Ubisense debuts in space and satellites market
Cambridge locations technology company Ubisense has won its first contract in the space and satellites sector for deployment of its SmartSpace platform and associated products.
The customer is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial and military geosynchronous satellite platforms and space probes.
Ubisense’s software platform and location system will support the customer’s strategy to double production output. By integrating location technologies into a single operational view of real-time production, SmartSpace provides complete visibility of the manufacturing process, creating efficiencies across operations and enabling significant growth in production.
This win provides another solid contribution to the revenues generated from Ubisense’s own products, underpinning the board’s expectations for the business and reflecting the opportunity to win important contracts in completely new sectors, according to CEO Richard Petti.
He said: “As our first contract in the space and satellites sector this is an exciting win for us. This market offers a wealth of opportunities for Ubisense across the two key areas of satellite manufacturing and ground support equipment manufacturing.
“The deal is a result of our ongoing strategy to proactively seek opportunities in new industries as well as retaining and growing business across our core sectors of passenger and commercial vehicles, aerospace and transit.
SmartSpace is proven to deliver improvements in productivity for many manufacturers and the opportunities that this offers us as a business are enormous.”
