Blue Dwarf’s cutting-edge platform prioritises cybersecurity, utilising the latest security measures to safeguard sensitive data. Incorporating AI technology, the platform will ensure data accuracy and compliance by checking inputs and ensuring clients are educated on what is lacking or not fit for purpose. Their customer-centric design focuses on delivering an enjoyable and seamless user experience, with an intuitive web portal and progress-tracking dashboard.

The platform’s user-friendly interface allows a personalised experience tailored to individual needs, allowing data access by specific requirement, or grouped into sensible topic areas. They take each piece of information once, and use it across the whole of mission, or where applicable, the whole of company (across any or all missions). Users always know what is needed from them, and when, with data requirement prioritising according to hierarchical need. Attention to detail at every step of the process ensures that applications for permits and pre-requisites are robust and ready, making the platform not only a problem-solver but also a pleasure to use.

The global space industry is predicted to be valued at $1.4 trillion USD annually by 2030, of which between 5-15% of total spend is expected to be an addressable market for regulatory services. This is $70-210 billion dollars annually, mostly untapped. Being ahead of the curb should capture an annual spend between $7-50 billion.

Blue Dwarf Space is seeking forward-thinking customers and visionary investors to join them on their mission to simplify access to space. Together, they hope to unlock the potential of the space industry, drive innovation, and shape the future of space exploration.
