In recent months, five new entities have joined the group of members of the SPACE P. This is the result of the increasing position of the Association in the Polish space sector. The organization plays an increasingly important role in supporting the business development of entities and promoting the industry.

In October, the Association’s members were joined by Agencja Rozwoju Przemysłu S.A. (The Industry Development Agency), which has been cooperating with ZPSK for many years in organizing the internship program „Development of human resources in the space sector”. ARP is also the leader of the consortium responsible for the establishment of the Business Incubator of the European Space Agency in Poland (ESA BIC Poland) in Rzeszów. In addition, it runs a special loan line for entities conducting economic activity in the space technology sector. It also cooperates with international organizations whose purpose is the exploration and use of outer space (eg ESA, GSA, EDA, national agencies, as well as PRIME companies).

In October this year, together with ARP, the following companies joined the Association: Sat Agro Sp. z o.o. (Warsaw) and Proximo Aero Sp. z o.o. Sp. k. (Rzeszów). The first of them deals with satellite observations in the field of agriculture. Sat Agro has a service available on its website that allows subscribers to access NASA, ESA satellite imagery and a group of private operators. Thanks to them, farmers can create, for their own business, precise dosing plans for agricultural machines, optimal application of fertilizers, pesticides and seeds, as well as soil testing for plant nutrition or irrigation. In turn, the second company – Proximo Aero – specializes in design and construction, simulation and calculations, and additive technologies. The company has existed since 2018.

In September this year Progresja Space Sp. z o.o. from Cracow started the membership in the Association. (Cracow). The company is a Polish start-up specializing in the design, production and sale of propulsion systems for small satellites, in particular nanosatellites. Progresja Space conducts research and development on various drive technologies – both electric and chemical. The company’s goal is to implement to market ready-to-integrate propulsion systems for private companies which operates in the space sector. The products will be used in order to maintain the constellation of satellites, change and maintain the orbit, control orientation, and remove satellites through deorbitation.

In the middle of this year, Microamp Solutions Sp. z o.o. became a new member of SPACE PL. The company headquarters is in Lublin. This is another technological startup, this time from the East Wall, dealing with the development and implementation of innovative radio systems (RF) for modern 5G networks and wireless communication systems. It is the only company in Central and Eastern Europe specializing in the development of radio equipment for commercial applications in 5G wireless cellular networks. Microamp Solutions wants to be a world leader in the RF (radio frequency) sector.
