As a result of the unveiling of the EU’s first mainland orbital launch complex by European officials and King Carl XVI Gustaf, the European Union hopes to expand its capability to launch small satellites into space through the creation of a new launchpad in Arctic Sweden, which will complement the EU’s current launching capability in French Guiana by providing a new facility at Esrange Space Centre near Kiruna.

As part of a visit to Sweden by members of the European Commission, European officials and Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf inaugurated the country’s first mainland orbital launch complex, and Ursula Von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, noted that small satellites are essential to track natural disasters in real time. By 2040, there could be 100,000 operational satellites compared to 5,000 currently operational satellites, as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war.

As Stefan Gardefjord, CEO of the Swedish Space Corporation, informed us, satellites are crucial for many functions of daily life in today’s modern world, and the need for them will increase in the coming years, since space will play a more important role in our daily lives. Swedish Space Corporation (SCC) provides space subsystems, space and satellite operations, rocket and balloon systems including experiment equipment, launch services, aerospace engineering services, and airborne maritime surveillance systems. It is also engaged in the development of propulsion systems and micromechanical systems for space applications.
