Space Commercialisation Assessment

4CON supplies commercialisation assessments of space activities up to now dominated by the telecommunications and launchers areas. Areas such as earth observation/remote sensing (images, radar data, etc.), navigation and life and Ariane 5physical sciences research and applications have seen only limited degrees of commercialisation of their activities. In the navigation area the primary operational global system i.e. GPS, is ultimately operated for strategic military purposes by the US.

The recently initiated GALILEO satellite navigation project between ESA, the EC and industry represents a European step in the direction of European autonomy. As a result of increasing political pressure, space agencies, government ministries and even some commercial companies now need to start consultancy activities to assess the possibilities and hopefully get a foot in the door of future commercial activities in space. 4CON offers unique expertise in the space area in support of future space commercialisation.
