The ‘heavy lifting’ is actually in working to meet the necessary regulations that often result in the longest lead time element in a space project.
In an industry first company, ManSat has launched a new confidential and free service. The service will help support space entrepreneurs decipher the many necessary regulations needed to successfully and legally operate in space: Preliminary Regulatory Reviews (PRRs).
Determining a viable regulatory path for a space venture is crucial, yet ironically, the most difficult aspect of getting into space can be gaining permission — without proper licensing, there is no launch. The ‘heavy lifting’ is actually in working to meet the necessary regulations that often result in the longest lead time element in a space project.
ManSat’s PRRs are confidential and free and provide an unbiased perspective as a sounding board to ask questions about the necessary spectrum, its availability and the associated regulations and licensing procedures.
They begin with an initial conversation with a consulting officer, who can potentially help reduce program cost, reduce program risk and offer peace of mind. Knowing and understanding the path ahead makes the regulatory journey transparent, understandable and navigable.
ManSat advises and supports clients’ commercial space activities and scientific missions from day-to-day market access issues to strategic orbital and spectrum resource acquisitions. Their clients range from large global organizations to small businesses and start-ups.
ManSat offers advice regarding regulatory challenges, direction for those who need to know where to start, or answers questions that until now have been too private to discuss.
