CONTINENTAL ENGINEERING SERVICES
From Auto to Space – How Automotive eco-system can support constellation satellite break through
Automotive electronics industry developed during the last 40 years a worldwide high-tech, high-volume, high quality and affordable eco system.
The satellite industry is on the way to define "new space" with large constellation. This disruptive concep is a major breakthrough in the design and production of large numbers of satellites with smaller size and lower duration life.
To reach the best cost with zero defect , automotive electronics develop best practices :
- Quality of automotive electronic components data base
- Statistical process control of all assembly steps
- Mechatronic integration of electronic
- Robust test engineering
- Affordable precise mechanical parts
Synergies between automotive and space are more than welcome.
Let’s explore during this workshop some of low hanging fruits Continental Engineering Services can provide with its new aerospace segment.

Emergency mapping with long-range UAV for the European Commission (Copernicus Programme)
DT18 and multispectral sensor DT-4Bands have been used for a mission consisting in covering 10 km² with 3 UAV flights (7364 RGB / NIR images, 16 GCP, 8 cm RMS error).
Copernicus is a European programme monitoring the Earth. Delair -Tech is the UAV Company that has been officially selected by the European Commission for a four-year pilot project to assess the potential role of unmanned aerial platforms in emergency situations. The mine of Acquaresi is one of the most important sites in Sardinia. With the closure of the mine 10 years ago, following the gradual raising the water to the height +90 m above sea level, there was a sudden flooding of the mine voids, with an intensification of instability phenomena. The mine of Acquaresi is one of the most important sites in Sardinia. With the closure of the mine 10 years ago, following the gradual raising the water to the height +90 m above sea level, there was a sudden flooding of the mine voids, with an intensification of instability phenomena. This, caused various phenomena of collapse, often observed at the surface with the appearance of openings and extensive fractures along the main areas. The area is considered very dangerous and not easily accessible. The UAV flight is an ideal solution to survey the area every 3 months without putting surveyors at risk.
Delair Tech DT18 UAV is the most advance solution for the most demanding and critical mission. The European Commission selected Delair Tech to demonstrate the potential role of unmanned aerial platforms as a complementary source to post-event satellite imagery in emergency situations that require very high spatial resolution.

UK SPACE AGENCY
Space grows in the UK
The Space Sector is continuing to grow in the UK at a very fast rate, at around 8%. It is now worth around £12bn annually and predicted to grow to above £40bn by 2030.
Industry, academia and the UK’s Government have been working closely together since 2009 when they published the Space Innovation and Growth Strategy; this has been adopted and updated by successive political administrations and in 2016 the sector is seen as one of the industrial growth stars.
Come and hear about why the UK should be your country of choice when considering a start-up activity, international expansion, or sector diversification. Also where to get assistance to set-up and locate in the UK.
Hear about two recent experiences of starting and growing in the UK with 1) Open Cosmos Ltd, and 2) Critical Software Ltd.
Terry COXALL, Space Specialist with the Innovation Gateway at UKTI
Open Cosmos Ltd. provides simple and affordable space access. We enable rapid payload development and deployment allowing businesses, research institutions and organizations from across industries to use space technology as a tool, overcoming the three major space access barriers: technology, paper work and cost.
We offer our customers a one-stop-shop combination of hardware, software and services that allows them to focus on the data generated from their in-orbit payloads while grouping with others to benefit from economies of scale.
Rafel Jorda Siquier, Founder & CEO at Open Cosmos Ltd
CRITICAL Software established has been producing high-integrity software solutions and developing customised systems, since 1998. It has established itself as a reliable, proactive and cost-effective partner for customers seeking innovative solutions for their most demanding challenges.

New trends, challenges and opportunites for the space sector
At the crossroads of governance, business and technology changes, the Space sector is challenged at each level of the value chain. Space traditional players have to face the recent emergence of innovative business models and projects. The creation of new industrial set-ups, regulatory frameworks and the growing involvement of new space actors are pushing stakeholders to consider different growth opportunities. Space players have to re-think their business strategy to integrate "end-to-end service", "design-to-cost" approaches and "good-enough" risk acceptance models. Govnerments are rethinking the traditional way they manage and procure space systems while new private investors bring an innovative view on space infrastructures. PwC will present its global view of some key trends, challenges and opportunities for a space sector that will have to evolve in the next decade.

Paving the way for very high throughput satellites
French Technology – What you need on ground to reach very high speed by satellite
Telecommunication satellite systems have entered a new era with the deployment of a new generation of high throughput satellites (HTS) dedicated to broadband and broadcast services. This new generation of satellites is based on innovative on-board technologies, mainly in Ka band, but also on new standards (DVB-S2x / DVB-RCS2) and new ground equipment using advanced technologies to allow high quality wideband transmissions. The next step is to go beyond, in order to prepare “very” high throughput satellites systems (V-HTS) allowing a substantial gain in competitiveness for the satellite telecommunication market.
CNES is supporting the introduction of these new systems via its R&D program, taking into account not only satellite and payload technologies but also the ground segment, the hub, the user terminal, and system engineering including new validation methodologies.
The “very high throughput for all” demonstrator is an example of the co-operation between several leading companies to develop and validate an ultra-efficient transmission chain compatible with the V-HTS system objectives. The different partners, including the user terminal chipset provider, the modem provider, the integrated test bed provider and the system integrator will briefly present in this workshop their most innovative technologies developed to answer to this new challenge.
