Space

Space is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK, with the ambition to capture 10% of the world market by 2030. Currently, the UK manufactures over 20% of the satellites in orbit and has established a path towards launching satellites from UK soil by 2021.

The satellite communications sector includes ground terminals and has recently invested in the megaconstellation company OneWeb. The deep expertise in using satellite data to support the energy, infrastructure, finance and agri-food industries is complemented by a growing community looking to exploit the research conducted in microgravity for commercial applications.

KTN have deep knowledge of the UK space sector, and have produced the Space and Satellite Applications Landscape Map. We bring together a range of different stakeholders from industry, academia and government to enable consortia building and provide clear direction to people who want to innovate the space sector.
