Outer Space management consultants –
safety and sustainability in space

Our vision is the sustainable use of outer space, accessible to all of society. Ensuring this will bring huge social and economic value.
To enable our vision, we bring expertise in numerous areas, including:
  • Observing, tracking and identifying objects in space
  • Ability to distinguish between different objects such as active payloads, rocket bodies or debris
  • Sensor operations and characterisation techniques
  • Advanced orbital analysis
  • Space policy and law
  • Satellite launch and licensing

Mission

To empower success through opportunities in outer space (for business, academia and the public).

Why we do this

The opportunities are too big to be ignored. The consequences of not regulating safety and sustainability could be catastrophic.
We believe that our UK based experts in collaboration with counterparts globally can make a significant difference to access, success and sustainability in outer space.

Values

• Sustainability
• Openness – of opportunities and of behaviour
• Fair access
• Rule of law

Sustainability
in space

Society relies on space in ways that are mostly invisible and unacknowledged, but nonetheless vital. This reliance is only going to increase in the coming years. But space is becoming more congested, not just with naturally occurring materials but with operational and end-of-life satellites and related debris. The regulatory and policy environment is in its infancy. Data is much less comprehensive than most people realise. Little of the information that does exist is shared. We want to change these things and will collaborate across the sector to succeed.

Space Situational Awareness (SSA)
and domain awareness

If you need expertise in the identification, location and behaviour of objects in space then we can help. We can deliver these services, consult on the application of SSA to your business needs or provide training in SSA for business owners, satellite operators, government and public sector workers and others. This expertise will allow the access to and utilisation of space for all who need it.

Satellite
tracking

Do you need to track objects in space? Are you operating satellites that need to be monitored and controlled? We can provide ‘military grade’ expertise in this area, help you to choose the right approach and technology or if required, develop a custom tracking system for your needs. Society depends on space. As does the economy to some extent and security to some extent.
Space is filling up. There are more than 24,000 objects in space that are above 10cm in diameter. Knowing where they are and how to distinguish between space junk, shooting stars and potential missiles is of concern to governments, industry and academia.

Management
of outer space

Currently, little is done about maintaining or sustaining space. But demand for outer space and increasing space traffic make this a necessity.
Society depends on space. As does the economy to some extent and security to some extent.
So, something needs to be done. But by whom?
Nobody is monitoring the whole of space. Nobody sees more than a small part. Nobody owns or controls it. What laws and regulations apply?
We are working towards solving the information gap and we are campaigning to develop the rules and regulations, both within industry and within society.
