From SunSpace to Spaceteq

SunSpace applied to be placed under business rescue. The result of this process was that Sunspace ceased normal operations. Sunspace's intellectual property was procured by the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The former employees of SunSpace were given the opportunity for employment at Spaceteq, a new business unit in Denel Dynamics, a division of Denel SOC Ltd. The intellectual property acquired by the DST will be made available to Spaceteq.

Spaceteq became operational on the first of July 2013. It will use the IP from DST, the ex-Sunspace people, and the heritage from work previously done by Houwteq, as a solid foundation on which to build an organisation that will develop satellite systems for the South African Government and also for International Clients.
