Traditionally satellites have been very expensive, even the smallest commercial satellites like Cubesats cost six-figure amounts to build and launch. Alba Orbital develop pico-Satellites which weigh <1kg, and cost significantly less. While, offering almost all of the advantages of a CubeSat. Being leaders in this niche, they are closely partnered with ESA and provide research in this area to them.
