Through the twentieth century, space technology developed to become an indispensable resource in the ﬁelds of telecommunications, earth observation, meteorology and navigation.
SSC has taken part in the journey from its ﬁrst steps nearly 40 years ago, and is now a well-reputed and sought-after partner with operations world-wide.
Since SSC was founded in 1972, we have...
developed 8 scientific satellites
developed more than 60 rocket vehicles
developed 60 scientific payloads
launched 550 rockets

communicated with over 100 satellites of various types
Named the Swedish Space Corporation (in Sweden known as Rymdbolaget) we started as a Swedish company doing business all over the world. Over the years, we have grown to comprise several specialized companies with facilities on most continents. After rebranding in 2011, we now all act under the same brand - the SSC Group.
For many years, we have been active and successful in many fields of space technology, including the design of entire space missions. After the sale of our satellite development division in mid-summer 2011 and our maritime surveillance system unit in spring 2014, we dedicatedly focus on worldwide satellite management services, rocket and balloon system development and launches as well as satellite subsystems.
Through the years, customers have referred to us as the "no problem people" - and we think that this description captures the soul of SSC quite well. We simply enjoy a good challenge.
