GUIDE TO THE UK SATELLITE INDUSTRY
We live in a satellite-enabled age. The satellites flying above us are not abstract agents of science, but part of the critical life support system we all depend on, every day. Satellites provide us with insight, collect and distribute vast quantities of data, and give us a detailed picture of what is really happening in our world.
With the capability to deliver live imagery in awe-inspiring detail, higher bandwidth communication and increased positioning accuracy, we are entering a new, dynamic phase in how satellites affect our lives and are spurring the development of new enterprises, technologies and whole new business sectors across the planet. This site aims to illustrate how you can benefit from satellites and be part of a £400bn global opportunity.
HOW SATELLITES BENEFIT THE UK
There is a global market for satellite data and the UK is at the forefront of providing satellite solutions to the world. UK Government and industry are committed to growing a £40 billion UK industry by 2030.
UK Growth will be achieved through a mix of space infrastructure and space-enabled services, with the aim to grow downstream revenues.
With long-standing expertise in satellite manufacture and data applications, combined with an entrepreneurial outlook, the UK is well placed to take advantage of the changing landscape ahead.
