Dhruva Space, an Indian space engineering company, and the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) have strengthened their long-standing partnership. This collaboration focuses on expanding satellite ground station networks, aiming to propel the growth of both Sweden’s and India’s burgeoning new space industries.

The partnership will see Dhruva Space utilize SSC’s established network of ground stations for their upcoming LEAP-1 mission. LEAP-1 is a hosted payload satellite mission scheduled for launch later this year.

This agreement marks a significant step forward for Dhruva Space and SSC. It signifies their shared commitment to making space more accessible. Dhruva Space’s full-stack space engineering solutions, encompassing satellite manufacturing, launch services, and mission operations, will be complemented by SSC’s extensive experience in ground station operations and satellite communication services. This collaboration creates a powerful synergy that will benefit both companies.

Dhruva Space brings its expertise in developing and deploying satellites to the table. The SSC, on the other hand, contributes its vast knowledge and infrastructure for operating ground stations, which are vital for communication and control of satellites throughout their missions. The LEAP-1 mission will be a testament to the effectiveness of this combined expertise.

This partnership between Dhruva Space and SSC extends beyond the LEAP-1 mission. It paves the way for future collaborations, potentially including joint ground station operations, resource sharing, and even research and development initiatives. This stronger collaboration between these two spacefaring nations holds immense potential to accelerate the growth of the global new space industry.
