National Space Strategy for Wales

Today’s announcement by the Welsh Government of a Space Strategy for Wales is a very welcome and long-awaited focus on plans to stimulate space businesses in Wales, right across the board, from innovative launch and orbital services, to analysing and applying data downloaded from satellites.

Wales has great traditions, skills and experience in engineering, aerospace and maritime activities, backed up by training and leading-edge research in Wales’ world-class universities.  Today’s announcement will hopefully lead to the creation of many high-value, skilled jobs in design, manufacturing, and software, enabling Wales to become a sustainable space partner in the market.

Black Arrow Space Technologies is looking forward to playing a pivotal role in the Welsh Space Industry, with the sea-launch fleet based in Port Talbot and an expectation of working closely with engineering, aerospace, avionics and software suppliers across Wales as we work towards our first launch in 2024.  We also look forward to working with the Welsh Government to achieve this as we begin setting up our operations over the course of this year.
