Some of us came from outer space…

CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales) is the government agency responsible for shaping and implementing France’s space policy in Europe. Its task is to invent the space systems of the future, bring space technologies to maturity and guarantee France’s independent access to space. CNES is a pivotal player in Europe’s space programme, and a major source of initiatives and proposals that aim to maintain France and Europe’s competitive edge.


CLS (Collecte de Localisation Satellite) was formed in 1986 as a subsidiary of CNES and IFREMER. It is a commercial entity tasked with developing and distributing applications of satellite-based location technologies implemented by CNES.

Novacom Services is a subsidiary of CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites), the worldwide operator of the Argos system, and TELESPAZIO, a major player in the European space industry.

For 25 years, Argos has been used to locate small satellite transmitters throughout the world, handling the tracking of animals, drifting buoys and flotillas of fishing boats. Given its mission, the Argos system is used for specific applications, all related to the study and protection of the environment. In order to allow the world of industry to take advantage of its 25 years of expertise in geolocation, CLS set up its subsidiary, Novacom Services, in 2002. It also offers CLS the opportunity to propose a new range of services. These are based on the concept of the Novacom platform. This is a computer centre that allows our customers to access their data.

And some of us were always on the road


TIP Trailer Services is one of Europe’s leading equipment services providers. TIP Trailer Services specialise in leasing and rental of trailers, tankers and other equipment. Their lease and rentals can be combined with a range of smart services including maintenance, damage repair, fleet management and Trailermatics telematics, providing the customers with even more value. Without the use of telematics and technology you are not able to accurately and timely monitor the condition of your transport equipment. For example, having no reliable means to monitor tyre pressure will result in increased fuel consumption and costly breakdown incidents.


Where to start with telematics for trailers

If you are thinking to upgrade your company and increase your profit, come and talk to our technical staff. They all come from trailer operations and know what it is like to manage a fleet of trailers. They will show you how you can follow your trailer and read the data that is sent to you. We train your staff, so they get all the benefits from the system. Meanwhile we help you to set-up a schedule to install the terminal on your trailers. The terminal is the hardware unit connected to the EBS. Now you are ready to power up and choose from different packages for enabling fleet management, cold chain monitoring, security enhancement, carrier management, tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and truck id.
