Tuesday 2 October 2018, 08:30 – 09:30
Location: Bremen Conference Center – DLR Hall

The global space industry has become entwined with other high tech sectors, which rely on satellites to provide enhanced imagery, weather data, communications, precision navigation, and timing to their customers. Space-based capabilities are now embedded in many popular terrestrial applications, enabling them to provide these enhanced services that improve lives.

In parallel, startups and maturing technology companies are leveraging advances in computing, analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, additive manufacturing, and robotics to improve their products offerings. These new applications are helping developed and developing economies alike to leapfrog old infrastructure, drive investment, growth, and create new jobs.

This plenary brings together speakers from high tech businesses who are leveraging space-based technology in their products and services. They will share stories about how they use space to improve applications and enhance services for users around the world.
