Nominations for SSPI’s inaugural annual list of The Rising Five are open. This is your opportunity to have your say on the five New Space Companies in the satellite industry that have made the most progress in the past year. Nominated companies can come from the launch, manufacturing, satellite operations and ground segment operations and technology sectors. The Rising Five will be decided by an international editorial advisory board and will be announced on March 7, 2017 at the annual Chairman’s Reception that precedes the Hall of Fame Benefit Dinner at SATELLITE in Washington, DC.
“New Space, whatever name you call it, is generating the headlines these days,” said executive director Robert Bell. “Revenues, profits, reliable technology and sustainable business models, however, are somewhere in the future for most of these companies. Innovation travels a difficult path, and the new entrants into the space and satellite business have much to learn from – and much to teach to – those who have gone before. That is the spirit we celebrate with The Rising Five.”
SpaceWatch Middle East’s very own Torsten Kriening is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board, as well as:
- Clayton Aldo, Editor, Satellite Pro Middle East
- Brian Berger, Editor in Chief, SpaceNews
- Virgil Labrador, Editorial Director, Satellite Markets & Research
- Silvano Payne, Publisher, SatNews
- Jason Rainbow, Editor, Satellite Finance
- Amy Saunders, Editor, Satellite Evolution
Recommendations for The Rising Five can be submitted to SSPI Membership Director Tamara Bond-Williams by email at [email protected]. All nominations must be submitted by January 7, 2017 to be considered.
We will be following the nominees with interest and will report on any developments as they happen.
