The University of Surrey will be working with Imperial College London and the Universities of Edinburgh, Liverpool, Salford and Warwick on the core research programme of the Hub. There are further 28 project partners from industry, research, commercial and governmental organisations. The hub will accelerate the prototyping of autonomous systems in a scalable way, where the innovations and methodologies developed can be rapidly spun out for wide adoption in the space sector worldwide.

Neptec UK has been appointed to the Industry Advisory Board (IAB) for the consortium.
