The Satellite Applications Catapult is one of a network of UK technology and innovation companies which aim to drive economic growth through the commercialisation of research. Our aim is to support UK industry by accelerating the growth of satellite applications and to contribute to capturing a 10% share of the global space market predicted by 2030.
We are achieving this by exploiting the innovation potential in the UK industrial and academic communities, by being a focal point where small and medium enterprises, large industry and end users can work together with researchers to challenge barriers, explore and develop new ideas, and bring these to commercial reality.
How do space applications impact our everyday life? Our Projects Hub showcases our collaborative projects - past and present - that develop real-world applications for satellite technology across our focus areas.
We're currently highlighting a selection of our projects but will be building up to a full library, so keep an eye out for regular updates.
In each episode of In-Orbit, our host, Maggie Aderin-Pocock, will be in conversation with experts from across the sector, exploring the incredible and unexpected ways space technology makes a huge difference to life on earth.
Subscribe now to join us on our journey discovering how technology from space is shaping our daily lives on earth - from connected vehicles to sustainable farming, and even manufacturing in space.
Manage the development and deployment of your satellite technology with our facilities, including our satellite communications lab and near- and far-field ranges in Harwell and our tracking dish antenna system in Goonhilly, Cornwall.
You can also take advantage of our developing manufacturing facilities, housing a suite of facilities to support the design, manufacture and testing of products for deployment.
We welcome space industry organisations to connect and collaborate by hiring a desk in our shared workspace, with various packages available.
