A new age for the Portuguese Space Industry

The Portuguese Space industry is in constant evolution for the last 20 years, with a growing involvement in international programmes, such as the ones implemented through the European Space Agency (ESA) or the Horizon 2020. With INFANTE, starts a new age for Space in Portugal. Being the first satellite of the Portuguese industry, leveraged by the New Space paradigm shift, INFANTE will prepare the way for new products and services leveraged with innovative business models.
INFANTE builds on the capabilities of internationally recognised companies that are strongly engaged in international Space R&D programmes in the areas of structures, avionics, communications and propulsion. These companies are supported by state-of-the-art research and innovation centres to enhance the capability to tackle challenges of increasing complexity.
The INFANTE consortium provides the place for this articulation to happen, aligning, for the first time, the main Space industrial and technological players towards a common goal.
