Satellite Transport & Pre-launch Risks

We work closely with this highly professional and performance driven sector to deliver innovative solutions to manufacturers and operators alike, covering satellites, launch vehicles and related ground equipment. Key factors to consider are:

Specialist claims knowledge: Potentially complex claims require a deep understanding of this industry and its contractual obligations.

Understanding the extent of cover and playing the markets: Does a satellite stock throughput placement provide the best seamless policy solution or is it preferable to choose cover along the lines of a more traditional non marine / marine policy format?

Pushing for wider cover: Influencing the cargo market to provide innovative solutions including “new” coverage options.

Technical capability: Dovetailing the separate placements with non marine or launch policies.

One size does not fit all: Due to the number of parties involved in the launch of each satellite, contracts can vary considerably requiring a consultative approach.
