There are three main barriers in the space sector that slow down the development of space applications, science and technology:highcosts,consuming paperwork and complex technology.Open Cosmos tackles these barriers, putting satellite technology in the hands of more people than ever before. This is achieved with bee Kit, a payload hardware emulator platform, and bee App, a cloud-based mission and system simulator software. By using standardised interfaces and processes together with industry best practices, the entire development of a mission can be simplified massively reducing cost and time to orbit and opening space access to a broader and more diverse audience.
