STAR-Dundee Ltd

In 2002, the Space Technology Centre launched a spin-out company, STAR-Dundee Ltd, to take advantage of the group's world-leading SpaceWire technology and experience in a commercial setting.

STAR-Dundee produces a wide range of equipment to enable the development, simulation and testing of SpaceWire networks and devices. Many STAR-Dundee products have benefited from the cutting-edge research conducted by the Space Technology Centre, particularly the use of the SpaceWire router IP, developed under ESA contract and licensed to STAR-Dundee.

STAR-Dundee also provides first-class and acclaimed technical support to SpaceWire developers, making available over 40 person-years experience in SpaceWire technology which includes authorship of the SpaceWire standard. STAR-Dundee's customer base has been growing steadily since 2002 and the company now has customers in over 20 countries.
