January 2005.

The Consortium was originally created to promote the innovation and development of SMEs in the space sector, with C.G.S. S.p.A. (Compagnia Generale per lo Spazio - General Space Company) as the reference company, supported by an important group of companies in Campania sharing complementary and similar experience.
Antares has always focused on satisfying the design and production requirements of components and technologies for application satellites, remote sensing and telecommunications services, whilst also covering aspects of Research, Development and Industrialisation.
The associated companies – thanks to the experience and system support collaboration accumulated in the space sector, together with their equipment know-how – have been able to implement the initial developments of both the attitude control equipment and the energy subsystem as well as commercial satellite telecommunications. Through this situation, the consortium members have also acquired the technologies and resources necessary to produce a new generation of small satellites.

CGS S.p.A. Compagnia Generale per lo Spazio (General Space Company) is one of Italy's leading companies in the design and manufacture of space systems, and has been in business for over 25 years.
