Reliance success in UK Space Agency competition

Reliance success in UK Space Agency competition

Reliance has recently been successful in securing R&D funding from the UK Space Agency via the National Space Technology Programme (NSTP). The UK Space Agency is the Government Executive Agency responsible for the UK’s civil space programme, ensuring the UK retains and grows a strategic capability in space-based systems, technologies, science and applications. 

The Agency plays a key role in encouraging research, raising the profile of the space industry and inspiring the next generation of UK scientists and engineers. With an annual contribution to the UK economy of £9.1 billion, the Government recognises the importance of the UK space industry and has a clear strategy for future global growth.

To help build the capabilities and skills in the UK space industry to support this strategy, the UK Space Agency provides funding opportunities through a range of programmes. One such programme, the NSTP, now in its third stage of competition funding, was launched in September 2016. The programme invited applicants to submit proposals for potential space technology R&D projects that aligned to the National Space Technology Strategy and the related technology roadmaps covering five main themes: telecommunications; sensing; position, navigation and timing; exploration and robotics; and access to space.

In December 2016 the UK Space Agency advised Reliance their application had been successful and the project commenced in early February 2017. Reliance business manager for space Kathryn Hullah comments: “We were delighted to hear we had been successful in securing funding in the NSTP3 competition. The project will play an important part in the development of our motor gearbox capability for the space industry and, running in parallel with our ongoing space projects, will help us evolve our product development strategy for this exciting sector.”
