Matching Space Capability to the Needs of Rail Freight and Infrastructure – Now and Next

2 October 9:30am-13:00pm

Registration for this event has now closed. If you have any questions contact

The Satellite Applications Catapult on behalf of the UK Space Agency invites key rail stakeholders and Space Sector SMEs to a workshop at their state-of-the-art facility, at Harwell, Oxfordshire on Wednesday 2nd October.

The purpose is to:

  1. Demonstrate to a selected UK rail audience, the current and upcoming capabilities of the UK’s cutting-edge space sector.
  2. Confirm the relevant needs of rail stakeholders for today and tomorrow.
  3. Explore the most promising matches between capability and need.

What next?

  1. The outputs will then be quickly taken forward in a series of deep dives to fully define and validate the opportunities.
  2. Following this, selected stakeholders will be invited to a commercialisation workshop to close the gap between verified opportunity and investable solution.

What does success look like?

Anything from new R&D initiatives to here-and-now procurement and partnering opportunities.

What can space do?

Space capabilities broadly fall into three categories:

  • Connect – communications, data and internet of things
  • Earth Observation – insight on geographic locations
  • Track – finding and tracking moving objects

All underpinned by today’s fast-moving technologies such as cyber security, big data, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things.

Did you know?

Satellite costs are plummeting. This is making cutting edge capabilities available on a commercial basis that can compete or even beat terrestrial solutions.

Imagine – your own dedicated satellite that cost-effectively tracks your assets’ condition, location and status.

Imagine – continuous communications at a cost and bandwidth to rival 5G.

Imagine – emissions monitoring systems that automatically optimise your carbon footprint

Wednesday 2nd October 2019 at 09:30 – 13:00 – we look forward to seeing you!
