Tapping into Scotland’s growing satellite manufacturing sector

Contact our team


Led by the Lightweight Manufacturing Centre, Stratellite is tapping into Scotland’s growing satellite manufacturing sector and is seeing the development of an easy-to-reconfigure exploratory production line.

Focusing on an innovative reconfigurable, modular and scalable production system, the project aims to automate the precision production processes necessary for the manufacture of large satellites.

The team is developing the technology in a way that ensures it will be easily adoptable by smaller businesses across a range of sectors who want to become more agile and explore new products, in new markets, without a large upfront investment.
