Time: 09:40 -10:40 GST
Location: Sheikh Rashid Hall F, Dubai World Trade Centre

The session will be organised with 3 fireside chats:

  • 1 SURVEILLANCE with the contribution of the company UNSEENLABS, specialist of accurate data on vessel positions and SHARE MY SPACE that has developed safe navigation solutions for satellite fleets.
  • 2 HABITAT with INTERSTELLAR LAB aiming to develop modules for sustainable living on earth and in space along with SPARTAN SPACE and its smart habitats for space and underwater exploration.
  • 3 SECURITY including CAILABS developing free space optical communication, SODERN expert in optronics and neutron technology, and MAGELLIUM.

The French GNF is part of the French Space Days organised by Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, in partnership with CNES, the UAE Space Agency, the Mohammed Bin Rachid Space Center (MBRSC) and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF). The objective is to strengthen commercial and strategic ties between the United Arab Emirates, a new challenger in the conquest of space, and France, a historical player, through technical contributions, business meetings and site visits.

The ambitious Emirati strategy supports an objective of economic diversification, international influence and the writing of a new national narrative in the longer term. It heralds an increase in demand for space services and products, stimulating the development of a public and private industrial offer rich in partnerships for France.
