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.
The Satellite Applications Catapult is a unique technology and innovation company, boosting UK productivity by helping organisations harness the power of satellite based services. It is driven by how its actions help the organisations it works with, both large and small, bring new services to market. By connecting industry and academia, the Catapult gets new research off the ground and into the market more quickly.
