Who We Are

The Satellite Applications Catapult is at the heart of the satellite services revolution, driving take-up of space technology and applications to shape, and sustain, the world of tomorrow. We’re driven by how our actions help the organisations we work with, both large and small, bring new services to market. By connecting industry and academia we get new research off the ground and into the market more quickly.

UK Space Ecosystem

The UK Space Ecosystem brand was developed as a result of the collaboration between the Satellite Applications Catapult and the UK Space Agency. At the heart of our work is a vision to create a robust and interconnected UK Space Ecosystem that not only enables innovation and growth in the space sector but also encourages collaboration, technological advancement, and economic prosperity.

We are on a mission to work collaboratively across the ecosystem to deliver UK strategic priorities outlined in the National Space Strategy for the benefit of society.

Enabling Your Innovation


Our Facilities

Our facilities aim to provide businesses with the innovation boost they would be unlikely to find elsewhere; this includes state-of-the-art equipment and access to our technical and business experts for advice.


Business Support

We support organisations of all sizes to accelerate their development by providing a range of services, tailored to meet their specific needs, from expert advice, to growth opportunities and strategic networks.


Space Enterprise Community Platform

The Space Enterprise Community is a new online platform designed to provide a collaborative, user friendly and centralised platform for the UK space sector. Designed to help connect a wide variety of organisations and individuals working in the sector across all UK regions, the Space Enterprise Community is the result of extensive research, scoping and development by the Catapult’s Regional Growth team (supported by the UKSA), in answer to challenges posed by colleagues across the country.
