Corporate report: UK Space Facilities Review 2017

The UK Space Sector supports some £250 billion of the UK’s GDP by providing space-enabled data and applications that are widely used in other sectors of the economy to improve efficiency, increase the tools available for businesses and consumers in critical activities and, in some cases, to introduce all-new ways of working. This activity is supported by space manufacturing companies that are smaller in scale but are crucial in producing the infrastructure we need for these services and applications. This report is the first national survey we have undertaken to ensure that we are all aware of the facilities we have in the UK to support the design, development and testing of space hardware and to identify where we need to invest further to meet the new demands of emerging markets.
