Company: Satellite Applications Catapult
Location: Harwell, Oxford (Design Team)
The Satellite Applications Catapult is an independent innovation and technology company, created to foster growth across the economy through the exploitation of space. 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.
Based in Harwell, near Didcot, the Catapult was established in May 2013 by Innovate UK as one of a network of centres to accelerate the take-up of emerging technologies and drive economic growth. We are a not-for-profit research organisation which is registered as a private company limited by guarantee and controlled by its Board.
We are already changing the world through the use of space technologies in areas as diverse as commercial fishing, disaster relief and city planning.
Our goal (and yours too) is to identify global user needs and apply space technologies in interesting ways to satisfy those needs. Application is our middle name.
