Tune in to Latest Radio SaxaVord podcast with Andrew Nairn, our Global Sales Manager

Andrew Nairn, our Global Sales Manager, recently featured on the Radio SaxaVord podcast, run by SaxaVord Spaceport that is developing a new launch site and ground station in Unst, Shetland. The launch site is designed for small rockets delivering payloads into low Earth orbit and is expected to get licensed this year.

Scotland benefits from a combination of factors that make it an ideal hub for the UK’s satellite industry. In this podcast Andrew discusses how Scotland’s supply chain is growing into a self-sufficient loop with the potential for everything needed to build, furnish and, soon, launch a satellite to be done entirely within the country’s borders. This doesn’t only include the industry’s “big names”, but smaller, highly specialised companies like Bright Ascension.
