U2Business 2018 at the University of Portsmouth

The UK is writing a new, dynamic chapter in the history of space thanks to the recent royal ascent of the Space Industry Bill.

The UK Space industry already employs 37,000 people and has a £11.1bn share of the global space market and will grow to £40bn by 2030 thanks to the UK’s long-standing expertise in satellite manufacture and data applications and our unique entrepreneurial outlook.

From location-based marketing to monitoring air pollution, talking on your mobile to knowing where your next taxi ride is, you are already using satellites over 30 times a day. So how are you using satellite data to help your business grow? Join this session to find out more.

This session is being delivered by Ann Swift, Innovation Fellow at the South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications which is based in the Institute of Industrial Research at the University of Portsmouth. It is funded by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the UK Space Agency.  Ann will present case studies and other examples of where businesses are using satellite data to help generate a new service or enhance existing products
