ManSat is now offering preliminary regulatory reviews to help space engineers understand the regulations needed to legally operate in space. 

Mansat said in a Monday release that these reviews are free and confidential, as a place for entrepreneurs to ask questions about spectrum, its availability and the associated regulations and licensing procedures. ManSat specializes in obtaining international recognition for frequency assignments at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and advises clients’ commercial space activities. 

“Determining a viable regulatory path for a space venture is crucial. The hardest thing about getting into space can be gaining permission. Without proper licensing, there is no launch, so working to meet the necessary regulations can often prove to be the longest lead time element in a space project. An initial conversation can potentially reduce program cost, reduce program risk and offer peace of mind,” the company said in the release.
