GSTC Takeaway – Faraday Dragon rideshare satellite programme


We speak with Peter Stocken, Business Development Manager for In-Space Missions Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of BAE Systems, which has been awarded further funding from the UK Space Agency to progress its Faraday Dragon rideshare satellite programme.

The funding from Phase 2 of the UK Space Agency’s International Bilateral Fund will be used in the development of novel Asia-Pacific payload technologies that will fly on Faraday Dragon, the world’s first multi-agency Asia-Pacific regional rideshare satellite mission.

The high-profile project brings together, for the first time, established and emerging space entities from Singapore, Taiwan, the Philippines and Thailand. It opens up additional opportunities for the UK to be at the forefront of future partnerships and procurement programmes in the Asia-Pacific region.
