Reinventing space operations

Space has changed. Operations have not.

A NewSpace Age is emerging. The launcher and space segments have already been disrupted. Unfortunately, the innovation in the ground segment and operations is
lagging behind, and this proves to be the single biggest challenge in our breakthrough towards a future new space economy.

Your one-stop-shop for sustainable in-space mobility

As it currently stands, the rate at which we launch satellites into orbit around the Earth (specifically low Earth orbits otherwise known as LEOs) is unsustainable, but it doesn’t have to be. The space industry has a bright future if companies set aside their own immediate self-interests and work together to embed sustainability in their practices.
