With a revenue of £11bn, the UK space industry has been growing consistently at a compound rate of 8.6% since 2008. Industry and Government ambition is to grow the size of the industry to £40bn by 2030 representing a 10% share of the global market. This ambitious target is rooted in the multitude of innovative developments in satellite technology coming down the line - from the use of higher (millimetre wave) frequencies and the associated bandwidths and speeds delivered to the exciting combinations of applications in satellite-based communications, navigation and imaging.
The conference, being delivered in conjunction with UKSpace is aimed at exploring how these innovations are finding applications not only in the ‘traditional’ sectors of broadcasting, communications navigation, earth observation and defence, but across the wider economy from transport to healthcare. As UK’s trade association for the digital industries, we not only have active industrial communities in the satellite sector but also across the wider digital economy. We are ideally placed to stimulate the necessary interactions between sectors that will deliver growth and productivity both for the satellite industry and wider technology sectors.
This conference will be of interest to those working in:
• the space sector with an interest in innovative developments and opportunities in wider markets
• a non-space sector curious about exploring how satellite applications could add value to your field, or indeed
• a policy maker and interested in how space applications could enhance your policy areas
Attendance is free to techUK members and public sector staff. A fee of £130+VAT for non-member company staff will apply. Book here.
We have five complimentary places for Cambridge Wireless members (restricted to one per company and who are not techUK members), if you are interested in attending please email Zahid.Ghadialy@techUK.org.
