Catapult Updates:

Sa’ad Hamoud, International Partnerships and Finance Manager, Satellite Applications Catapult

Jodie Major, Project Manager for AID-GI, Satellite Applications Catapult

I’m the Project Manager for the Artificial Intelligence Detection of Gastro-Intestinal Diseases (AID-GI) project. For this project, we are partners to Corporate Health and the University of Barcelona to make capsule endoscopy more efficient.
Our role in the project is to create and test the data transfer element, to ensure patients data can be transferred from rural locations to general hospitals. Testing for the data transfer element will take place at our 5G Step-out Centre at Westcott Venture Park.
Following this project, we are looking for opportunities to roll out in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to follow Scotland’s lead.

Upcoming Events:

Jakub Janas, Business Development Manager, Cosmonauts

At Cosmonauts, we specialise at putting the right people in the same room. This September (13th) in London we will organise ConfEx that will gather space industry leaders, business investors, SMEs, startups, government and academia representatives.

Our aim is to explore topics across the future business of space including Collaborative Initiatives, Law & IP, Space Finance & Investment, Insurance, Cyber Security and everything in between. Expect 200+ international delegates, 30+ speakers, 15+ exhibitors.

If you’d like to know more, work together, speak at the conference or promote your business, just meet me at the next Satuccino event (June). will take place in the Science Museum’s newly renovated Illuminate Venue (South Kensington, London). You can find more information at

Realising the opportunities of Satellite Applications from the South Coast

The South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications brings together academics, industrial, government and third sector partners to form a world-leading cluster in satellite applications, delivering widespread technological and economic benefits for the South Coast region.

The Centre aims to lower the entry barriers to get more SMEs engaging with the satellite industry, leveraging R&D and other funding, identifying and commissioning new programmes and projects to support SMEs using satellite technology, particularly those interested in Transport & Logistics, Autonomous Systems and Offshore Assets; supported by Communications, Earth Observations & Navigation, and Data Analytics & AI.

This event on the 17th of June will provide an opportunity to hear more about the programme, network with leading organisations and partners, and learn more about how satellite applications can enable solutions for your business.

Funding Opportunities:

Tim Just, Head of Space, Innovate UK

Andy Bennett, Space and Geospatial Knowledge Transfer Manager

The Knowledge Transfer Network are running a Geospatial Insights Special Interest Group (SIG) with the aim to pioneer broader access to and smarter use of geospatial data to grow new commercial services providing actionable insight. We will be bringing together our collective expertise in Earth Observation, GNSS, AI, Sensors, Internet of Things, Industrial Maths, Data Visualisation and market user sectors such as Agri-Food, Infrastructure, Health, Finance and Transport in a series of “innovation cycles” that will include cross sector workshops and collaborative activities. We will be running mathematics study groups, data workshops and potentially a geospatial mission and investment showcase as part of the programme of work, but the main focus will be on bringing challenge owners together with the geospatial community.

We are running an investment programme in collaboration with Geovation to support companies looking to raise funds. Together we’ll help you better understand the funding landscape, from pre-seed to Series A and beyond, and provide guidance on how to become investment ready, culminating with the opportunity to pitch direct to a number of pre-selected investors. Deadline 7th June.

Jean-Paul Ludig, Crypta Labs

Crypta Labs are a London-based Quantum Security Hardware start-up. We have developed a novel way to generate random numbers from the inherent randomness of photons at a quantum level. Our quantum random number generator (QRNG) is far more robust and less vulnerable to external influences that other designs. We have a working QRNG attached to a phone sleeve and we are working on integrating it into a Hardware Security Module which we have build for the connected vehicles market.

We also believe that our QRNG will be resilient enough for space applications and so we are taking our first small steps towards getting it space qualified.
