Another UK based form:

Newton Launch Systems, working under sub-contract to Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), is undertaking a study into the technical and economic feasibility of a UK-based small satellite launcher. The project is part of a broader initiative funded by the United Kingdom Space Agency (UKSA) under the Space Collaborative Innovation Team Initiative (Space CITI), which has brought together a range of expertise from partners including London Economics, Reaction Engines, Commercial Space Technologies and other consultants within the UK space industry. Space CITI is a pilot programme designed to support accelerated innovation and economic growth and is aligned to the objectives and growth targets as outlined by the Space Innovation and Growth Strategy (IGS).

Newton’s contribution to the project is focused on the following areas:

An analysis into the small satellite launch market (up to 150kg mass)
A survey of previous small launcher studies
An investigation into the technical and economic feasibility of a commercial UK-based small satellite launcher
To learn more about the Space CITI project, please visit the UKSA website at: http://www.bis.gov.uk/ukspaceagency/news-and-events

Update:
Newton Launch Systems is now in its 3rd year of working with the School of Aerospace & Aircraft Engineering in Kingston University London’s Science, Technology & Computing Faculty. Newton directors initially provided some project guidance in 2011, followed by co-supervision of 5 individual and group projects in 2012-2013.
