The introduction of launch capabilities in the UK will be a catalyst for further growth in the wider space industry, and the UK government is also developing a comprehensive national space strategy to bring long-term strategic and commercial benefits to the UK. This webiner provides participants with the basic context of the agreement and its justifications, as well as instructions on their location, when they have questions about what they need to do to be part of this initiative. At the same time, local planning permissions are needed. The Sutherland space station project in northern Scotland is expected to be considered next week. The British arm of US aviation giant Lockheed Martin wants to fire missiles vertically from the ground. She looked at the Sutherland space station project. The agreement means that U.S. space and technology companies can contribute to and benefit from the commercial opportunities of the UK`s space sector throughout the supply chain, which already employs 42,000 people and generates $14.8 billion a year in revenue. This agreement is an exciting new area for space cooperation between Britain and the United States and is an important step towards American companies taking off from British space ports. Tony Azzarelli, co-founder and director of the US industrial group Access.Space, welcomed the agreement. This is a key moment for our commercial aerospace industry and I look forward to companies from Scotland to Newquay benefiting and creating high-skilled jobs on both sides of the Atlantic.
Today`s announcement is more than just an agreement. This is a guarantee given to US space companies that their sensitive technologies will be protected in the UK. This is a chance for American industry to take advantage of all that the UK has to offer. The agreement is therefore a must for US companies such as Virgin Orbit and Lockheed Martin to start launching satellites from the UK. On June 16, after two years of negotiations, the United Kingdom and the United States adopted their new “U.K.-U.S. The Technology Safety Agreement, which will certainly lead to even more inspiring space efforts on both sides of the Atlantic. The United States and the United Kingdom have signed an agreement that paves the way for U.S. companies to take off from British space ports.
According to the U.S. State Department, the agreement provides technical security measures for U.S. launches from the U.K. and also sets standards on how sensitive U.S. technologies should be used to launch satellites and missiles from foreign sites. If these missing elements exist, then the UK will have all the expertise necessary to build, test and market its own space equipment. After manufacturing equipment in the UK, companies will soon be able to launch small satellites from UK soil.
