  3. 3. Space Mission 2015 will focus on nanosatellites, cubesats and their applications. These types of satellite are increasingly important and broaden the commercial opportunity presented by space. The UK has a wide range of start­ups leading this charge. ● A cubesat is a miniaturised satellite, typically in the order of a kilogramme, that can be produced using commercial off­the­ shelf components and launched at a fraction of the cost of a traditional satellite. ● Their low cost allows large numbers of them to be brought into operation, opening up new opportunities for satellite applications including near­real time imaging. ● Originally introduced for space research, placing satellites within reach of universities rather than governments, cubesats are increasingly being considered for mainstream commercial applications alongside their larger cousins. ● Cubesats are a standardised subset of nanosatellites; whereas nanosatellites are a generic class of small satellites with between 1 and 10kg mass, cubesats are a specific 1­litre volume, 10cm cube with typical mass of 1kg – the standardisation of the cubesat allows for a standard way of launching them. ● The main reason for miniaturizing satellites is to reduce the cost of deployment and are often suitable for launch in multiples, using the excess capacity of larger launch vehicles. ● The CubeSat design specifically minimises risk to the rest of the launch vehicle and payloads. 4 Space & satellite apps sector
  4. 4. 5 Alba Orbital Ltd (PocketQube Shop) Alba Orbital Ltd (PocketQube Shop) based in Glasgow, Scotland, wants to get more people building and launching their own satellites. The company provides a hub for PocketQube satellites by offering a one­stop­shop with the largest selection of parts available anywhere. It aims to provide for small budget organizations and amateurs who wish to be part of the “DIY space race”. The satellite costs about the same price as a car with a starting price of £20,000. These minuscule satellites can carry programmes such as tracking of birds or measuring Earth’s magnetic field. To launch the satellites, these can be hitched onto another rocket where there is space for an extra satellite. Alba Orbital Ltd serves as a point of contact between PocketQube builders and aerospace companies. So far, 4 PocketQube satellites have been launched in 2013, from Russia on a Dnepr­1 rocket. One of them is Wren. Operated by a German start­up named STAKIDO, this miniaturized satellite weighting 0.25 kg is equipped with a camera system to photograph the Earth, the Sun and deep space objects. The next launch is scheduled for the second semester of 2016 with the rocket UniSat­7. It is operated by G.A.U.S.S. who is currently looking for other CubeSats to include in the satellite. Funding was accessed first through the crowd funding website Kickstarter on which it exceeded its $5,000 target in a few hours. In October 2014, it won the SMART award by Scottish Enterprise with a £84,000 funding which contributed towards developing a first commercially available Electrical Power System (EPS) for PocketQube class Satellites. The start­up is expanding the product line to cover the full range of off­the­shelf parts necessary to build nanosats. CNN named the company in its ‘Going Global in 2015: 10 start­ ups to watch’ list. It was also named in the ’20 innovations for 2015’ list by the Guardian. www.pocketqubeshop.com Mission company profiles:
  5. 5. Arralis Technologies Arralis designs and manufactures the world’s best performing high frequency semiconductor chips up to and beyond ultra­ fast 110GHz. These are being used in the next generation of aerospace and security products where high speed and reliability is vital. Arralis’ technology enables ultra­high speed and high resolution radar. This is essential in many different applications. Just one example of its importance is its use on­board low flying helicopters, which frequently need to be able to see and avoid buildings, power lines and weather systems such as dust storms. Arralis’ semiconductor chips enable high speed and high resolution radar to spot these, before they become a risk to the helicopter. Arralis has developed world­ leading expertise in radio frequency, micro and millimetre­ wave technology. Arralis’ products, which are the ultimate in precision and innovation, are used in both global and space environments where accuracy and reliability are critical. Arralis’ semiconductor chips ensure better data transmission speeds to and from satellites than any other provider in the world. In just one example of its work, Arralis developed a 94GHz radar system for the European Space Agency. There are many threats to the success of a space mission; launching and landing the spacecraft carry the highest rate of failure during the mission. This radar system is a particularly innovative technology in that it is capable of recognising small objects such as rocks. The radar identifies zones of danger where landing the spacecraft would most likely fail or damage the structure. Similarly, the precision of this instrument is of vital importance when in space because of the amount of debris orbiting the planet. www.arralis.com 6
