Earth Observation Showcase – Emerging Applications Powered by Innovative Technologies

Background

The Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI) and the Satellite Applications Catapult will be hosting a joint technology showcase workshop on Thursday 26th October 2017 at Satellite Applications Catapult Harwell Campus, aiming to foster links between cutting-edge EO instrumentation specialists and users of both the data and downstream applications coming from these technologies.

The workshop will focus on the changing Earth Observation (EO) landscape from both an upstream and a downstream perspective, looking at current and upcoming technologies and applications, and considering market trends and how these might evolve by 2030.

Objectives

  • Provide delegates with a clear overview of the Earth Observation chain from upstream sensors through technology integration and data to downstream applications
  • Showcase the state of the art in EO technology including Copernicus, Earth Observation constellations enabled by small-satellites and EO data analysis trends.
  • Present emerging technologies and enabled applications
  • Foster knowledge-sharing, enabling the development of new market-facing EO technologies.

Key Note Speakers

CEOI and the Satellite Applications Catapult are delighted to announce key note speakers from the European Space Agency and from Earth-i, who will give an overview of the rapidly emerging landscape of satellite constellations.

These constellations are particularly interesting in the Earth Observation (EO) field as they are powered by highly innovative technologies and are enabling a wide range of new products, services, and applications.

The European Space Agency will talk about the European Copernicus constellation which is providing new data and services to governments, industry and a wide range of other organisations.

Earth-i will cover the rapidly emerging small satellite constellations and how they are transforming both the space sector and the services offered by wider industries and governments.

1:1 Sessions

We will be running 1:1 sessions with a range of speakers from the day. More information on who will be available to meet will be available nearer the day. Please indicate on your registration whether you would like us to email you with this information.
