Accelerate Innovation in Space Programs

New and Veteran Space Companies Innovate to Gain Efficiency

Significant investment from new players spurred new growth in the commercialization of space. New navigation satellite networks and services, nations with little experience reaching into space (e.g.,  Japan, China, and India) as well as private entrants like Virgin Galactic, SpaceX, and Blue Origin are all after a piece of the market. These players and others investing heavily in space will be the future builders of rockets and new satellite constellations. Their exploration will further human kind’s eventual colonization of Mars and will make space travel available to everyone in the not so far future.

To support these ambitions and record growth, new technology  allows companies to reach space objectives faster and cheaper. 3D printing, re-usable space launch vehicles, and lower cost manufacturing techniques lowering the cost of entry and allow new competitors to enter the market and allow veteran companies to improve margins. As a consequence, a profound change is occurring in the relationship between Institutions, space organizations and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
