SpaceForest develops and commercializes new technologies related to microwave techniques, artificial intelligence, electronic and rocket technologies. The company’s most valuable asset is highly educated, experienced and ambitious team. SpaceForest is a space company providing various services to facilitate the commercial and scientiﬁc access to space. Its Experimental Rocket Department is currently focused on carrying out the Suborbital Inexpensive Rocket (SIR) project. The aim of this project is to develop a fully reusable suborbital rocket capable of carrying 50kg of payload to an altitude up to 150. SIR is designed to provide high performance and reliability at low cost for the suborbital space users.
Cooperation with European Space Agency lead to the development of the low-noise, high frequency generators, and provision of internally developed testing environment for the on-board data collecting system of the ESA’s JUICE mission.
We provide a wide range of services in the scope of design and prototyping of microwave equipment, precision mechanics and electronics, as well as telecommunication equipment repairs and launching experiments on board of internally developed experimental rockets.
We offer machining services (CNC) in various types of materials such as steel, aluminum, copper or composite materials. We specialize in designing and manufacturing precision electronic enclosures for the space industry.

Projects for ESA and ESS (described in "BigScience market experience").
Filter Tuning Software (FTS) – unique software for computer-aided filter tuning, basing on AI algorithms. It allows to speed up the filter tuning process significantly and presents an unprecedented tuning repeatability. FTS can be applied in the following areas: DVB, telecommunication, space technologies.
Automatic Filter Tuning System - a flexible filter tuning solution for fully automated tuning of filters with all types of screws (nutted and self-locking).
Fully autonomous tracking and data transmission system used for reliable, long-distance data collection from a rocket or other flying objects.
Controllable and recoverable suborbital rocket with hybrid engine SF1000 based on eco-logical propellants - project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. Project duration: 2018 – 2023.
The main objective of the project is to design and build first Polish suborbital rocket able to carry up to 50 kg of commercial payload to altitudes up to 150 km. The 11 meters rocket will be able to provide cost effective platform for micro-g environment researches.
