Our mission is to open up the space industry. 
To everybody.

Satsearch is building the global marketplace for the space industry, to enable everyone to get involved.

Organizations across the globe, from researchers and startups to defense primes and space agencies, use our platform every day to analyze the supply chain and find information to help develop their missions.

Engineers in over 150 countries share their technical requirements with satsearch and we identify relevant supplier solutions, services, products, software, or technologies to meet their needs. You can find out more about how this process works here.

In addition, suppliers from right across the global supply chain rely on satsearch as a direct channel to reach engineers and mission designers in their target markets, while also keeping the industry up to date with the latest changes in their portfolio and operations. Click here to find out more about how this works, and the business model that we use.

We act as a neutral third-party and have supported more than 400 missions to date. We aren't a distributor, stockist, wholesaler, re-seller, or exclusive channel partner for any individual supplier, and we don't get involved in transactions. Click here to find out more about how satsearch works.

Instead, we provide a novel and powerful solution to the challenge of doing business in the modern, global space industry, leveraging our technology, community, and expertise to efficiently match engineer requirements with supplier capabilities at all levels of the supply chain.

This is how the space industry is becoming a real commercial enterprise - and the amazing benefits it can bring, both on and off Earth, are realized.
