Pride of place on the UK Space Command stand was a lifesize and extremely lifelike 1:1 scale model of the Tyche ISR satellite currently in build at SSTL and due for launch in 2024. (Pictured above with SSTL's Andy Baird & Darren Jones.)
Proving to be a hit with all attendee's, the model briefly moved outside to enjoy joint billing with a slightly more imposing Typhoon Aircraft in the backdrop of the official opening ceremony. Minister for Defence Procurement James Cartlidge officiated at the event and was on fine ribbon cutting form. (Pictured below.. satellite model far right.)
DSEI is a prime opportunity to showcase our small satellite capability to potential users from the defence world and a golden opportunity to support our defence partner UK Space Command.
