SSTL Spacecraft Operations Centre

In-orbit operations are performed by SSTL from its Satellite Operations Centre at Tycho House. The automated centre is linked by high-speed connections to the internet enabling the control of its spacecraft from other SSTL-equipped ground stations across the world. Whilst many SSTL customers control their own missions from SSTL supplied ground stations, our facility is always available for back-up operational support.

The Kepler Building

SSTL - The Kepler Building

SSTL cleanrooms, test facilities and laboratories are located in our technical facility, The Kepler Building, adjacent to Tycho House on the Surrey Research Park. The 3,700sqm (40,000 sqft) facility provides world class test halls providing two 125 cubic metre walk-in thermal chambers, 15,000kg and 3,200kg monorail cranes, 10,000kg and 8,000kg gantry cranes and reinforced floors, providing the greatest flexibility for integration and testing of both small and larger spacecraft.
