Spacecraft propulsion: £2 million for collaborative R&D
Businesses can win a share of £2 million for innovation in spacecraft propulsion systems.
Innovate UK and the UK Space Agency have made £2 million available to support business and technical innovation in spacecraft propulsion systems.
Propulsion systems account for a large part of a satellite but are not generally seen to add commercial value to a mission. Innovation in propulsion, however, can save tens of millions of pounds in launch costs.
Your business could win support for collaborative R&D into innovative propulsion systems that add value to a spacecraft.
- the competition opens on 19 January 2015
- we expect projects to last up to 1 year and to range in size from total costs of £250,000 to £500,000
- a briefing day for potential applicants will be held at the Satellite Applications Catapult, Harwell, on 21 January 2015
