Satellites, and more specifically the data that is being collected from them, are becoming an increasingly important means of observation globally, not only offering solutions for the betterment of life on earth, but also business opportunities across many sectors including energy, sustainable cities, smart grid, agriculture, marine, life sciences and transport.
The Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications, SoXSA, is engaging with organisations across these sectors to explore how satellite derived data can challenge conventional ideas and develop new innovative concepts, techniques and products in response to user needs.
Since launching, SoXSA has been building partnerships and accelerating the growth of satellite applications, bringing together company needs and challenges with expertise from the innovation landscape.
At its inaugural international Data.Space2017 Conference being held on the 1st & 2nd of February at the Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) in Glasgow, SoXSA will pull together data and service providers with users and markets to provide a unique networking opportunity identify the opportunities that exist for businesses today.
With a focus on the exploitation of new data sets, the agenda will include world class speakers such as Government ministers, the Director Generals of the European Marine Safety Agency and the UK Space Agency, as well as CEOs & founders of Spire, Planet, Descartes Labs, Clyde Space, Astra and Telespazio VEGA.
A host of small businesses will also be in attendance, such as Astrosat and Rezatec, as well as non-space companies and data users such as PTV Group, Ordnance Survey and PEW fisheries, as well as VC funders from the UK and USA.
The Civic Reception and Gala Dinner on the evening of the 1st February will offer a chance to meet and network informally with some of the leading minds in this field, whilst also touching base with peers and others who show an interest in data and its potential new applications.
