SATLANTIS is defined as one of the most important NewSpace industrial realities of Spain

Mr Raúl Blanco, Secretary of State for Industry in Spain, defines SATLANTIS as one of the most important NewSpace industrial realities of Spain.

During his visit to SATLANTIS facilities in Leioa, Mr Blanco saw the biggest Earth Observation nanosatellite ever assembled in Spain: a 12U CubeSat offering 2m resolution in 4 spectral bands, for a very reduced size and mass.

In addition, Mr Blanco had the opportunity to appreciate a selection of images taken by iSIM-170 onboard the ISS last year, a sample of the more than 65.000 very high resolution images (80cm) that positioned SATLANTIS among the best global providers of small satellites optical payloads, as noted in the Euroconsult report issued in November (Earth Observation Satellite Systems Market, 2020).

Mr Blanco affirmed: “SATLANTIS is one of the most important NewSpace industrial realities of Spain. A perfect example of how instruments like REINDUS and ENISA [Spanish funding programmes] contribute to the development of innovative projects. This is the moment for a new leap. The Ministry of Industry has been active in establishing new dialogues and supporting National leaderships, recently Next Generation EU funds.”

In this sense, Juan Tomás Hernani – CEO of SATLANTIS – explained that the company was able to gather a remarkable Consortium of different Spanish NewSpace players, in collaboration with distinguished end-users like Enagás and Nortegas, and with the participation of important Scientific entities like INTA, among others, to reinforce and consolidate the role of the NewSpace sector at National level through new funding instruments, bringing technology and industrial advancement in benefit of the Spanish as well as the international Space sector.
