Swedish Space Corporation & Swedish Government Delegation Have Southern California Visits On Their Minds

SSC, a global provider of advanced space services, is hosting a Swedish government delegation visit to California from May 23-27.

The four-member Swedish Government delegation, led by former Vice Prime Minister of Sweden, Mr. Jan Nygren, are here to meet with industry leaders to better understand the emerging space market.  

Meeting the various needs of smallsat and cubesat missions is a key SSC corporate objective and is being realized in two ways: the creation of a launch capability in northern Sweden, and SSC Infinity, a new, low-cost ground operations service offering customers full flexibility for small satellites and constellations. The company and delegation will be meeting with several industry leading companies.  Attendees of Space Tech Expo who wish to meet with the delegation during the conference should contact kevin.mortensen@sscspace.com.

Recent growth in new, smallsat and constellation-based space applications throughout the world is driving the need for a new approach to ground segment operations” said Leif Osterbo, president, SSC Satellite Management Services Division.

Stefan Gustafsson, SSC's Senior Vice President for Strategy and Sustainable Business, said, “The delegation is very interested in discussing launch and market issues with industry experts. We are optimistic the emerging space culture will encourage the use of commercial services from launch to on orbit TT&C and payload data capture.”
