Each of the small satellites will be built as part of a new three year project titled xSPANCION by the satellite manufacturer to create an innovative satellite constellation that businesses can use for a wide range of applications, including satellite communications, Earth Observation and remote sensing.

This constellation can then be used by businesses to fulfil their space data needs with a one stop shop, providing data from a single point of contact while cutting out the need to carry out any space activity themselves.

The project will see the company team up with the University of Strathclyde, the Satellite Applications Catapult, Bright Ascension and D Orbit UK to design and launch the 10 satellites.
