Disruptive Innovation for Space Centre

The Disruptive Innovation for Space Centre (DISC) provides access to equipment and expertise to help UK companies innovate, and accelerate the development of new products and services.

DISC provides end-to-end design, modelling, test and production equipment in a collaborative engineering environment, to help companies 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.

The facilities are open to industry and academia and provide equipment that is frequently out-of-reach to small or medium sized companies.

Access to DISC is charged at competitive rates and teams can use the facilities for as little as half a day, or for the entire project duration, basing themselves at DISC. DISC coordinates and collaborates with the Harwell Campus including RAL Space and across the UK through the wider Catapult Network. The UK has some of the best universities in the world. To access the UK research base, the DISC team will broker partnerships between industrial organisations and academic teams for use of the facilities.

If you have an idea or want to know more about how DISC could help you, and find out how this new facility can potentially support your innovation and growth, please email: disc@sa.catapult.org.uk
