Astrosat is headline sponsor of major space conference

Astrosat has further enhanced its position as one of the UK's most ambitious space technology companies by taking the headline sponsorship of the Collaborate to Innovate Space Conference 2015.

The major event, organised by the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence, will take place at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel, Newcastle-upon-Tyne on Thursday, November 26, and will be attended by more than 200 senior industry delegates.

It will focus on the new and developing opportunities within the global space technology industry and help stakeholders to understand how to transform their businesses through innovations with satellite data.

As an award-winning astrophysicist and astronautical engineer, as well as a proven innovator and entrepreneur, Steve Lee, CEO of Astrosat, will be one of the event's main speakers.

He said: "Astrosat is greatly honoured to be the main sponsor for Collaborate to Innovate Space Conference 2015. We see a great opportunity to seek out collaborators and problems we can solve with space technology in the region and abroad. In particular, we are looking to focus on maritime, energy and transport challenges.

"Astrosat prides itself on its ability to target solutions where space is of value, particularly through the meeting of solutions providers and stakeholders. The conference is the perfect place to communicate with leaders in the space industry and should be seen as an opportunity to form long lasting relationships."
