The annual Small Satellite Conference held by Utah State University is taking place virtually this year, and is free to attend. Bright Ascension are participating, so come by and visit our virtual exhibition booth!

We have a live chat channel where you can get in touch to discuss our software products and arrange meetings, and our CEO Peter Mendham will be presenting a daily webinar demonstrating our Flight Software and Mission Control Software.

Bright Ascension are space software specialists offering products and services addressing the complete range of upstream software needs.

Our flagship Flight Software Development kit has off-the-shelf support for a wide range of platforms and subsystems from a broad range of vendors. The unique modular technology makes key functions portable, enabling vendor-independence and facilitating development, testing and integration.

Bright Ascension’s intuitive Mission Control Software seamlessly integrates with our flight software permitting rapid configuration and scalability to constellation operations. The focus on operability and automation gets more from space systems. System modularity permits interaction with alternative platforms, eliminating vendor lock-in and increasing the efficiency and competitiveness of space services.

Our software has been in operational use since 2014 with twelve spacecraft flying. Additionally, we have carried out R&D activities for organisations of all sizes, from creating custom software to delivering full turn-key mission software.
