RASK consults satellite control service provider Spaceit on entering the world’s largest aerospace accelerator.


RASK consulted the Estonian startup Spaceit on signing a cooperation agreement and raising capital with Starburst , the world’s leading space technology and aviation accelerator.

Offering mission control services for satellite ground communications, Spaceit is the first startup company to complete the incubation programme of the European Space Agency’s Estonian business incubation centre (ESA BIC Estonia), before moving on to the Paris branch of the Starburst accelerator. In the ESA BIC programme, Spaceit successfully tested its control system in space. In Paris, work on developing its satellite control system and providing services to new clients will continue.

Spaceit is a satellite control services startup that grew out of the first Estonian satellite programme, ESTCube-1. The company’s product portfolio includes a unique, secure and universal control platform that uses a worldwide network of ground stations to deliver high-quality radio communication with satellites.

Starburst is the world’s leading accelerator for aviation, space and defence, operating in Paris, Los Angeles, Montreal, Munich, San Francisco and Singapore. The programme offers strategic mentoring to startups to ensure their successful entry into the market and connects them with major aerospace corporates such as The Aerospace Corporation, Boeing, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Millennium Space Systems and many others.
