Helmes became a software development partner for the European Space Agency

Estonian Software Development Company Helmes started working with the European Space Agency (ESA) to update the ESA running activities portal and add new core features to the platform. 

Helmes´ goal together with ESA is to increase the usability of the portal. The first six months of cooperation brought already some good results – relevant features to make the platform useful and usable have been released.

According to Helmes’s senior partner Tarmo Kiivit, starting cooperation with very large organizations is always time-consuming, but as soon as the first iteration is done as a result of agile software development, the client can see the advantages of a new approach.

The European Space Agency has 22 member states and their programs aim to learn more about Earth, its immediate surroundings, our solar system, and the universe as a whole. Through the activities portal updated by Helmes, companies, and universities with running contracts with ESA can provide relevant details to the public, disseminate interim results, and efficiently exchange with ESA experts during the project.

“Our cooperation with Helmes already resulted in some good progress for the portal which starts to become a core asset for running space R&D activities of ESA,” said ESA’s representative Moritz Fontaine.

Helmes´ cooperation with ESA will continue, product development with the portal will continue, and the company hopes to offer ESA long-term software development experience in other projects as well.

With ESA aims to provide an easy and modern way for its contractors to disseminate interim results of their running activities.
