Company Profile

The Satellite Applications Catapult is one of a network of UK technology and innovation companies which aim to drive economic growth through the commercialisation of research. Our aim is to support UK industry by accelerating the growth of satellite applications and to contribute to capturing a 10% share of the global space market predicted by 2030.

We are achieving this by exploiting the innovation potential in the UK industrial and academic communities, by being a focal point where small and medium enterprises, large industry and end users can work together with researchers to challenge barriers, explore and develop new ideas, and bring these to commercial reality.

With the emergence of dual-use within the UK space strategy published in 2021, our aims are three-fold:

  • To raise awareness of the potential of satellite applications to meet current and future defence and security requirements for the UK 
  • To showcase and demonstrate the quality, capability and range of space technology existing within the UK and support UK MOD and others to exploit this national capability 
  • To support British industry and academia in engaging with the UK defence and security sector with a view to potential future export opportunity
