Step 3 – share a few details about the sort of products and services you offer and the clients you work with. This section isn’t made public either – but helps us better understand who you are and what you do. You can use bullet points if you wish, or copy and paste some text from your website.

Step 5 – now it is time to add the details about your company that will be published on your public profile at satsearch.com. We call these profiles supplier hubs and they are the central point for thousands of space engineers and mission designers around the world to get details about your business.

First up is your logo – just upload an image file with a square or rectangle shape, and a file size of less than 1 MB.

Next, provide a one line description about what you do in the space industry. There is a hard limit of 150 characters (including spaces) so be concise and accurate. Think about what space engineers and mission designers will find interesting and valuable about your business – there’s a couple of examples in the form to help.

Finally, add a few keywords in the relevant box. Keywords are words or phrases that will be associated with your supplier hub on satsearch.com. They don’t show up on your page, but when a user types them into the search box (which is on every page of the site) and chooses to search in terms of supplier, rather than in terms of product, your hub will show up in the results.

Add your keywords and phrases one by one – pressing enter/return after each of them. They will display on the form each time they are added and you can remove any of them by clicking on the X.

Step 6 – share your (or a colleague’s) personal contact information so we can stay in touch. We’ll use this to inform you when your page is ready and to discuss anything else that’s important to your business on satsearch.

How to add your portfolio on satsearch

To give the global space engineering community the most accurate picture of what you can offer, satsearch enables you to create pages for each of your different products, services, and capabilities.

A good portfolio will be clearly structured, with a unique page for each different product model, service element, and/or company capability. If it has a SKU, can be purchased independently, or feature as a major line item on an invoice, it should have an individual web page on the satsearch marketplace.

You can add any of your individual capabilities to satsearch. We don’t just list commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components or standardized sub-system modules.

You can also add pages for professional services, software, bespoke engineering solutions, custom hardware development, analysis and qualification capabilities, facilities or equipment available for rent, reports, courses, and anything else you can offer the industry, on a commercial or non-commercial basis.

Short, basic pages can be set up for free on satsearch. If you’d like to find out how to get a more richly featured online portfolio and access to a variety of business development opportunities, click here to find out more about the Satsearch Membership Program.

Here’s how to quickly get free basic pages live for your portfolio:

Step 1click here to open the online form where you can add new pages to your portfolio.

Step 2 – add the text about your product in the first section. Start by typing in the first few letters of the name of your organization and click the right label when it shows up. If you haven’t yet added your company to the satsearch platform, you can do so at this link and by following the instructions above.

Next, add the name of your product or service. Be accurate but descriptive – consider what would help engineers find and understand your capability. It helps to take a look at how competing products are named on the website.

Then add a brief description that explains exactly what the product or service is. Ensure that you provide clear, concise, logical, and objective descriptions for each page you add, to help the market understand the value of what you offer.

Avoid hype and unsubstantiated claims (such as “the best product in the world”) – this will turn off savvy systems engineers and mission designers. Instead, try to generate interest and excitement in your portfolio. And note there is a 150 character hard limit, including spaces.

Finally, add a few keywords in the relevant box. Keywords are words or phrases that will be associated with your product/service page on satsearch.com. They don’t show up on the page, but when a user types them into the search box (which is on every page of the site) and chooses to search in terms of product, rather than in terms of supplier, your page will show up in the results.

Step 3 – upload an image and a datasheet for the product. The image field is mandatory – upload a good representative picture of your product in any standard image format, with a file size of 1 MB or less. If possible, use genuine photos of the product rather than renders or graphics – this adds credibility to your page.

The datasheet is optional but is highly advised to better explain to engineers the full quality and context of your offer. If you wish to make your datasheet public then you can upload it in this section as a PDF with a file size of less than 5 MB. It will be available for website users to download freely on your page, enhancing your marketing and visibility, and building your brand in the global industry.
