About us

Bright Ascension was founded in 2011 to offer a fresh and innovative approach to space software. Our team has a wealth of experience from both the space industry and other high-technology sectors allowing us to blend the most innovative ideas to create new approaches to software development and operation. Roots in the traditional and non-traditional space industry have given us a deep understanding of quality, and that reliability must be at the heart of even the most novel solutions.

Taking a fast-paced approach to engineering has allowed us to drive forward the state of the art in space software. We are heavily involved in R&D and standards development across the industry, including via space agencies and international bodies such as CCSDS. Through our complementary focus on products and services, we have demonstrated the benefits of our capabilities in a wide range of missions and activities, from nano-satellites to small satellites, and larger.
