The future of logistic and space
The space world is undergoing a major transformation. In a sector that has always been dominated by large institutions, such as space agencies and governments, small businesses and startups are making their way into the complex and varied "new space" movement, where manufacturers and service providers become one and the same, with the birth of the concept of "satellite as a service". D-Orbit fully embraces this philosophy, positioning itself as a provider of different services (space transportation, payload hosting, Earth observation), all provided with the same class of satellite platforms which D-Orbit is both producer and operator. As a result, a paradigm transition has become necessary, and in D-Orbit's corporate organization is fulfilled, with a commercial area almost entirely devoted to the sale of services, and a technical area dedicated to the development and production of the spacecrafts that provide those services.
