Commercial Space Technologies Moscow Office – Launch Brokerage

CST’s native Moscow office team has developed its expertise in the marketing and brokerage of former Soviet launch vehicles (LVs) for over 30 years. In this time, CST has negotiated and procured launch vehicles for small satellite customers, having managed the interaction between launch provider and customer for 81 spacecraft. This has been achieved with the use of five different launch vehicles launched from three different launch sites, including the arrangement of the first Cosmos rocket launch to Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO), and the first commercial and SSO launch of the Dnepr rocket. Despite the retirement of certain former Soviet launch vehicles, CST continues to expand its offered inventory to include newly developed Russian launch vehicles, thus always maintaining its competitive and cost-effective edge.

Commercial Space Technologies – Trading Opportunities

With the contacts and experience that CST has gained in Europe, Russia and all over the world it is also able to offer unique trading opportunities, facilitating interactions on site with an international team. These techniques have also been applied by CST to manage satellite development projects, (such as Canopus) between Eastern and Western companies.
