The Lario Space Centre, operational since 1977, is located at the far North of Lake Como, at the town of Gera Lario. It covers a total area of 80,000 square metres, of which 5,000 are covered. The Centre has 40 transceiver and 20 receiver antennas, and employs around 50 people.

The Lario Space Centre supplies highly specialized services, providing users with continuous and qualified assistance guaranteed by the experience and know-how accrued in forty years of activity.

The first activities carried out in the Lario Centre were the Ku-band propagation experiments through the Italian satellite Sirio 1 and the creation of analogue telephony and television links with the Americas and the countries of the Middle and Far East via the Intelsat satellites.
