London Space Week Program

London Space Week is one of Europe’s major B2B Space events dedicated to space applications, launch vehicles, satellites and space related technologies.


9.30 – 10.15 Innovation in small satellites

Patrick WOOD • Group Managing Director • SSTL

10.15 – 11.00 CNES involvement in the (exciting!) challenge of space access innovation

The intervention will address CNES involvement – as space agency – to foster innovation in next generation of Rockets and Space Transportation, together with a view on France vision of upcoming strategic fields.”

Jérôme VILA • Assistant Director for the projects of the future • CNES

11.00 – 11.45 AIRBUS DEFENCE & SPACE

Innovation is an essential aspect of creating competitive advantage. In the space industry, however, it is not just a matter of being faster at innovation; there is a critical need to temper early adoption with the need for absolute reliability. Being too conservative means losing market share.

A number of examples of innovation at Airbus Defence and Space will be provided to demonstrate what can be achieved when innovation is introduced at the right time.

Mike HEALY • VP Procurement • Airbus Defence and Space

11.45 – 12.30 Industry 4.0 technology and the IIoT to create a rich digital context and weave the digital thread for automated and optimized decision making in composites manufacturing

Composite component fabrication requires real-time decisions based on a long and growing list of variables and constraints. As production volumes and complexity increase, suppliers are faced with more unforeseen problems, and have less time and ability to make optimized decisions.

Currently, integrating this vast and diverse amount of data into a global view of the process is very difficult; typically each data set is analyzed in its own software package, limiting the ability to integrate the multiple data types and detect inefficiencies and process issues that might trigger production delays. Integrating Intelligent, context-aware software based on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represents dramatic opportunities as new sensor technologies collect vast amounts of data in real-time, creating a rich digital-context thread that starts with design engineers and is continuously built through the entire lifecycle of the product.

This ‘digital thread’ weaves a single integrated stream of data that makes information from the product’s entire life cycle available and visible to all stakeholders. This includes –assets’ (pre-preg rolls, kits and assemblies) location, assets’ status and availability (including tools, machines, autoclaves and personnel), exposure time information of parts, kits and assemblies, as well as full genealogical information for each asset or resource, from the moment it was first created, throughout production and beyond into MRO. The digital thread model is enabled by the IIoT abilities and supports full traceability of each part, for later stage auditability and significantly shorter crisis management should a defect occur or be discovered along the way

Roberto SORDINI • Sales Manager • PADA ENGINEERING

14.45 – 15.00 Innovative Deployable Structures for the Space Industry
Increasing demands to achieve “more for less and quicker” have led to both new challenges and new opportunities for the global space industry. The challenge of so-called ‘New Space’ is to dramatically lower costs and compress lead times than those ever seen previously. The desire to use smaller, lower cost launch systems means an additional demand to extract more functionality from much smaller platforms. All spacecraft require deployable structures, such as panels and antennas to unlock the potential of a spacecraft once on orbit. All these structures must stow in the smallest possible form factor for launch and then unfurl reliably once on orbit to provide power, communication links and carry out a variety of mission functions. Oxford Space Systems is developing a new generation of space deployable structures, compatible with the demands of the global new space industry. Using conventional, as well as proprietary new materials such as flexible composites together with the skills of a globally recognized expert in origami, OSS is pioneering a range of highly stowage efficient, low complexity and lower cost deployables for the global industry.

Shefali SHARMA • Business Developper • Oxford Space Systems

15.00 – 15.45 Extending the life of satellites in orbit
In a landscape of increased competition, uncertain economic outlook and dynamic market conditions, satellite operators are keen to achieve fleet optimization and improve their cost and risk structure. Life extension of satellites in orbit represents such an opportunity, but holds some non-trivial challenges. Effective Space Solutions will shed light on its first life-extension mission plan, set to become a reality by 2019.

Shahida BARICK • Head of Satellite Operations • Effective Space



9.30 – 10.15 The European Space Agency

The European Space Agency is one of the few organisations in the world active in all space disciplines including space science, manned & robotic space exploration, launchers, earth observation, satellite navigation, space technology, space operations and satellite telecommunications. Whilst most of these are activities that ESA undertakes in our own right, satellite telecommunications is the exception where we instead support industrial companies’ with their own R &

Bob Waters is Head of Industrial Strategy at the UK Space Agency and is well acquainted with both the opportunities and the constraints faced by the UK Government as it sets out to support the sector. This includes a refreshed strategy for Innovation and Growth and the ever growing importance of widening international partnerships to encourage trade and investment – an area where he works closely with the Agency’s International Team and the Department for International Trade.

Bob WATERS • Head of Industrial Strategy • UK SPACE AGENCY

14.15 – 14.30 Implementing affordable smart factory processes

We hear a great deal about the ideals of a connected factory, smart manufacturing processes and Industry 4.0. But how much of this is within the reach of small and medium sized businesses? Is it really here today, or does it require long term, large scale investment only achievable by global, corporate manufacturing companies?

Alistair MORRIS • Sales Director • PRYOR MARKING
