The Satellite Applications Catapult
The Satellite Applications Catapult is one of a network of UK technology and innovation companies which aim to drive economic growth through the commercialisation of research. Their 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 predicted by 2030.
They 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.
RAL Space carries out an exciting range of world-class space research and technology development. They have significant involvement in over 200 space missions and are at the forefront of UK Space Research.
Working alongside the UK Space Agency, RAL Space undertake world-leading space research and technology development. They provide space test and ground-based facilities, design and build instruments, analyse and process data and operate S- and X-band ground-station facilities, as well as lead conceptual studies for future missions. They also work with space and ground-based groups around the world.
