In-Space Missions are world class experts who design, build and operate physical and digital space missions for global customers from our UK site.


InSpace Rideshare

Following the success of Faraday-1 Phoenix, In-Space Missions has developed the InSpace Rideshare Service (formally known as the Faraday Service). With this service customers can access the performance of a small satellite and deliver their payloads to orbit at a fraction of the cost of traditional flight services – including dedicated Cubesat missions. InSpace Rideshare includes a full range of technical and regulatory services which enable customers to focus on payload development and service design.  It is particularly suitable for:

  • Precursor missions
  • Early service roll-out
  • Service and technology demonstration missions
  • Flight qualification of new technology

InSpace Dedicated

InSpace Dedicated is a 100kg+ small satellite platform offering flexible payload accommodation up to 60kg.

The platform design includes a TByte of data storage and variety of payload data interfaces which can be scaled to accommodate multiple payloads. The mission can be augmented with an on-orbit processing solution along with a GEO ISL to support low latency applications.

Suitable for a range of payloads including:

    • Earth observation
    • ISR and SSA/SDA
    • RF sensing and communications
