The Isle of Man has quickly become recognised as an
ideal location for space-related industries, and four out of
the ten top satellite companies in the world now have a presence
The Island is also host to the International Institute of Space Commerce (IISC) - the result of a partnership between the International Space University (ISU) and the Manx Government. It aims to become a leading think-tank in the study of space economics, and is based in the International Business School.
Manx satellite operators themselves have formed the Space Data Association (SDA), which has had a great impact on the industry since 2009. It seeks to improve the safety and integrity of satellite operations, and to improve management of the shared resources of the space environment and the RF spectrum.
