Skytek supports the Northern Ireland Space Strategy through the NI Space Leadership Council 

Skytek (Rita) participated in the recent Northern Ireland workshop hosted by Digital Catapult NI, Northern Ireland Space Office and Blue Inspiration Ltd. The workshop was funded by the UK Space Agency and supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult – The purpose of this workshop is to support alignment of local government needs and requirements with NI business commercial development. The workshop provided an opportunity to explore priority areas where ‘space’ can support regional public service delivery and potentially define pilot research type activities to nurture government and local industry engagement.

"Skytek is an example of a company moving into the UK Space Sector with innovative technologies and capabilities to support development across the country and supporting the UK 'Levelling Up' agenda in the context of space development in the region."
