Noosphere Ventures, two years after providing a lifeline investment in small launcher company Firefly, is gearing up to make another space investment, this time in the small-satellite manufacturing sector.
The changes follow a 10-month European Space Agency review that concluded launching up to 300 kilograms to a 500-kilometer orbit on a single rocket would be better than 150 kilograms as originally envisioned.
Exploring How Innovation is Revolutionising Access to Space
As space-based satellite systems continue to act as a key enabler for terrestrial operations, the need to access and exploit constellations effectively remains critical for intern…
Investment bankers increasingly believe that the satellite industry is fundamentally shifting from large geostationary spacecraft to constellations of low Earth orbit smallsats, forcing existing companies to respond while creating opportunities for investors.
French space startup Exotrail has secured $4.1 million in funding to develop its electric thruster technology and software for smallsats.
ÅAC Clyde, the company being formed by Sweden’s ÅAC Microtec and Scotland’s Clyde Space, says its primary business is shifting from satellite subsystems to constellations as smallsat operators begin fielding more satellites.
