About

Bryce Space and Technology is an analytic consulting firm for space and satellite, cyber, and R&D clients.

Who We Are

Unlike management consulting generalists, our domain focus enables us to offer our clients cutting-edge expertise and data. Our proprietary, research-based models predict critical outcomes in space and technology – satellite market share, launch pricing, technology forecasting accuracy, and the cost of moving up the TRL scale to name just a few. We apply interdisciplinary analytic skills combined with deep domain knowledge of complex technology industries to meet the needs of government and commercial clients.

We believe industry leaders and policy makers require objective, data-driven analysis, free of vested interests and pre-conceptions, to make the right decisions. Bryce cultivates a culture of engagement and partnership with our clients, whose success we take personally.

A brief introduction to the team

Bryce Space and Technology is an integrated team of analysts with career-long expertise in space, cyber, and advanced R&D.
