Description

This Harwell space industry event is a chance to find out about how the extensive space facilities and expertise available at RAL Space can help support your business, now and in the future. You will have the chance to meet with one of our team through a set of bookable short 1-2-1 meetings, and tour some of the open access facilities during the day.

If you are a space company currently located at Harwell, or are thinking of being part of the growing cluster, then this event will be of relevance to you.

RAL Space is the UK’s National Laboratory for Space, a world-renowned institute and the largest space organisation at the growing Harwell space cluster.

RAL Space has an impressive suite of open-access capabilities and facilities available for use by both academia and industry. In 2021/22 the National Satellite Test Facility will further expand the current suite of co-located space test and integration facilities, providing a single place for environmental testing of satellites from a 1U cubesat up to 7.5 tonne satellites.
