Space industry project collaboration and introduction services

We also assist with the planning and execution of mergers and acquisitions.

We have many years experience in satellite and launch insurance and the development and placement of insurance products specifically designed for the launch and satellite market.

We can analyse your risk management procedures and your insurance cover and recommend informed changes where necessary. We can take the uncertainty out of dealing with insurance brokers, and can help to select the best broker or best insurance product for your space business. If you are bringing a new launch vehicle, new satellite or new space product onto the market, we can assist in the design and presentation of briefings for the insurance market to ensure that you get the best rates from the best insurers.

Space segment consultation

Large scale projects, such as telecommunication or internet based services, sometimes require a space segment to the business to ensure best delivery and a competitive advantage. This may involve something as simple as identifying the best satellite operator to provide transponders, to something as complex as installing a ground station, or building a satellite and launching it successfully, with TT & C considerations and gateway ground-stations included in the project.
