The Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) and the Satellite Applications Catapult are partnering in a move that highlights an exciting future for the UK space industry. With the Government aiming to capture 10% of the sector by 2030, this new partnership marks an important development in establishing a national space supply chain for advanced manufacturing.
While the UK space sector currently generates around £16.5bn per annum, providing 47,000 jobs across 1293 different organisations, significant growth will be required to meet the Government’s ambitious target. Notably, there is a real need for the development of a comprehensive and advanced supply chain specialising in high-performance composites and additive manufacturing. The collaboration between DMC and the Catapult intends to kick-start these ambitions.
