Northern Space and Security Limited (NorSS) has announced that it’s planning to expand over the coming 12 months.

Chronicle Live reported on the Northumberland aerospace firm’s fortunes, which are looking up thanks to its specialisms of space awareness and surveillance.

The company is intending to bid for projects with both the UK and European Space agencies this year, as well as other contracts within the defence sector.

Speaking to the news provider, founder of the firm Ralph Dinsley commented: “Expertise in the area of space surveillance and tracking is limited. A growing recognition of the need for space traffic management means NorSS will be able to exploit an emerging concept.”

With increased demand for knowledge and skills in this area, NorSS is hoping to be able to grow its business and the size of its team.

It recently joined a space incubation programme being run by Business Durham in collaboration with the UK Space Agency. The aim of this scheme is to provide specialist businesses like NorSS with access to support across areas like marketing, financial management, business growth and IP protection.

Just over the border, Scotland is carving itself out as the ideal place for space tech businesses, with the Sunday Herald pointing out at the end of 2017 that one in five employees in the UK’s space sector are employed north of the border.

Scotland is particularly well-known within the industry for producing satellites, manufacturing more satellites than any other country in Europe at present.
