Launch UK – Sutherland
Updated: Nov 30, 2022
UKLSL was part of a consortium to win a UK government grant funding for the development of a launch service based on the Orbex Prime Launch system, operating from the Space Hub Sutherland (SHS) spaceport located on the A' Mhòine peninsula.
UK Launch Services Ltd contributed to the winning bid definition and was contracted to undertake a number of roles within the project. These roles included initial safety site sizing of the spaceport, review of spaceport design against requirements, planning application review and oversight, liaison with the regulatory and subsequent preparation of the licence applications, as well as the initial development of key supply chain and support services such as meteorology services.
We also acted in a system integration role, generating and maintaining the launch service level requirements technical, commercial and regulatory, as well as the overall integrated programme plan.
