Supporting a sustainable Low-Earth Orbit economy
The Project challenge
COMMpla was selected in 2021 by ESA European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), to support them in the design, development and roll-out of the digital home of the ESA Business in Space Growth Network (BSGN).
BSGN is an initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA), promoting the development of a market for the commercial use of human-tended platforms in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), thereby contributing to the emergence of and transition towards a sustainable LEO and Lunar economy.
The project, started in February 2021, delivered the design and development of the European “one-stop-shop” for information and resources related to opportunities in the commercialisation of human spaceflight and robotic exploration. It contributes to bridging the gap between the science-oriented and capability-driven space sector and the product-driven non-space sectors which could use the space environment to boost their product development. The web platform went live in November 2021.
