In 2001 Alfonso was one of the founders of Deimos Space and in 2005 he took the position of VP for BD in Deimos Imaging to set that company up and acquire the Deimos 1 satellite from SSTL. In 2009 he engaged as Corporate Development Director at Deimos Space.

In 2015 Alfonso initiated and then collaborated in the sale of Deimos Imaging to UrtheCast of Canada.
