OXFORD SPACE SYSTEMS
Oxford Space Systems (OSS) is bringing to market a new generation of deployable structures for Space that are lighter, less complex and lower cost than existing products. Part of a new wave of small, agile businesses transforming the Space sector, it is unusual in its focus on satellite hardware – historically an expensive sector for small firms to break into. OSS is attracting interest from leading satellite manufacturers in Europe and the US because of its use of innovative materials and agile approach to product development.
OSS is now expanding its team in order to develop its product portfolio, and has just raised £1.2 million in a new funding round led by existing seed investor Longwall Ventures.
