Who we are

Cost-effective service to remove failed satellites and debris from space.

ClearSpace is a Spin-Off from the EPFL Space Center. The company founded by Luc Piguet, Muriel Richard & Catherine Johnson was born to host the design team for the CleanSpace One mission, out of the realization that the cost-effective in space removals is a critical building block of the future of space operations. The ClearSpace team unified around the CleanSpace One mission is focused on building a viable and affordable solution to remove failed satellites left in space and ensure the long-term sustainability of space operations..

The profound changes that the space industry is undergoing will provide substantial benefits to future generations. However, over the past few years we have come to the realization that without a cost-efficient solution for the removal of deserted satellites and other forsaken space debris, this future will not be sustainable.
