Clyde Space CEO Craig Clark: The company which designed and built Scotland's first satellite is set to expand after securing two orders worth a total of more than £2m.<br />
Glasgow-based Clyde Space will provide power systems for Luxembourg-based space company Lux Space in a deal valued at £1.2m.<br />
The systems will be used in two satellites Lux is building for the European Space Agency.<br />
The second deal, worth nearly £1m, involves US-based Spire Inc.<br />
Clyde Space, which produces small satellite, nanosatellite and CubeSat systems, built the UKube-1 which was launched into space from Kazakhstan in July.<br />
It is also currently working on what it claims is the most advanced CubeSat ever built for the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy.<br />
Clyde Space founder and chief executive Craig Clark said: "Our first satellite UKube-1 allowed us not only to prove a bunch of new technologies in space, it also puts us on the map as a proven spacecraft provider not just in the UK, but globally.<br />
"We're building on this experience and success to deliver even more capable spacecraft."<br />
