You're likely looking for a company called "ISTAR" which is part of
the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Companies (EADS) Group. The
headquarters of ISTAR are located in Sophia, Antipolis which is within
 20 minutes of the Nice International Airport.

Note that a phonetic pronunciation of ISTAR in any of the Romance
languages, such as French, Spanish, and Italian, would be "ee-star"
leading most native English speakers to transcribe the company as "E
Star." There are a number of companies worldwide called "E Star" or
"E-Star" but none of them have any affiliation with EADS nor are
located in the vicinity of Nice.

Locations of their offices and maps can be found at:

With the headquarters in France, they also have branches in the United
States and Singapore.
