Space Insight Limited, an independent United Kingdom-based company, is a provider of space situation awareness information to clients who need to know more about the growing population of objects in near-Earth space. The company offers unique experience and expertise in the key areas of sensor operation and observation analysis to generate knowledge.

A pioneer of innovative space surveying techniques with its own specialist electro-optical Starbrook sensors, Space Insight has been commissioned by clients including the United Kingdom Space Agency and the Defence Science & Technology Laboratory to provide surveillance of higher Earth orbits since 2006.

As a member of various international consortia the company has contributed consultancy and observational data to SSA-related work for the European Space Agency.

Space Insight scientists were members of the UK delegation at the Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee for 13 years, and twice chaired the IADC’s Measurements Working Group.

From 2016 to 2020 the company provided the UK Space Agency with observations of space objects as part of the EU Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) Programme. UK participation in the EU SST Programme brought together the UK Space Agency, the Ministry of Defence, the Science & Technology Facilities Council, the Natural Environment Research Council, and Space Insight.
