Licensing Tool Development- UKSA

The UK Space Agency has announced £2.7 million for 13 early-stage technology projects across England, Scotland and Wales to support the growing satellite launch sector.

UK Launch Services Limited secured £26,000 of this funding to develop a licensing tool to streamline the process of applying for spaceflight licences from the UK Civil Aviation Authority under the 2021 Space Industry Regulations (SIR).

The project will drastically reduce the time and costs associated with preparing and maintaining a licence application for any organisation wishing to apply for a license. This will be a useful tool for organisations wishing to operate launch systems from UK spaceports including satellite operators wishing to launch or operate satellites from the UK.

UKLSL already offer services to lead or assist spaceflight business’ SIR licence applications, providing an end-to-end technical advisory service to de-risk and streamline the licencing process for the client and help navigate them through the application.

Congratulation to the other grant recipients: Rocket Engineering, Discover Space UK, Space Prime, European Astrotech, SmallSpark Space Systems, Lúnasa, Magdrive, Shetland Space Centre, HyImpulse, Gravitilab Aerospace Service Ltd, AltaRange Ltd and TISICS Metal Composites.
