UK Launcher and Spaceport Supply Chain Analysis

Posted on: 07/02/2018

KTN and In-Space Missions are working with the UK Space Agency’s Satellite Launch Programme to understand the launch supply chain in the UK.

The aim of this piece of work to ensure that UK small satellite launch and sub-orbital spaceflight services have a sustainable and complete supply chain by developing knowledge of the UK industrial readiness and competitiveness of all aspects of launch.

This supply chain analysis also relates to the recently announced £50 million programme from the Industrial Strategy. This programme aims to develop new technologies, infrastructure and services, to establish the UK as a world leading destination for space launch.

We are developing a technology list which is viewable here.

If you have a capability or technology of interest and would like it included in our analysis, please contact Andy Bennett at KTN by the 16th February.
