This latest contract will see Barum & Dewar deliver a set of three bespoke DELTA style satellite containers along with a similar number of custom manufactured integration trolleys.

In-Space Missions are working with BAE Systems to provide the capability to design, build, launch and operate their Azalea satellites. Azalea Cluster 1 will be launched into low Earth orbit to deliver high-quality information and intelligence in real time from space to military customers. It will boost the UK’s ability to understand the threats and hazards in, from and through space and will be launch-ready by the end of 2024, scheduled to launch in 2025.

Azalea will use a range of sensors to collect radar and radio frequency (RF) data, which will be analysed by on board machine learning on edge processors to deliver the resulting intelligence securely, anywhere in the world while still in orbit.

Unlike conventional, single-purpose satellites, the cluster can be fully reconfigured whilst in orbit in the same way a smartphone installs a new app; this ensures it can deliver future customer missions and expands the lifecycle of the satellites.

David Frame, Managing Director, said: “Having previously supplied the satellite containers for a previous mission – Titania, B&D are delighted to be working with the team at In-Space once again on this latest project. All containers and supporting integration trollies are scheduled for delivery later this month, ahead of schedule and on budget.”
