We remain very optimistic about the long-term potential for the nanosatellite market. The investments into the general space market continue to be large and we still see new startup companies with new services that aim for making satellite constellations. We also see that the governmental market is showing signs of future growth. Many countries are now formulating national space strategies that include nanosatellites for science and national security. We also see clear signs that the established players in the satellite service business are becoming interested in nanosatellites.” CEO Niels Buus commented.
