In this Insurance Institute of London (IIL) Aviation webinar, Jan Skolmli will provide an introduction to Orbex and its satellite launch system. He will then give an overview of the history of the company and explain where it fits into the UK Government’s ambitions with respect to the development of indigenous UK satellite launch capability.
Founded in 2015, Orbex is a UK-based private, low-cost orbital launch services company, serving the needs of the small satellite industry. Orbex has developed one of the most advanced, low carbon, high performance micro-launch vehicles in the world. Its advanced launch vehicle means higher reliability, more flexible mission profile types and a regular, scheduled launch service. With headquarters and production facilities in Forres, Scotland and design facilities in Denmark, its European location means shorter supply lines and reduced operational costs.
By the end of this webinar members would have gained an insight into:
• Orbex as a UK satellite launch provider
• What is required to develop a launch system from scratch
• Anticipated insurance challenges and requirements
