As part of the UKSA funded Space Enterprise Ecosystem Development Project, the Satellite Applications Catapult and Grey Consultants are collaborating with The University of Glasgow to host a Satellite 101: Launch and Propulsion hybrid webinar.


  • Introductory Presentation by Adam Baker – 10 minutes

“Space Transportation encompasses both the delivery of objects (people, spacecraft, consumables) into Earth orbit, and the transfer of objects already in orbit from one location to another. Using case studies and applications, this session will explore different types of propulsion and their applications, providing an overview of the benefits of propulsion and launch technologies to the UK. We will cover key aspects of launch technologies such as costs, and introduce the UK Space Propulsion Working Group, before exploring the future of space propulsion and launch vehicle solutions.”

  • Example Case Study: Patrick Harkness at the University of Glasgow – 15 minutes
  • Example Case Study: Launch & Propulsion Company (TBC) – 15 minutes
  • Q&A consisting of pre-submitted live questions – 20 minutes
