Andøya Space Center (ASC)

The very first sounding rocket launch from Andøya Space Center (ASC) occurred in 1962. Since then ASC has launched thousands of rockets and balloons for scientists and space agencies from all over the world. ASC has two launch sites, one at Andøya and one at Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. Our rocket business has a long-term goal of launching satellites in to polar low Earth orbit.

ASC is also operating a lidar observatory, and is host to a large array of ground based scientific instruments scattered around the island of Andøya.

We have built one of the largest civilian UAVs, and has performed several BVLOS flights (Beyond Visual Line of Sight). Our UAV business is expanding in to rotorcraft as well.

ASC has two daughter companies; Andøya Test Center (ATC) which performs technical and operational tests of military technology, and Norwegian Center for Space Related Education (NAROM) which educates thousands of students every year.