  6. 6. 7 Bird.i Bird.i aims to deliver Earth Observation (EO) data to the mass market; making Earth observation ‘social’. Maps and Earth Observation imagery have increasing importance to our daily lives and global economy. There is an incredible growth in the quantity of Earth imagery which enables highly accurate observation of large­scale events. This has useful applications in all walks of life: from those attending festivals to those who are looking for high resolution images for humanitarian reasons. However, often mapping and Earth Observation imagery are prohibitively expensive and beyond the reach of the everyday person. Although there are mapping services that provide information, often, these satellite images are outdated and not ‘live’. Imagine taking a real time selfie from space. Bird.i enables this. Traditional data provision models have relied on disseminating low ­volume, high cost images to high value customers. In this model, only a fraction of the wider audience of individuals and businesses can derive value from this information. Bird.i aims to make fresh and quality observations available to a wide range of consumers. This will exploit captive markets, such as online travel or estate agencies, and the wider wealth of online, real time georeferenced data. Earth Observation is also a powerful tool to provide high­ revisit coverage of specific regions. Data about our planet gathered from space finds wide ranges of applications, such as air pollution measurements, natural disaster predictions and consequences as well as the pace of deforestation. It can measure the entirety of human impact on Earth. The business model relies on determining locations of high demand, acquiring relevant imagery from multiple data sources and delivering the results directly to customers. The aim is to acquire and sell only the pixels that matter, maximising their value by selling them multiple times. www.hibirdi.com
  7. 7. Bright Ascension Bright Ascension started in 2011 to offer a fresh and innovative approach to engineering research and development in the space industry and other high technology areas. Bright Ascension offers on­board and ground software for satellite missions that is affordable and reliable. Drawing upon the founder’s experience, the company is able to offer off­the­shelf products which can be tailored to the needs of a particular mission. The start­up also provides Mission control software, the interface between on the ground operators and the satellite. Bright Ascension is different from other companies in the satellite software space in that it is highly agile: it provides a software product that allows its customers to build upon an established software framework and then customise as they need. This saves time and money and is putting the power of nanosatellites and CubeSats in the hands of people and organisations that would not have been able to launch their own satellite ten years ago. This is opening up exciting new scientific, commercial and educational applications to universities, research institutions and innovative Space start­ups. Bright Ascension also works with the Outernet non­profit organisation, which is helping millions of people in the developing world receive information through satellites. This information ranges from weather forecasts to the price of commodities. It is particularly helpful for farmers in rural and developing regions. Bright Ascension developed the on board software for UKube­1, a nanosatellite launched on the 8th of July 2014, as part of the UK CubeSat programme. This CubeSat, which is about the size of a loaf of bread, includes six different experiments such as science instruments, amateur radio, technology demonstration and outreach. One of the experiments was a school engagement programme where students were able to connect with the satellite as it passed overhead. www.brightascension.com 8
  8. 8. 9 Gyana Gyana is a space technology company. The company uses machine learning to make Big Data analysis available to everyone, during their everyday lives. It has created a broad range of technologies that use deep mathematical analysis models and machine learning techniques combined with space technologies to enable real time big data to help users assess the world around them. The machine learning techniques are absolutely cutting edge and one of their kind in the world. Gyana uses its own in-house mathematical research to create these unique solutions. For example, this means it allows users to get a sense of what an area is like and learns from their mood whether it will suit them. For instance, if a user was in the mood to go out in London it would tell them how busy Covent Garden is compared with other areas of London. It would also provide insight on transport infrastructure, crime rates and other interesting trends. Gyana has developed a unique system that helps sonify large sets of data. The company conducted psychological research that shows people respond better to sounds and imagery, rather than text. Therefore uniquely, the app communicates with its user through the use of sounds and imagery to communicate analysis. Founded by Joyeeta Das and Mark Gilbert, the team counts three post doctorates and four Masters students from Oxford University among its founding staff. The team consists of some of the brightest mathematical minds at Oxford University. Gyana was born in 2014 with an Oxford University summer accelerator program. Joyeeta Das is an active and successful entrepreneur, currently a core committee member of Oxford Business Network where she acts as Head of Business Plan Feasibility. This NGO gathers scientists, artists, politicians, dancers, engineers to create projects with an innovative approach to social causes. She was featured by The Times as “Young Achievers in India”. She also received several awards for her work with Cisco, such as outstanding performance or Best Organisation Culture Impact. www.gyaanaa.com
