We are one of 10 Catapults, established to transform the UK’s capability for innovation in specific areas and to help drive future economic growth. We help organisations make use of, and benefit from, satellite technologies, and bring together multi-disciplinary teams to generate ideas and solutions in an open innovation environment.
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 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.
We unlock customer demand, opening new markets to the space sector, and driving exports, changing preconceptions and showcasing the power of space derived services.
We help companies bring their product or service to market, by identifying and supporting the break-down of barriers to entry, such as regulation or accessibility.
We connect businesses of all sizes with the resources they need to grow, opening new routes to market and attracting investment.
