Raytheon and UK Ministry of Defence signed a Memorandum of Understanding  (MoU) on July 19 to join Team ARTEMIS Industry, a collaboration between government and industry formed to fast track the launch of a small satellite constellation.

"In large part because of US efforts to raise the profile of military space, allies are working hard to 'close the space gap,'" said Air Vice-Marshal Rocky Rochelle, Royal Air Force chief of staff for capability.

The company plans to launch a small satellite demonstrator within a year with Team ARTEMIS Industry.
