DETAILS
Low Earth orbit (LEO) is exploding with new space technology, applications & opportunities.

Fueling the growth are the shrewd investors who put up $3.9 billion dollars for commercial space companies in 2017. Small sats & cubesats, advanced satellite software, growing number of cross industry applications for space imagery, cheap access to space, tourism & orbiting private habitats-all of which are parts of a new economy in LEO. But sustainability is the key. In this session James Causey, Executive Director of SpaceCom & Steve Wolfe, Deputy Executive Director will review the key benchmarks the commercial space industry need reach in order to be sustainable & provide examples of the applications that space enabled services provide to industry, particularly in the area of predictive analytics.
