On Friday 28 October, all RISpace delegates are welcome on our Friday site visit.
We will be visiting the premises of Airbus DS in Stevenage.
Airbus Defence and Space teams focus on the design and manufacture of advanced satellites and systems for telecommunications, earth observation, and navigation and science programmes. They also support the UK’s military satellite communications services to the UK armed forces, including mobile voice, video, Internet and broadcast communications. Delivered through the Skynet 5 constellation, these services also meet the needs of other military and government users like NATO.
Important: To both sign up and to take part, you must be in possession of an RISpace delegate badge to be shown on both entry onto the bus and into Airbus DS. The badge can be of any type – standard, discount or a day ticket for any day of the conference. You must also bring along a form of photo ID.
A bus will pick up delegates outside of the Royal Society at 09:00 on Friday 28 October, returning for 18:00.
