Going Into Space

Date: 6th July 2023
Location: Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, Milton Keynes

Design, Simulation & Metrology SIG

Ever wondered how to get into space?

The UK’s space sector has been growing at pace over the past decade, impacting all parts of the UK economy, national security and day to day life. It is an exciting globally competitive high-growth sector, which is expected to continue to expand exponentially.

But with little or no background in the industry, how does any company manage to get a foothold, or even find their own successful path to becoming a supplier in the space sector?

Our Design, Simulation and Metrology (DSM) event provided a platform for some of those who’ve already trodden that path, and they shared their insights on their personal journeys into space, on all kinds of topics from how to submit a successful bid, to the latest developments and opportunities in the field.

With presentations and case studies, our expert speakers covered space applications, satellite communications, new technologies, space manufacturing – and how to get started.

 

Our speakers included:

Rob Rowsell (Engineering Director, Wirth Research)

Dom Holmes (Development Test Engineer, Oxford Space Systems)

Henny Sands (Head of Telecoms Operational Strategy and Delivery, UK Space Agency)

Alex Goodhand (Manufacturing Engineer, Satellite Applications Catapult)

Martin Lee (Airbus Defence and Space, Programme Procurement Manager)

Jamie Yeomans (Account Manager, Altair)
