Price/cost of entering typically space-related services is going down drastically, and thus we are drastically expanding the quantity of entities that may participate in the said market. And this is happening, we’re already observing that. When planning the business activities, companies such as Astri Polska are taking this ever changing reality into account.
In my humble opinion, there is one thing still missing, when it comes to the Polish market, we are still missing a major programme that could be run by the public administration, that could, in some way, make use of the satellite data, I did not want to say that it should force people to do so, but it should make use of the satellite data. And this does not refer to a programme that would be a training programme for the administration, as the public administration, at the operational level, is perfectly aware of how this data could be used, really appreciating it.
Downstream is a relevant part of the Polish Space Programme’s draft, and making use of satellite and space applications, space data. Here the question should be asked, whether the assumptions made within the programme would be met, meaning, whether the budgets that are assumed in the programme actually would be available. We agree to most of this document directly, that it is a very well directed document, however, there’s always a question concerning the money.
