Open Cosmos provides simple and affordable space missions to help companies solve the world’s biggest challenges. We enable companies across a wide range of industries to use space applications and technologies as a tool by removing three main space access barriers: time-consuming paperwork, expensive technology, and overall costs. By rethinking the way a satellite is being developed, procured, manufactured and operated, we allow our customers to benefit from significant cost and time reduction while ensuring reliability across all mission elements. This is driven by our Mass-Customisation Methodology which covers all aspects of a nanosatellite space mission from spacecraft design to testing, from procurement to launch, and from mission definition to operations and orbital data delivery. We also provide services and enabling tools to empower rapid payload development, allowing businesses, research institutions and organizations from across industries to develop their technologies. Founded in July 2015 by Rafael Jordà-Siquier, Open Cosmos employs 42+ people of more than 10 nationalities and is based in the Harwell Campus near Oxford
One hundred times more powerful than conventional consumer telescopes, Unistellar’s eVscope is a revolutionary device that accumulates light to reveal galaxies, nebulae, comets, and much more, in unparalleled crisp and colorful details.

The Centre Spatial Universitaire de Toulouse (CSUT) was created on June 28, 2016, during the Toulouse Space Show, in response to training issues and to coordinate collective research activities.
Taking the form of a scientific interest group (GIS), the centre brings together research organizations (ONERA, LAAS-CNRS and IRAP) and renowned higher education institutions (ISAE-SUPAERO, Université Paul Sabatier, INSA Toulouse, ENAC Toulouse and INP Toulouse).
This grouping is an asset for the center and provides access to the experience and skills of its members.The CSUT is driven by ISAE-SUPAERO and Professor Benedicte Escudier.
The purpose of this collaboration between these different organizations is to enable students (from various backgrounds) and young graduates (national or international) to develop their skills and acquire experience in the space field. With this in mind, the center brings together several projects, using the nanosatellite sector as a testing ground and training support. Two years after its creation, the CSUT has a multidisciplinary team composed of students, research professors and
engineers, working together to achieve the objectives of the centre
