New Space – Rocking Earth Observation

Tuesday 2 October 2018, 17:05 – 17:50
Location: Bremen Conference Center – CCB Hansesaal

Space based Earth observation has become a unique success story, as evidenced by the European Copernicus programme. However, Earth observation is currently undergoing fundamental changes that epitomise the New Space approach and that are addressed by the concept of Space 4.0. Major trends comprise the exponential growth in availability of Earth Observation data; the impact of big data and cloud processing, novel data analytics and the use of platform solutions. This has led to significant overlap between Earth observation and the domains of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning. Further technological trends are constituted by satellite constellations – often of small and low cost sensors – , formation flying and convoys, as well as by High Altitude Platforms.

The event will inform the wider space community about these structural changes and offer the possibility to discuss the resulting implications. Contributions will be provided by speakers from various domains like public institutions, commercial entities and industry.
