Third Planet Orbital (TPO) develops reliable building blocks for space technology users deliberately focusing on the robustness and trustworthiness of its products. Diverging from convention whereby satellites are always customised, TPO standardises to provide off-the-shelf Ready-To-Go solutions. Commercially supplying standardised satellite buses that are understood, tested and verified, to reduce lead times and user mission risk. TPO concerns itself with repeatability (Satellite Buses) specification and repeatability, allowing the users to focus on payload design and application. Additionally, providing users access to hardware (FlatSat Rental) and knowledge (Space Engineering Services) throughout their design process enables lower overall build costs combined with increased operational confidence.
The product spectrum allows users to initially engage with TPO at three distinct points in the specify-design-procure process. Each product phase allows the user's immediate need to be satisfied and provides a natural lead into the next phase.
