It was a pleasure to welcome a team, headed by CEO Paul Bate from the UK Space Agency, to Westcott to see the fantastic progress being made on the new In-Orbit Services and Manufacturing (IOSM) facility ahead of its opening early in 2022. The LEP supported this facility, that contributes to its Enterprise Zone programme, with a £2m Getting Building Fund award for the exciting new open access 2,387sqm centre. The visitors also had the opportunity to see the National Space Propulsion Test Facility and hear more about the ambitions 10 year plans to develop the site as a critical part of the UK Space launch infrastructure.
