Advanced space technology and capability is becoming a core requirement across government, defence and commercial sectors in order to protect citizens, defend nations, predict natural disasters and more. BAE Systems has a long heritage of working in the space sector and over the past two decades has applied its experience in delivering complex defence programmes to help create a secure space domain, developing specialist technologies in waveforms, electronics, antennas and digital signal processing analytics.

In 2021, when BAE Systems acquired In-Space Missions – the company co-founded by Doug Liddle back in 2015 – the aim was to bring together this existing space expertise with In-Space Missions’ capabilities and work together to design, build and operate full satellites.

In-Space Missions has been a part of BAE Systems Digital Intelligence since it formed in 2022 and the two teams have collaborated closely on Azalea – its programme to launch a cluster of multisensor satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO), with the ability to deliver high-quality information and intelligence back to Earth in real time.
 
Doug Liddle, Director, Space, BAE Systems Digital Intelligence, said: "Now, we are excited to announce the next chapter in our space story: the establishment of our new integrated Space Leadership Team and business unit."
    
Made up of experienced leaders from both In-Space Missions and BAE Systems Digital Intelligence, this talented team draws on an impressive array of skills and knowledge, which will collaborate to advance its aim of becoming a space prime by delivering on its Azalea programme, nurturing the wider space ecosystem and fostering the next generation of skills.
