Surrey’s Hosted Payload customers will benefit from reliable, low-risk access to orbit, to rapidly and cost-effectively space-qualify new technology, gain flight heritage, acquire mission experience, generate in-orbit data and provide mission continuity capability, without the need to procure a costly dedicated launch.
Surrey's Hosted Payload missions will provide a simpler way for the U.S Government and commercial
organizations to deliver payloads to orbit.
Surrey’s platforms can fly a wide range of payloads for
different applications, including space and Earth science and monitoring, observation, technology demonstration, communications and frequency filing protection.
Surrey's successful Hosted Payload approach has been used on many previous LEO and MEO missions such as GIOVE-A and UKDMC-2, on ADS-1B which
is ready for launch, and TechDemoSat-1, which is scheduled for launch readiness later this year.
Our flexible heritage platforms can accommodate a wide range of different payloads and their short production timescales allow more time for payload
definition and delivery.
We have remaining capacity to fly payloads on OTB (Orbital Test Bed), launching Q1 2015, and on future planned rideshare missions. We can assess your payload's suitability for OTB or for manifesting on other missions.
