Tuesday 24 October 2017

The first full day of Reinventing Space 2017 is dedicated to technology and Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

Papers are focused on the new services and commercial opportunities that are under-development for our Near Earth Environment.

From mega-constellations that will deliver global high-speed internet to on-orbit servicing and commercial debris removal missions, commercial expansion of our Near Earth Environment has great potential over the upcoming years.

11:40 PANEL: DISRUPTION AS A REINVENTING SPACE FORCE
The theory of disruptive technologies explains the evolution of technologies that disturb the status quo of both dominant technology platforms and competitive market layouts. The rise of innovative new businesses in the space industry has ushered in a disruptive realignment that is causing legacy space companies to struggle to remain relevant. In the face of this serious competition, legacy space companies need to alter their strategies in response to the changing market or succumb.This panel will explore a few of the disruptive technologies in the space industry. These disruptive technology are being driven by the so called “democratisation of space” resulting in the emergence of a mass consumer market which is contrary to the traditional low volume, high cost, government dominated space sector.

17:55 PANEL: SMALL SATELLITES AND SPACE COMMERCIALISATION
In recent years interest in commercial space missions has picked up again, after a large scale deployment of various global LEO communication systems in the late 1990’s. The focus for commercialisation now includes various forms of high speed LEOcomms, M2M/IOTwhich, Earth Observation, ship & aircraft tracking, and various more novel and niche applications. This has all been made possible by the availability of reliable and cost-effective small satellites, and the fact that groups and constellations of such spacecraft can provide capabilities which cannot be achieved with single spacecraft whatever their size. This panel reviews the sector from the perspective of the companies involved in this revolution, considering the opportunities, the challenges, and how these initiatives are changing the balance of the space industry.
