SSTL developed and delivered the first operational payload for Europe's satellite-supported navigation programme as part of its GIOVE-A mission launched in 2005.

Since then SSTL has supplied 22 navigation payloads for the deployment phase of Europe's satellite-supported navigation  system, Galileo, and is now manufacturing a further 12 payloads that will form the heart of the navigation system. SSTL’s payload solution is based on European sourced atomic clocks, signal generators, high power TWTAs and Antennas.

Our GNSS receivers are highly regarded for quality and robustness and are flying on many missions, including TechDemoSat-1 and NASA's CYGNSS constellation.

We pioneered the commercial small satellite industry and established a market in low earth orbit; now we’re going to do the same beyond Earth's orbit.

We are developing the infrastructure that will enable organisations to achieve their exploration ambitions: transportation, communication, navigation; mission tasking, data capture and data return.

We welcome opportunities for collaboration, co-development and cooperation, to leverage international capabilities and expertise to develop cost-effective, high-value missions, services and applications.
