Arc- the space gateway

24 February 2021

The Oxford to Cambridge Arc plays host to clusters of space-related activity, including the Satellite Applications Catapult, as well as the propulsion and testing centres at Wescott and
Harwell. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the space industry is more important than ever, with Universities key to building the capacity of this major national industry of the future. Realising
the full potential benefits that could be delivered in the next phase will take a supreme and well coordinated effort from academia, industry, and Government.

As Chief Operating Officer of the Satellite Applications Catapult, Lucy Edge is responsible for supporting enterprises across the UK in understanding and exploiting the potential of space and satellites to create opportunities and transform businesses. With a background in Physics and Engineering, Lucy’s career to date has involved the launch of satellites from a few kilograms to a few tonnes, building a satellite operations centre in West Cornwall and setting up the Disruptive Innovation for Space Centre with the Catapult team. Lucy is an ardent believer in the Catapult vision “To innovate for a better world, empowered by satellites.”

Many see the growing space industry as a potential source of economic growth; Lucy also sees it as a way of improving the future for everyone, and of building connections between people and communities that will transform the way we relate to each other.
