HOSTmi’s mission is to simplify space mission requirements management by introducing a customer-driven and user-centric transparent digital infrastructure. Our vision is to reduce space mission costs by simplifying mission management procedures and providing transparency. To achieve cost reduction, we aim to optimize and partially automate mission-related interactions between affiliates from carrier as well as from payload-providing teams.

HOSTmi is the first company offering digitally-supported solutions to optimize the highly engineering-intensive and complex requirements management of space missions; enabling searching, offering, and comparing different services ranging from hosted payload to launch services as well as enhancing the management of an entire space mission.

For payload owners, HOSTmi delivers the environment for central administration and knowledge management along with process-optimized data management, which simplifies overall processes and reduces costs. While for hosted payload and launch service providers HOSTmi’s solutions will transform the isolated value chains into a fully digitized value-creating network.
