Affordable

We smartly combine engineering processes and knowledge gained over several decades by the space industry and space agencies like ESA with innovative NewSpace approaches in order to offer our customers affordable, quick-to-market and reliable solutions.

Our partners and customers are international agencies like ESA and the European Commission, national Governments and Institutions and a variety of commercial customers.

Triton-X, our next generation multi-mission microsatellite designed to enable affordable regional and global LEO constellations, is the flagship of this new approach.
