Description:
Oxford Space Systems is a multi-award-winning, record-breaking venture capital backed, space tech business that's developing a new generation of deployable antennas and space structures for the global satellite industry. Using both innovative design techniques such as origami and novel proprietary materials developed by the company, OSS' structures are lighter, less complex and lower cost than alternatives in commercial demand. Founded in late 2013, OSS set a record for the space sector with it's AstroTube Boom: the fastest development of a new product from concept to successful deployment on orbit in under 30 months. Today, the 18 strong and growing OSS team is a diverse mix of international graduates and experienced space industry professionals, with over 100 years of combined space sector experience. OSS investors include a small syndicate of UK venture capital funds together US based investors, Space Angels. Oxford Space Systems has successfully completed a number of UK government supported co-developments with leading European satellite builders as well straight commercial contracts in both Asia and the US. As part of its planned expansion, OSS move into its own custom facility at the Harwell Space Cluster in August 2018, giving it the largest clean room at the cluster. The facility will meet required security standards to undertake UK government defense & security contracts. .
