  2. 2. Space Mission UK ​is an exciting programme of entrepreneurs’ missions for the UK’s leading space and satellite application startups. These missions, supported by Innovate UK and Department for International Trade saw two groups visit the USA in 2015 This first mission which visited Utah, LA and Silicon Valley from​ 8-­14 August 2015, was specifically designed for the UK’s leading entrepreneurs in the space & nanosatellite applications sector, to interact with world-leading investors and potential collaborators. It visited leading companies such as Virgin Galactic and Lockheed Martin, as well as NASA. The second mission, which took place from 15-20 November 2015, focused on the wider sector including satellite applications and attended SpaceCom Expo in Houston. Space Mission 3, travelling to California from 5-11 November 2016, will have a strong focus on investment, and is specifically designed for the UK’s leading entrepreneurs working in New Space verticals. The missions are designed to help the companies build relationships with the leading players in the US space and satellite sector including government, corporates, investors, startups and scientists through meetings, company visits, networking events and briefings.

  3. 3. Satellite applications embrace almost every area of life, delivering valuable services for business, government and the public alike. Every day, people watch TV, catch the latest weather forecasts, drive to new destinations and meet in different places. From satellite TV to smartphone maps, all are powered by space technology. But how could food supply, the energy sector or the ways our cities are run benefit from the same technology? That’s where Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, comes in. The UK has a wide range of businesses and talent leading this charge and we provide them with funding and connections to get those ideas off the drawing board and into the marketplace. Those businesses have also set up an extensive support network of their own around the Satellite Applications Catapult, the government backed technology and innovation facility dedicated to the exploitation of satellite derived data. Investors often view the space sector in terms of science, not economic returns. So Innovate UK and its Satellite Applications Catapult seek to show investors the significant investment opportunities available. We also work closely with the innovators, helping them focus on how end users can benefit from their technologies, and create new profitable markets for their ideas. Commerce: New Space Verticals 3

  5. 5. Archangel Aerospace The team at Archangel Aerospace have worked on HAPS since 2002 and, since the company was founded in 2010, they have conducted more HAPS operations than anyone else. They are pivoting from supplying consulting expertise to supplying a large scale solution. Only 10% of the data generated by earth observation today can be transmitted to the ground. This will drop to <1% with new sensors and imaging satellites. The data transmission demands are growing exponentially and current supply is limited by the physics of radios and the available spectrum. Laser communications are limited by cloud. Archangel Aerospace will fly laser communications in the stratosphere, above the weather, to 10x the data downloadable. They have developed a prototype laser terminal and tested it on low altitude drones this year. With offices located at the Harwell campus and Oxford they have access to the clean rooms, manufacturing and prototyping facilities required to execute the project and our employees have years of experience in the aerospace industry (aircraft, spacecraft and ground segment).
