Niparo is at the forefront for UK Space Legislation and Regulations.
The UK has recently rekindled its space ambitions with the aim to make the UK Space sector a key part of the economy. At the heart of this push is the desire for a domestic launch capability and new legislation and regulations have recently entered into force with this motivation.
Niparo recently wrote a dissertation giving an overview and update to how the UKs new legislation and regulations take into account international law as well as sustainability issues.
We offer broad suggestions on ways forward for the UK space sector noting the space industry can often suffer from ‘navel gazing’ and ’greenwashing.’
The Data SlipStream is the key facility that allows integration of Earth Observation (EO) datasets and a sandpit for innovation supported by active research with commercial innovations connections.
Niparo, along with the University of Edinburgh and Resilience Constellation are responsible for building the infrastructure and developing a crucial UK academic, commercial and UKSA asset.
Glasgow builds more satellites than any other European city. Edinburgh is on course to become the space data capital of Europe. Outside the Central Belt, the Scottish Spaceports are ready for horizontal and vertical launch vehicles. Niparo is based in city center Edinburgh and is an end-to-end supporter of the Scottish Space Sector.
