About Us


Our Vision is an Open and Accessible Outer Space for all. We believe that space should be claimed the libre (open source) way.


Our Mission is to promote, advance and develop libre (free and open source) technologies and knowledge for space.
To do that, we design, develop and deliver space related projects ranging from Ground Station equipment to global monitoring Networks and satellite missions.
