At OneWeb, we recognise how critical collaboration is for safeguarding the space commons, and we are excited to work with our fellow leaders to ensure that space can remain a valuable and sustainable asset for future generations. The kitemark will be an important measurement in supporting space sustainability and safety as the industry grows and expands, and we are proud to support keeping the UK at the forefront of sustainable innovation in orbit,” said Vanotti.
