Back in 1998, we aimed for the stars and launched into orbit.
We’ve been coding for the space industry since Critical Software began. In fact, NASA and the European Space Agency were some of our first customers. Whether it’s needed for observing Earth or it’s destined for Mars, we know how to create breath-taking, powerful software that’s reliable and cost-effective.
Through out-of-this-world testing, we make sure our code is perfect, well before countdown begins. From on-board systems development to specialised services – like independent product assurance, for example – our engineers have got what it takes to create customised high-integrity software solutions using the best available technologies and modelling methodologies.
ESA, NASA and Airbus Defence & Space trust us, so you know we’re ready for launch.

Our software orbits Earth
Conquering theRed Planet.
The ExoMars-TGO spacecraft that left Earth in 2016 has expanded scientific understanding of the Red Planet. We worked on the central software of this intrepid exploration unit, sent to investigate the Martian environment, closely followed by the impressive Mars Rover vehicle.
Closer to the Sun than ever before.
ESA’s next generation sun explorer is the result of a collaboration with NASA. It's built to get up close and personal with our closest star. We’ve been working with Airbus Defence & Space UK on this clever bit of kit, from specification and design to development and testing.
