We design, build and operate physical and digital space missions, providing a valuable service to global customers keen to get their technology on orbit quickly.


In-Space Missions is using its NSIP programme to substantially extend its current Space as a Service, Faraday, capabilities. The expanded capability, Faraday+, will provide a Software Defined Satellite service which will allow customers to upload their application from the ground or buy capacity without the need to launch their own space hardware. Short-circuiting lengthy satellite build schedules lasting years and costing millions of pounds, new services using Faraday+ will be rolled out in weeks and at a fraction of traditional costs. Faraday+ will support multiple customers at the same time and underpin a significant acceleration of innovation across the whole of the UK space sector.
BAE Systems announced Sept 2021 that it will acquire In-Space Missions, a company that recently won a contract to build a British military satellite.
In-Space Missions won a contract valued at 9.5 million pounds ($13.2 million) from the Ministry of Defence and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory Aug. 9 to build an experimental smallsat called Titania. The satellite, scheduled for launch in 2023, will test space-to-ground laser communications.
