Attend PSW’s conferences to get a glimpse into the Future of The Space Industry! Please, submit your topic for the Conferences’ Program before January 31st, 2023.
During this interactive conference, we will focus on your questions about the sensitive topic of law in the space industry. Laws, regulations and contractual matters are often perceived only as constraints, but they can also help you protect and develop your space business. Join us to better understand these challenges and take advantage of new opportunities!
Commercial-off-the-shelf photonic components designed for datacentre applications do not satisfy the environmental requirements of space applications. To deploy photonic components into the harsh environment of space, we developed ruggedized fibre-optic transceiver and optical amplifier modules to support both on-board fibre-optic datalinks as well as inter-satellite free-space-optical (FSO) communications. We present parallel optical transceiver components (to support data rates up to 25 Gbps per fibre) for high-density onboard spacecraft datalinks. Based on a novel hermetic opto-electronic hybrid construction, these components utilize MTP 12-fibre optical and high-speed electrical connectors for ease of installation and removal whilst surviving high levels of shock and vibration. The efficient heatsinking of the lasers, photodiodes and integrated amplifier circuits permits operation up to 85C case temperature while maintaining the low device junction temperatures required for high reliability. We also present dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) compatible transceivers on the ITU grid to support multi-rate FSO systems from < 1 Gbps to 12.5 Gbps. These transceivers permit user optimization of link parameters to attain highest performance in amplified systems. High-power Erbium-Ytterbium booster optical amplifiers up to 8W output power, and low-noise Erbium pre-amplifiers, in the 1540-1565 nm wavelength band, have also been developed and tested in a space vacuum environment. We performed reliability and environmental testing to demonstrate that these modules meet or exceed many of the requirements of space applications.
Later this year, the UK will become the first nation in Europe to achieve commercial small satellite launch, firmly establishing the UK as one of the most innovative and attractive space economies in the world. Matt Archer, Director of Commercial Spaceflight at the UK Space Agency will give an overview of what makes the UK Europe’s most attractive launch destination and the exciting commercial opportunities this presents for companies from across the world.
Is the key to a sustainable future locked up in Space? Satellites are producing a constant pipeline of earth observation data, but discovering the insights to enable power line protection or greenhouse gas monitoring is like finding a needle in a haystack. In this session you will learn how AWS and Kayrros are using the cloud to rapidly transform Space data into timely, specific, and actionable insights to improve life on Earth. Guido Baraglia, Sales Director AWS. Antoine Rostand, is the President and Co-Founder Kayrros. Kayrros integrates satellite imagery, unconventional data and market information to deliver customer-specific solutions for decision-making in the energy, natural resource and industrial markets, while empowering stakeholders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and navigate climate and energy-transition risks.
The radio spectrum for satellite communication is becoming saturated, and the need for faster and more secure communication is gaining importance. Consequently, the industry has in the early 2000s started turning toward laser-based communication as an alternative. Initially aimed at inter-satellite links, laser communication systems today are being developed that allow high-speed space to ground communication. An essential aspect of the mature commercial application of satellite-ground laster communications is efficient control, monitoring, and operation of the new generation of Optical Ground Stations (OGS), and it requires pioneering technology. At the roundtable discussion, we’re going to address the challenges related to: keeping sufficient uptime, ensuring global coverage and seamless satellite communication over distributed networks of stations, remote handling, troubleshooting, and management aspects of OGS networks.
In satellite-based communications, surface, airborne, and space-based radars, next-generation systems utilizing high frequency microwave bands in phased array applications require low signal loss combined with high phase stability. For many years, Polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE), or Teflon™ has been widely used in coaxial lines due to its low attenuation and excellent electrical and mechanical properties. However, at approximately 18°C, PTFE undergoes a structural transition altering the dielectric constant of the material and resulting in a substantial change in the delay of the transmitted signal (Teflon™ Knee). The flexible CT cable portfolio can be used in high temperature environments up to 200°C and its prominent characteristic is the phase stability versus temperature behavior, as these assemblies utilize a specifically designed Fluoropolymer to create a truly tradeoff-free coaxial cable transmission line. Further developments of the CT coaxial cables ensure that the construction and interfaces are specifically designed for the environmental conditions of space applications.

Fiber optics technology is the must-have solution for high-performance digital processing systems. Fueled by a constant demand for high-speed internet access, data bandwidth, and high-definition real-time imaging - this innovation is enabling a new future in communications. In this webinar, TE will discuss the critical role of fiber optics technology in electronic packaging for satellites in low earth and geostationary orbit (LEO and GEO). Designers will learn how combining multi-fiber connectivity and optical flex circuits allows access to state-of-the-art optical performances, all while cutting weight and packaging size.
Focus on the fundraising process and its best pratices.
We are a leading regional space hub in the UK. Recognised for innovation and strengthened by one of the most capable aerospace clusters in the world. Bristol & Bath is home to a diverse space sector, with multi-national and SME companies working across the space supply chain. Yvonne Elsorougi, Aerospace and Advanced Engineering Sector Specialist, will be discussing the West of England’s key capabilities and opportunities, and why the space sector is choosing to set up operations here.
Karl Kaas, CEO and owner of Space Inventor will present a scalable and modular platform that accommodates satellites from 10 to 150 kilograms suitable for both Low Earth Orbit and Geostationary orbit.
There are well known methods to develop a system like a satellite with all his subsystems. But how to implement those methods within the own company to come to an optimal workflow? The realization of this requests is not easy! There are different disciplines participating at the process from the first idea of the project down to the manufacturing needs. All of them need information and want to provide their data and deliverables to their customers. The cooperative platform Engineering Base and Aucotec support you to optimize your workflow and to increase efficiency and quality in your projects.
