Westcott Space Cluster
Westcott Space Cluster, located in Westcott Venture Park, is home to a thriving nucleus of space companies
The Westcott Space Cluster is situated in the Enterprise Zone of Westcott Venture Park and aims to be become globally recognised as an integral part of the UK space sector growth strategy, boasting an unrivalled reputation for supporting rocket and satellite enabled demonstrator projects for real-world applications.
The Westcott BIC is working closely with numerous organisations on site, including the 5G Step-Out Centre and is looking forward to welcoming other planned investments, including the UK Space Agency’s National Propulsion Test Centre, Reaction Engines‘ rocket engine test facility and the Westcott Innovation Centre, which is currently under construction.
In addition, many other organisations are located nearby focused on propulsion, UAV development and next generation resilient communication networks. See westcottspacecluster.org.uk/companies for more details.
The Westcott 5G Step-out Centre (SoC) offers a unique 5G facility to test and develop new services and products by accessing the latest wireless applications service equipment and satellite data without the need to invest in expensive infrastructure.
Westcott provides a secure, controlled environment in a rural location with poor terrestrial coverage, allowing for testing of new infrastructure without the risk of causing interference to existing systems.
The Westcott Innovation Centre will compliment the 5G Step-Out Centre and the BIC in offering engineering facilities, workspace and access to local networks. The Centre, currently under construction, is being funded by the Satellite Applications Catapult and Buckingham Local Enterprise Partnership, and is due to be opened in summer 2020.
