We help teams across the globe realize their goals in space

GomSpace is a space company situated in Denmark founded in 2007. Our mission is to be engaged in the global market for space systems and services by introducing new products, i.e. components, platforms and systems, based on innovation within professional Nanosatellite technology.

  • We provide cost-effective reliable subsystems and platform solutions to the expanding nano- and Cubesatellite markets.
  • We develop new products and mission concepts for nanosatellites.
  • We implement pre-operational demonstration missions of new nanosatellite based services that can be spun out as individual service businesses.

We provide an extensive portfolio of commercially available off the shelf subsystems and software components for nanosatellites, and we provide turnkey nanosatellite projects providing customers with full platform & mission solutions.

Design and integration takes place at GomSpace, while quality-conscious subcontractors in Denmark carry out a large part of the production.

GomSpace has established a unique technology and business platform with a tremendous potential that we will gradually unlock in the coming years as the nanosatellite market further develops.

The management team comprises the necessary experience and skills to take full advantage of GomSpace’s current opportunities in the rapidly growing market for nanosat based solutions.
