The SCS Aerospace Group was founded in 2008 and is based not only on the space engineering legacy of South Africa, but also in response to increasing need for space technology for commercial, government and social benefit especially in developing countries.

The group consists of three companies.

They are Space Advisory Company (SAC)

(www.spaceadvisory.com) which provides

innovative small satellite programme and

systems products, engineering consultancy

and training solutions;

SCS Space (www.scs-space.com) which

provides small satellite mission solutions

as well as small satellite systems; and

NewSpace Systems (www.newspacesystems.com)

which develops and manufactures high-quality

space components and sub-systems. 

The group employs some 90 highly trained

satellite specialists including electronic,

systems, software and mechanical engineers.

  • The satellite engineering team has actively been involved for more than 25 years in nano, micro and small satellites
