SPRINT is supporting the launch of the new ‘Size & Health of the UK Space Industry’ survey, the primary source of evidence that the UK Government uses to track growth in the sector, identify challenges and target funding.
Whether you build and launch satellites, conduct scientific research or operations in space, or leverage satellite capabilities as part of a commercial solution for terrestrial users, you are encouraged to participate in the survey.
Graham Turnock, Chief Executive of UK Space Agency said: “We want the UK to lead the new space age. The Government is committed to helping enable a strong, secure and innovative space sector that will achieve this goal. And evidence from the sector will determine the actions we take to support and enable the sector.
“Through the recently established National Space Council, emerging National Space Strategy and the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, the Government is seeking to create the conditions for a strong, secure and innovative space sector. Actions to shape these conditions will be guided by evidence.
“The Size & Health of the UK Space Industry survey is the primary source of evidence that we use to track growth in the sector, identify constraints, and make the case for funding. We run this survey every two years and we have selected know.space to carry out the 2020 study on our behalf. I would encourage you to participate in the 2020 survey.”
Mindful of the challenges facing industry this year caused by the COVID pandemic, the 2020 survey represents a ‘light touch’ update of this long-running series. Even approximate information or a partial response would still be useful. All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence, and only aggregate anonymised information will be published.
You can participate in the Size & Health of the UK Space Industry 2020 survey online at www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/SizeAndHealth2020. The survey will remain open until the end of the year.
If you have any queries about the survey, please contact Greg Sadlier at know.space or Alex Leudar at the UK Space Agency.
