Open Cosmos

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
