Space exploration has always captured the imagination of humankind, pushing the boundaries of what we thought was possible. In recent years, the private sector has played a pivotal role in advancing space technology, making space exploration more accessible and affordable. As a leading company in the space exploration industry, B2Space recently had the incredible opportunity to exhibit at Space-Comm Expo 2023. With our demonstrated capabilities in HAPS (High Altitude Platform System) and Near Space Testing Operations, our presence at this event generated significant buzz. In this blog post, we are thrilled to share the highlights of our exhibit at the Space-Comm Expo 2023 and how we are driving innovation in the space industry.

B2Space in the UK

Based in the United Kingdom, B2Space has emerged as a pioneering force in the field of space exploration. Our innovative solutions and relentless pursuit of affordable access to space have placed us at the forefront of revolutionizing the space industry. With our recent exhibit at the Space-Comm Expo, we had the opportunity to showcase our innovative technologies and demonstrate how we are shaping the future of space exploration right here in the UK.

Shaping the Future Space Industry

B2Space is at the forefront of a groundbreaking approach to space travel, with a strong emphasis on creating innovative launch vehicles that offer both affordability and dependability. The company’s main goal is to overcome the challenges associated with conventional satellite launches, opening space exploration to a wider spectrum of customers such as research institutions, startups, and government agencies. By utilizing our expertise in HAPS and near space testing operations, B2Space aims to make space more accessible while simultaneously reducing costs and promoting sustainable practices.

B2Space at Space-Comm Expo 2023

B2Space was delighted to attend this year’s Space-Comm Expo, where the team consistently networked with space enthusiasts, potential partners, and investors, as well as shared their expertise in terms of space technology.

Held at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, Space-Comm Expo focuses on the entire space industry, where exhibitors can display their technologies.

Over the course of the two-day event, the team had a productive time connecting with various professionals and stakeholders in the industry. We accumulated many business cards, indicating growing interest in our organization and its offerings. Also, we distributed many fliers, on which we provided our email address for further communication.

Notably, we were privileged to be visited by representatives from the Department of Trade and Industry, including James Ridley-Jones, as well as delegates from the Department of Transport and other government agencies. Their interest in our operations at Llanbedr and their eagerness to seek our perspective on its utilization emphasized the significance of our work.

Furthermore, we were delighted to engage in conversations with SPINtern students who had previously applied to our organization and enquired about potential opportunities. Our team took the initiative to approach universities, generating a favorable level of interest in engaging with the BlueJay programme.

In addition, @Stemtheviolence (you can find them on Instagram), an organization with whom we had been in conversation on social media before, expressed their interest in the BlueJay programme. Their focus on creating small projects requiring testing aligns well with our goals.

Overall, the event served as an excellent platform for networking, highlighting our endeavors, and establishing valuable connections within the industry.
