The SGP, overseen by the Space Sector Council, provides a clear and accountable governance structure which ensures all aspects of the sector are represented and play an active role in the delivery of the Space sector’s strategy for growth.

The industry is at a critical stage of development as we are on the cusp of an industrial revolution in Space. Not only are satellites becoming exponentially more capable every month, but the new technologies for Space launch are finally upon us, so the UK has the opportunity to become a powerhouse for both global manufacturing and Space launch from the new Space ports in the UK.
