Our Business Philosophy


Lean (liːn) adjective.

To us this word encompasses what our clients can expect from NewSpace. A philosophy that promises tailored, fit for purpose,
components and sub-systems of a guaranteed high quality. No more and no less than exactly what each mission requires.

Investing in the (re)qualication of technology, existing or proof-of-concept design and its commercialisation,
NewSpace remains competitive as a result of our:
