ABOUT US

OUR AFRICAN HERITAGE

Our name, Amaya, stems from “Tsamaya”, which is a philosophy of South African Football that recognises and expresses our mentality of creative, skilful, and joyful expression of flair and individual brilliance that is celebrated within the collective; where rich talent, skill and individual brilliance must produce game-breaking moments against well organised defensive patterns. Amaya Space is a leading nanosatellite-focused space manufacturing and services company on the African continent with its sights set on delivering game-changing and innovative solutions.

Amaya Space (Pty) Ltd has the potential to become a multi-billion Rand space company that can transform the industry. Africa has launched 1% of global cube satellites which means that Africa is at risk of falling behind. If this does not change then, South Africa will miss out on many of the opportunities that space infrastructure and technology could unlock to improve the quality of life for the ordinary South African and to meet social needs. The local and global markets do not have a credible African cube satellite offering to consider for products and services. Amaya Space will solve this problem.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

As a spin-out company of the vibrant satellite programme of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Amaya Space commercialises the innovative nanosatellite communications solutions as well as complete missions that have been developed at CPUT over the past 10 years.

With CPUT, we have already launched a satellite and will launch our second very soon. Our technology is at the forefront of the industry. So are our experts. Alive with African Ingenuity, Amaya Space strives for Africa to become a global player within the satellite industry, and not mere consumers of space-based services.
