UKspace is the trade association of the British space industry and has been its leading voice for over 30 years.

It promotes the interests of industry with: the UK government, parliament and national and international stakeholders.

We represent a diverse membership across the industry, and work in conjunction with our members to achieve the best business framework to promote growth.

Together with our partnersADS and techUK, we are dedicated to representing the interests of our Members and supporting them in growing and developing their businesses.

We work alongside the UK Space AgencyInnovate UK, the Satellite Applications Catapult, the Satellite Finance Network and governmental organisations such as Ofcom, Department for International Trade and others.

The industry is at a critical stage of development as we are on the cusp of an industrial revolution in space. Not only are satellites becoming exponentially more capable every month, but the new technologies for space launch are finally upon us, so the UK has the opportunity to become a powerhouse for both global manufacturing and space launch from the new space ports in the UK.

At UKspace we are determined to forge a partnership with Government to achieve this and continue growing the industry and its contribution to Britain’s place in the global economy.
