Welcome to Space Advisory

Members of the Space Advisory team have contributed in leading roles on a number of South African and international satellite missions. The core of the experience goes back to the South African technology demonstration satellites and the optical payloads on the satellites Sunsat and Sumbandilasat.

The dynamic and experienced team has since applied their skills in support of local and international operational small satellite missions that are based on a varying set of technology bases. Amongst the latest projects being worked on is the new South African operational earth observation satellite, EoSAT-1, as well as camera and electronics payloads for various nano-satellites and specifically the Netherlands-China Lunar Explorer mission.

Space Advisory is a proud recipient of the 2017 Da Vinci TT100 national award for Management of Systems in addition to the Innovation Concept award for the Gecko Imager.
