Dassault Systèmes : Leading The New Space Race

Top 10 Space Tech Solution Companies - 2021

Space exploration is by far one of the biggest challenges that the human race has embarked upon. When put into an environment we have limited knowledge about, technology remains our best hope. To this extent, space tech companies are relentlessly working to deliver technologies that can come to our aid in this quest. The space industry is utilizing every emerging technology available, including 5G, advanced satellite systems, 3D printing, big data, and quantum technology, to upgrade and scale activity and operations in space. Thanks to these technologies, services like weather forecasting, remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS) navigation, satellite television, and long-distance communications systems are made possible.

With the onset of the new decade, the space tech industry has also turned to newer technologies like smart propulsion, space robotics, and space traffic management to advance space exploration missions. The increasing investments in the sector allow space tech companies to develop technologies that simplify and enhance movement, operations, and communications between Earth and space. From CubeSats and NanoSats to reusable launch vehicles, space tech has come a long way in reducing launch costs. For organizations looking to partner with space tech companies for their missions, there remain a plethora of options to choose from.
