“So you’ve made it to space… now what?” Scaling up your space business for success
Tuesday 26 April, 2022 // 04:00PM CET
New Space players are looking to launch and operate dedicated constellations for collecting new data intelligence from space. With Spire’s constellation of 120+ multi-payload satellites, this webinar provides insight into their journey, the expertise they have gained in constellation operations, the challenges faced and finally learnings on how Spire can help new space players achieve scale through executing their in-orbit demonstration/ validation. Spire’s customer, NorthStar, will also be sharing how the two organisations partnered to build their constellation for LEO orbit to meet the demand for Space Situational Awareness in the space environment.
- How to set up for success in a space-based business with the right partner?
- Why new space companies should think constellations and scale for their LEO satellites
- Why it is important to be set up for constellation scale from precursor satellite
- How can you plan for scale while still building for In-Orbit Validation

Accelerating Space Exploration Through International Collaboration
On 4th October 1957, the first artificial satellite was launched in to orbit by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). The satellite, named Sputnik, was a landmark mission which brought space exploration to public attention. Taking place during the time of the Cold War, this became part of what is know as the ‘space race’ between the United States and the USSR.
Keeping Space Sustainable: An Update
As space technology continues to develop at pace, we are seeing larger numbers of satellites being launched than ever before. Used for communication, navigation, earth observation and scientific development (to name but a few), these satellites provide some incredible services and insights required for the everyday functioning of our society.
Ensuring Market Resilience for European Space in the Wake of the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the global economy on a massive scale, costing a combined estimate of between $16- $35USD trillion by the year 2025. With the majority of the world’s major economies going in to a recession during this time, the hit to many industries was unprecedented.

Analysing the Growing Role of SMEs and Start-ups in Commercial, Civil and National Security Space
Over the past few months, Space Tech Expo have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the owners of SMEs and start-ups across the USA and Europe to understand how they are working with commercial, civil and national security organisations, and how they have seen the market change from their perspective.
As we move forward together as an industry, we share with you our findings.
