In January 2019, it was announced that Deep Space Industries - DSI - had been acquired by Bradford Space - another space technology company.

The firm provides technical resources, capabilities, and system integration required to discover, harvest, process, and market in-space resources. The company’s mission is to produce water, propellant, and building materials to serve markets in space, from extending the life and capabilities of commercial satellites to providing life support and power to new private-sector orbiting research stations. The company continues to work on its rocket engine and on the ongoing development of its deep space exploration platform scheduled for launch in 2020. The firm's suite of technologies including MeteorTM, a new launch-safe bi-propellant rocket engine to be released later in 2018, and the XplorerTM spacecraft, a deep space exploration platform scheduled for launch in 2020.
