Space Technology Showcase, November 2014
Space Technology Showcase
The Centre for EO Instrumentation and Space Technology (CEOI-ST) hosted its Fourth Biennial Technology Showcase on Thursday 13th November 2014 in London. The Showcase featured the practical outcomes of many years of research, discussing the installations, hardware, software, and results of very different types of Sensor and Instrument Technologies. The Showcase also highlighted new research programmes underway. There were opportunities for attendees to see some of the developments, and to meet the teams.
The presentations from the Showcase are now available to download.
- Welcome (Mick Johnson, CEOI-ST Director)
- Optical and Quantum Technologies for Earth Observation at the European Space Agency (Bruno Leone - ESA)
- Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar technologies and product generation – Relevance to Spaceborne Systems (Geoff Burbidge - Airbus DS Ltd)
- Adhesive free bonding: from academic origin to industrial application (Christian Killow - University of Glasgow)
- UK Technology Development for Spaceborne Atmospheric Limb-Sounding Missions (Brian Moyna - STFC RALSpace)
- New UK developments in THz technology for Earth observation (Edmund Linfield - University of Leeds & Simon Rea - STFC RALSpace)
- ESA Technology Transfer Activities within the UK (Matthew Edwards - ESA TTO)
The CEOI-ST has a vision to develop and strengthen UK expertise and capabilities in Earth observation (EO) instruments and works to position the UK to win leading roles in future international space programmes. The programme supports mainstream projects and smaller ‘seedcorn’ projects, both selected through Open Calls to the EO community.
However, although the technical drive has been to produce instruments for space, in many cases the resulting technologies have non-space applications. A number of sectors which could be potential beneficiaries of such technologies include healthcare, defence and security, analytical instrumentation, marine industries and environmental.
The event was open to all interested parties and aimed to:
- Highlight collaborative opportunities emanating from remote sensing technologies in space
- Outline the particular needs in Earth Observation for spin-in technologies
- Showcase a number of CEOI projects
The format for this one day event included a schedule of formal presentations – outlining technology needs and collaborative opportunities and several of the CEOI-ST projects. Another key feature was the exhibition element, showcasing CEOI-ST projects
Benefits of attending:
- Hear from leaders in the Earth observation industry about the knowledge exchange potential of the technologies
- Learn about the latest developments in Earth Observation instrumentation and their relevance to other areas, as well as potential technology needs
- See first-hand the CEOI funded technologies and talk to project managers at the showcase exhibition
- Network within this growing and vibrant community and meet individuals from other industries and institutions