  9. 9. Mars Space Ltd Mars Space Ltd (MSL) is a SME formed in 2007 and based in Southampton. The company’s main area of expertise lies in space electric propulsion. Space propulsion is the technology behind the movement of spacecraft. Space electric propulsion came in to compensate the physical limitations of chemical space propulsion. MSL was born as a spinoff company from the University of Southampton (UoS). The entire staff of MSL holds a doctorate and is composed mostly of current and former UoS staff members/students. At present Mars Space Ltd has a turnover of about £400,000 and a total of 5 full time employees. MSL has over 100 years of experience in the field of space propulsion, through the cumulated work of its directors and employees. Since its incorporation MSL has been involved in several R&D activities carrying out the design, manufacture, testing, modelling and qualification of several electric propulsion devices covering power levels ranging from 2W to 50kW. MSL has acquired its own premises in 2011 and has now a fully equipped propulsion laboratory with all the necessary diagnostic to directly verify the performance of various propulsion technologies. The company notably developed the first pulsed plasma thruster for Cubesat application, PPTCUP. www.mars­space.co.uk 10
  10. 10. 11 Oxford Space Systems Oxford Space Systems is set on becoming the leading supplier of deployable space structures globally. The future for space missions relies on the capacity of industry players to develop space structures which can be efficiently packaged in the launch vehicle and deploy once in­orbit. Development collaboration contracts are under way with Europe’s largest satellite builders as well as emerging players in the developing market of smaller and cheaper satellites: micro and cube satellites. Oxford Space Systems designs innovative structures that are lighter and cheaper. This is achieved by combining new and traditional materials. Notably, they use energy composite materials. The great advantage of this type of material is the capacity to save energy which reduces the weight of the structure. Lighter structures are critical in dealing with storage limitations of a launch vehicle. Composite materials are also corrosion and fatigue resistant as well as more cost effective than traditional materials. Oxford Space Systems currently work in three principle areas of development: deployable panels, flexible composite boom systems and large deployable antennas. Founded by experienced entrepreneur & CEO, Mike Lawton, the quickly growing Oxford Space Systems team contains a diverse range of world­class expertise in the fields of aerospace, mechanical, electrical, and thermal engineering for the space environment. Drawing on conventional wisdom as well fresh thinking, the OSS team is at the forefront of developments in the new space age. Based at the Harwell Space Cluster, OSS has excellent access to the expertise & facilities of RAL Space, the European Space Agency, the Science and Technology Facilities Council and the Satellite Applications Catapult. OSS is backed private equity and enjoys the support of Innovate UK, ESA and the UK Space Agency. www.oxfordspacesystems.com
  11. 11. Printech Circuit Laboratories Printech Circuit Laboratories is a manufacturer of specialist printed circuit boards. The company prides itself in being able to manufacture anything that is different. Its products are used in all market sectors, but especially space applications. Two recent innovations the company has developed are ‘bump’ selective plating to 250μm and the manufacture of ‘formed’ antennas/ filters that can be intimately placed around a product. Printech Circuit Laboratories not only processes established circuit board materials, but also composites, foams and LCP shaped products. Printech Circuit Laboratories have participated to the European Space Agency (ESA) Gaia mission. The purpose of this mission is to compile a 3D catalogue of astronomical objects in our Galaxy, the Milky Way. The mapping of the Galaxy contributes to a deeper understanding of its constitution and evolution as well as potentially uncovering unknown astronomical objects like new planets or constellations. Data gathered from the Gaia satellite will constitute the most accurate catalogue of stars ever achieved. One of Printech Circuit Laboratories partners, E2V, was contracted to build CDD Detectors for the Gaia spaceship. CDD detectors are a highly accurate form of camera that captivate UV, visible and near infra light. Printech Circuit Laboratories provided specialist flexible circuits which contributed to the precision and power of the digital camera. The flexibility was key in compressing the camera design to fit in a smaller satellite. www.pcbs4space.com 12
  12. 12. 13 Scot Sat Ltd Scot Sat’s journey to develop, build, market and sell technologically advanced, affordable, mobile satellite communication equipment began three years ago. The company approach revolved around new plastic design and manufacturing techniques applied to the satellite industry, advancing the current technology used in maritime and land mobile satellite communications. Uniquely, Scot Sat is able to provide ultra­high speed communication equipment at a fraction of the cost of traditional suppliers. This is primarily because it has embraced the 3­D printing revolution. Many of its products are printed using 3­D printers with highly durable materials at a fraction of the price. This cost saving it passes on to its customers. With a novel approach to materials design, Scot Sat aims to deliver cost effective designs that would create a step shift in equipment pricing which could open up satellite broadband services to an area of these markets currently not served. The company is made up of individuals who previously built up a maritime satellite communications business successfully over seven years and sold it to a major satellite communications company (FTSE Listed). With that depth of knowledge, Scot Sat brings that experience to the remote equipment design, determined to break ceilings on maritime and land mobile satellite communications equipment. With the advent of new High Throughput Ku and KaBand satellites, the price of capacity has been falling but not so for the necessary support equipment. This makes the average packaged cost too high for many customers. Scot Sat’s new equipment will be priced to allow those who previously could not afford ultra­fast mobile communications to enjoy the benefits of such technology. www.scotsat.com
