The Space Delivery Team (SDT) is engaging with the market prior to the publication of a Contract Notice and formal commencement of the procurement programme.

An in-person Market Interest Day will be held in Bristol on Friday 1st March to brief potential industry partners on the project scope and aims including technologies currently being considered and support required from Industry to meet the project needs.

The day will be split into two sessions covering:

  1. the support elements intended to be contracted through a ‘systems house’.
  2. the proposed technologies currently under consideration

The sessions will consist of presentations on each of the elements as well as discussions during which industry participation and feedback is encouraged. All information gathered will be taken into consideration and may inform the future strategy of the programme.

A follow up document containing key information from the day will be provided to all attendees after the event. Commercially sensitive information will not be shared.

Attendance from Space Command, DSTL and DE&S Space Delivery Team is expected on the day.
