Series 4

In this episode we’re kicking off a brand new series of In-Orbit recording on-location in the Catapult’s In-Orbit Servicing and Manufacturing facility, exploring robotics with our panel of experts.

The space economy in the UK is changing at a rapid pace. In-Orbit Servicing and Manufacturing – or IOSM – is set to shape this economy, and robotics will play a key role.

From servicing satellites in-orbit using autonomous robots to manufacturing large structures entirely in space, IOSM is where cutting-edge technology meets the vast expanse of space, but it’s capabilities here on Earth that ensure these in-space operations are successful.

For the first time we’re releasing a video version of the In-Orbit Podcast! See our guests sat alongside the technical equipment that enables us to test close-proximity operations and in-orbit servicing technologies. Visit our YouTube channel >>
