Disruptive Innovation for Space Capability

The Disruptive Innovation for Space Capability (DISC) houses a range of facilities to support the design, manufacture and testing of products for deployment into complex environments. DISC provides access to equipment and expertise to help you innovate and accelerate the development of new products and services.

With end-to-end design, modelling, testing and production equipment in a collaborative engineering environment, we can help you develop new solutions for large-scale market opportunities. DISC will enable teams to take an R&D project from proof of concept through to a full-sized prototype, manufactured at quality levels and scales sufficient to undertake end-customer validation.

With competitive rates available from as short as half a day to as long as a project requires, the facilities are open to industry and academia and provide equipment that is frequently out-of-reach to small or medium-sized companies.


At the end of 2019 we open an expasion to DISC, a new 1150 sqm facility, which provides access to equipment and expertise to help UK companies accelerate the development of new products and services. It includes flexible laboratory and design areas, clean rooms, a vibration table, a thermal oven, and a wide range of other high-tech equipment.
