Flight Ready Cameras For Space
Joe Graham, Sales Manager, Raptor Photonics
As more CubeSats go up into LEO orbits, there is a growing interest in optical payloads. But how do you choose the right camera? There are many decisions to make including sensor resolution, pixel size, sensor format (ie CCD, CMOS or InGaAs), wavelength optimisation, optical configuration, interface and comms, size, weight and power.
And when the optical payload has been selected, will it survive the shock and vibration of launch? Will it be affected by cosmic radiation?
In this talk by Raptor Photonics, a UK camera company, you will learn some of the many considerations required by primes and integrators to image in space. Raptor has many cameras currently on live missions on CubeSat payloads. You can share from some of our experiences and learnings.

The Stupidest Thing Ever…Or Not! Opportunities for suppliers in Space Based Solar Power (SBSP)
Cy Keogh, Senior Advisor – Business Transformation, Manufacturing Technology Centre
Despite the pronouncement by Elon Musk that Space Based Solar Power (SBSP) was ‘the stupidest thing ever’, at least six countries are already in the advanced stages of defining a SBSP solution and/or have trials under way. Whilst in its early stage, the UK has outlined both a potential solution and the principal components of the system. This workshop is for organisations who feel they may have the capability to contribute to the project as it develops.
