SaxaVord, the UK's
Pathfinder Space Port

We are creating a successful, internationally recognised “new space business” that provides a superior value proposition in all that we do.

Our Vision

“Without belief a vision cannot be realised and without persistence a vision will fail. We believed and we persisted, and our vision is now reality. SaxaVord is the UK’s Pathfinder Space Port.”

Frank Strang - CEO

SaxaVord Space Port is developing a launch site and ground station at Lamba Ness in Unst, Shetland.

We are awaiting a determination on our planning application by Shetland Islands Council for the launch site, which is designed for small rockets delivering payloads into low earth orbit. We will host the UK Space Agency’s UK Pathfinder launch, which will be delivered by Lockheed Martin and ABL Systems, in 2022.
