SESSION 2 - 15:30 UK Time (GMT)

Satellite Industry Association

Tom Stroup, President

  • Commercial Remote Sensing Systems: Driving the Market for Cloud Services

SIA will present data from its annual State of the Satellite Industry Report on the growth of remote sensing services. A major driver in the growth of cloud services for the satellite industry is the volume of data gathered by remote sensing satellites. This presentation will cover the companies that have launched satellite systems and the services they provide, as well as data on the number and characteristics of remote sensing satellites launched by year.


Obi Onugha, Cloud Advisory Manager

  • Charting a Successful Path in the Cloud

The Cloud's value proposition has never been stronger for Space. Next generation satellite constellations promise to unlock new capabilities and service providers have the chance to deliver a wide range of new services to existing and entirely new sets of customers through cloud technologies. This presentation explores how satellite companies can leverage the cloud to drive costs savings, accelerate innovation and unlock future value.


Richard Cooper, Director Consulting SME Space Control and Information Solutions

  • Satellite Ground Systems and Cloud Services... Risk and Reward

Exploiting the use of cloud solutions in satellite ground systems has many potential benefits but also challenges. This session will discuss both and cover relevant cloud solutions which are in use today and paint a picture of the future.

Cloud Constellation Corp.

Cliff Beek, President and CEO

  • Creating a Network of Resources in Space

Cloud Constellation aims to host an in-orbit data platform for securely managing and distributing highly sensitive information. Our mission is to avoid the vulnerabilities of terrestrial infrastructure by establishing physical separation that instructs space assets for a secure “store and forward” communications platform.

Route206 b.v.

Ronald van der Bregen, CEO

  • The Sense and Nonsense of LEO Constellations for Data Networks

Not all LEO constellations are created equally – let’s dig in into the main attributes of current and future systems and analyze how relevant they will be in the development of data networks and cloud systems.
