We are creating a successful, internationally recognised “new space business” that provides a superior value proposition in all that we do.
“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 Spaceport.”
Premier Launch Facility
Ground Station Network
SaxaVord Spaceport is developing a launch site and ground station at Lamba Ness in Unst, Shetland.
We have secured planning permission for our 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.
