Telespazio company (Rome), subsidiary of the Group Finmeccanica (Milan) / Thales (Toulouse), specialized in the observation of the ground by satellite and navigation, gained the contract of manufacture of a spy satellite ordered by the Turkish Ministry of Defense (MOD).

In spite of the reserves of the Turkish government to entrust the project to a company with French participation, because adoption by the National Assembly of the bill penalizing of the Armenian Genocide negation (2006), the development of the Gokturk satellite returns in Telespazio and Thales Aliena Space. According to officials from Turkish Ministry, Telespazio was preferred at Thales because of the Turkish resentment on the decisions of the French Parliament.
