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 Future Networks Development 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.
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 Future Networks Development Centre (FNDC) 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 is funded by the Local Growth Fund and Aylesbury Vale Enterprise Zone through the Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and is managed by the Satellite Applications Catapult.
We offer businesses the opportunity to hire specialist equipment for light mechanical engineering and rapid prototyping within our 600m2 flexible facility. The Innovation Centre also houses offices and meeting rooms, meaning businesses can make full use of the site throughout their project.
