RUAG Space becomes Beyond Gravity

Austria's largest space supplier, headquartered in Vienna-Meidling, has been operating as Beyond Gravity since this week. On 1 May, the company name also legally changes from RUAG Space to Beyond Gravity Austria.

Austria's largest space supplier has a new brand identity, Beyond Gravity, as of this week. On 1 May, the company name legally changed to Beyond Gravity Austria (previously RUAG Space). The Austrian space technology company is a market leader in the field of precise positioning of satellites in space. Almost all satellites of the European Space Agency (ESA) are protected from the extreme heat and cold in space of usually +/- 200 degrees Celsius by thermal insulation from the company. And mechanisms from Beyond Gravity precisely align electric satellite thrusters used, for example, in telecom satellite swarms in the booming New Space market.

New brand identity

With its new name and brand identity, the company aims to position itself more succinctly in the profoundly changing space market in order to make its comprehensive range of services even better known to customers. With around 230 employees, Beyond Gravity Austria is part of the international space supplier Beyond Gravity (formerly RUAG Space) based in Zurich, Switzerland. At Beyond Gravity, around 1600 employees develop and manufacture products for satellites and launch vehicles in a total of six countries (Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, Germany, USA and Finland). Beyond Gravity is the preferred supplier of structures for all types of launch vehicles and a leader in selected satellite products and constellations in the New Space sector. In 2021, the company generated sales of around CHF 319 million.
