- EO Cafe: Leveraging EO services to help countries monitor SDGson 24/11/2020 at 12:58
Dec. 03, 2020Thursday 3rd of December 2020, 16:00-16:45 CET The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a universal development agenda for all countries and stakeholders to use as a blueprint of actions for social inclusion, environmental sustainability and economic development. The agenda is driven by seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), associated Targets, and a Global Indicator Framework. Collectively, these elements enable countries and the global community to measure, manage, and monitor progress on economic, social and environmental sustainability. The European Earth Observation (EO) private sector can help achieve the SDGs by providing critical information on agricultural and rural development, water resource management, climate resilience, forest management, disaster risk reduction, coastal management, energy and extractives, urban development, and many other sectors. The EO value added industry can play an insightful role in supporting countries defining their targets, planning their interventions, monitoring progress and reporting to the Global Indicator Framework, which will collectively contribute toward achieving the SDGs. Benefits for countries includes, among others: upgrading efficiency and effectiveness of public services, evaluating impacts across sectors and regions, monitoring change over time in a consistent and standardized manner, increasing transparency, improve accountability, facilitating better information-sharing within government, improving the cycle stages (plan, do, check, act, review). If you want to know more about how Earth Observation contributes to the monitoring and reporting of the SDGs, please join us during our next EOcafe on 3rd of December 2020 at 16:00-17:00 (CET). In this EOcafe we will discuss all together the following: How can the EO private sector be engaged in the 2030 agenda on sustainable development and encouraged to customize their services to support the realisation of the SDGs? How can existing EO operational services be leveraged to create sustainable solutions for countries and local communities? How do can the EO services be made sustainable up to 2030 and beyond? What are the most effective ways to encourage industry contribution to support on the monitoring and reporting of the SDGs? How can EO industry engage more effectively with custodian agencies? Our host, Geoff SAWYER, EARSC’s Strategic Advisor and former Secretary General will exchange with three special guests: International perspective: Greg Scott, Inter-Regional Advisor on Global Geospatial Information Management in the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) European perspective: Marc Paganini, Technical Officer in the Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes at the European Space Agency (ESA) National perspective: Kevin McCormack, Senior Statistician, Central Statistics Office, Ireland Registration: This webinar is open to ALL but priority will be given to EARSC members. Registration is free but compulsory. Please click on the following link to register by the 3rd of December at 11:00 (CET). EOcafe Registration Please note this is a virtual event! The details will be sent on Thursday 3rd of December by noon. EOcafe is part of a series of EARSC meetings that offer timely, relevant, and practical information on a broad variety of topics related to the EO sector. Join us every two weeks to discuss and network while enjoying a cup of coffee with friends.
- The Space Disposal and Debris Mitigation Conferenceon 24/11/2020 at 12:54
Mar. 09, 2021 → Mar. 10, 2021We have now entered a new space age where the volume of objects in orbit and funding to enable new constellations is extremely high. As we pioneer into this space frontier, one of the most considerable challenges is the protection of its environment. Designing targeted deorbit methodologies is critical to maintaining the scale of satellite deployment our industry is making. While mission disposal is important, it remains a highly complex design confrontation. Technologies such as tethering, propulsion, drag or other traditional methods battle as the superior ROI for end users. Additionally, in much the same spirit as the age-old hiking principle, Deorbit Space Policy tends to be adopting the adage “pack it in, pack it out.” This virtual summit of speakers will cover all these issues in a flagship conference on orbital Waste Disposal and debris mitigation.
- NewSpace Industrializationon 24/11/2020 at 12:53
Jan. 12, 2021 → Jan. 13, 2021In the summer of 2020 the US Space Force, Air Force Research Laboratory, and Defense Innovation Unit published a report on the importance of establishing an industrial base to sustain US economic and military leadership in space. Shortly after, Deloitte announced a memorandum of understanding to develop a master plan that identifies the required infrastructure, human capital development, governance and financing necessary to support the United States Space Force mission and position California as a global leader in the future of the commercial space industry. The next space industrial base is headed to southern California. While innovative technologies, commercial applications, and new business models drive the commercial space economy, return on investment is by and large realized by well-established aerospace primes and select NewSpace companies. For NewSpace startups to experience the same ROI the industry itself must continue to develop. For new players to succeed and grow from startup to maturity there must be a better marketplace, increased demand, and greater economies of scale. This online event will bring together leaders in NewSpace for an in-depth executive discussion on how to establish a sound NewSpace industrial base.
- Introduction to Thermal Vacuum Testing and Vacuum Science in the Aerospace Industryon 24/11/2020 at 12:52
Jan. 19, 2021 → Jan. 20, 2021Thermal vacuum testing is an essential component of spacecraft testing, helping to ensure launch survivability, improve satellite reliability, and establish a path to flight heritage. This course seeks to provide an in-depth understanding of the goals and requirements of thermal vacuum testing for satellites and satellite components, as well as establishing an educational foundation of the science and technology involved in conducting thermal vacuum testing. By making the underlying science approachable, this course will allow lab managers, engineers, technicians, and mission planners to better understand test requirements and determine the best methods to implement thermal vacuum testing. The course will first provide an overview of typical satellite test requirements, and a comprehensive review of vacuum bake-out, thermal vacuum cycling, and thermal vacuum balance testing. This class will then provide a detailed framework of the vacuum science needed to understand thermal vacuum testing. Finally, a review of vacuum and analysis hardware will be presented with a goal of allowing course-takers to identify the test platform needed to achieve both specific program requirements and overall mission success.
