UK Space Agency Corporate Plan Overview
To achieve the greatest impact in these three areas, UKSA will focus most of the UKSA’s resource behind eight delivery Priorities. They form the basis for UKSA budget and programme plans, and help UKSA to design the structure, skills, and operating model UKSA needs:
Deliver the first small satellite launch from the UK in 2022, and a sustainable commercial UK launch market by 2030.
Deliver a portfolio of activities that ensures long-term value for money access to the data we need.
Deliver a step change in the UK’s share of the fastest growing or highest-potential commercial space markets, by managing a portfolio of investments in high risk, high reward technologies and applications, supported by future-focused regulation.
Manage frequent national and international space missions, short and long term, that strengthen UK capability in space science and engineering, and that offer opportunities for the UK to lead global discovery.
Use the UK’s low Earth orbit assets to deliver transformative new capabilities, including in broadband, position, navigation and timing, and Earth observation.
Deliver capabilities to track objects in orbit and to reduce and remove debris: lead global regulation and standard-setting to make space activities more sustainable.
Increase and spread space investment and jobs, by accelerating the growth of a connected network of local space clusters.
Deliver a programme that inspires young people to pursue STEM education, attracts talent to the UK space sector, and demonstrates the benefits of space science, technology, and applications.
