BARSC Welcomes SSTL as a New Corporate Member

The British Association of Remote Sensing Companies(BARSC), the body that promotes the British earth observation industry throughout home markets and across the world, is delighted to announce that world-leading small satellite manufacturer and pioneers of the small-sat revolution, SSTL Ltd. has joined as a new Corporate Member.

Since the first launch in 1981, SSTL has seen over fifty of their satellites launched into space, nineteen of which continue to be in operation today. Remarkably, the company currently has twenty-three satellites in manufacture, for customers all over the world.

SSTL has always been an innovator within the industry and this continues with the latest news that the company confirmed the successful commissioning of the RemoveDEBRIS mission which, as the name suggest is designed to tackle the issue of space junk.

Rachel Bird, Application Business Line Manager for SSTL explained why her company has decided to join BARSC and the opportunities she sees from being part of this community; “We have been impressed with the excellent job that BARSC is doing in promoting the activities of the UK’s remote sensing sector. The association’s membership includes world-leading organisations working in downstream applications and is exactly the community SSTL should be regularly interacting and building partnerships with in order to support our small satellite mission opportunities.”

In response, Chairman of BARSC, Alistair Maclenan commented; “BARSC exists to promote the remarkable capabilities of our member companies and to provide a vital network where knowledge can be shared, and opportunities uncovered. Having SSTL within our ranks, a company that has been wildly successful throughout the world’s earth observation marketplaces, will be a fantastic boost for both the Association and all the other members.”
