What do we do?

ReOrbit strives to shape the future of the space economy. Our vision is to build the foundation for the next generation of space applications by transforming how satellites are designed and manufactured from today’s rigid single-use satellites into autonomous, connected, and reconfigurable systems. We want to develop the infrastructure for seamless data flow in space or to and from the ground. We, therefore, provide small satellites based on our software-defined platforms which are optimised for high data transfer capacity. We are a system integrator, using our software technologies to cost-efficiently manufacture satellites. Our services range from mission and spacecraft design to integration and qualification, as well as integration with launch and ground segment services. Today we are a rapidly growing company and building a very strong multidisciplinary team to support our activities. We are headquartered in Helsinki, Finland with subsidiaries in Stockholm, Sweden and Bariloche, Argentina.
