New technologies and innovative ideas drive successful missions in space. Think of hundreds of small satellites forming a single constellation, communicating with one another and with ground stations on Earth via laser technology. Think of world class solar panels, the best in the business. And think of lighter, stronger and more durable materials made for space that can also be used back home, on Earth.
The Netherlands is a small country with great focus. That’s why it leads the way in specific and purposely chosen niches like small satellites, solar panels and world renowned astronomy. Because of its attractive investment climate and high-quality education system, the Netherlands is home to a large number of small innovative companies. Together with the government and knowledge institutes the Dutch space industry is shaping the future of missions in space.
