About Us

HEX20 is founded and run by a group of people passionate about outer space and its ever-expanding horizons. The same passion propels us in building satellite platforms, mission services, and their subsystems. We closely work with government-funded defense systems, commercial projects, and academic space missions. Lunar and Mars missions stand testimony to our technical expertise in defense and space exploration systems.

HEX20 is one of the nine global space startups to join Australia’s first space dedicated incubator program under The University of South Australia’s Innovation & Collaboration Centre (ICC) in the Venture Catalyst Space program, supported by the South Australian Government’s Space Innovation Fund.
