Next Generation Plenary: Small Sats – Involving Everyone through their Applications

Wednesday 3 October 2018, 08:30 – 09:30
Location: Bremen Conference Center – DLR Hall

Space Satellites are making the vision of a more diverse space sector a reality today. The expanding pool of developers are finding more diverse ways of using satellites well beyond what was imagined a few years ago. Through new and innovative applications, the global space network will affect the lives of people around the world. The expanding knowledge base and reduced cost of engagement are enabling the Next Generation to be in the front ranks of the industrial expansion regardless of generation, gender, or geography. Here they have the opportunity to be leaders in finding new ways to use space resources to affect life on earth. In this plenary, students and young professionals will bring the story of how they are engaged in developing or using these applications.

The 69th IAC brings together another edition of the Next Generation Plenary. This year, we are pleased to introduce 6 panelists from around the world that are making an impact. The panelists will address how they expect to advance knowledge, improve conditions, protect life and property, and increase prosperity for an expanding portion of the global population through the use of Small Sats.
