New recruits with skills in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are in high demand to harness the benefits of emerging technologies in the UK space sector, according to a new survey.


The latest research into space skills across businesses, government and academia shows that nearly all space organisations experience some skills-related issues (95%), well over a third (37%) are missing expertise in software and data analysis, and nearly a quarter (21%) are expressing the need for AI and machine learning specifically, higher than any other technical area.


According to the UK Space Agency’s Space Sector Skills Survey 2023 – developed in partnership with the Space Skills Alliance and know.space - software and data analysis accounted for half of all vacancies across the sector.
