Maximizing the potential of Satellite Earth Observation for the economy, science and society
Beth Greenaway, Head of Earth Observations and Climate, UK Space AgencyMore Info
The UK Space Agency is seeking to ensure that the UK’s participation in Earth observation is as strong as possible and that satellite data it is recognised for the role it can play in delivering a sustainable service based economy.
Its vision is that by 2040 satellite Earth Observations will provide the data underpinning mass market and business applications, global cutting edge science and policy and operational decision making.
This presentation will give examples of how the Agency activities seek to develop a broad and deep ecosystem of companies big and small dealing in the entire spectrum of earth observation issues from early research and technology development, through manufacture and launch, through the infrastructure and services needed to move, validate check and share and interpret the data into a format suitable for use. Inspiring the new generation to attain the skills needed to fill the jobs that will be created in the UK is perhaps the most fun.

Deepening the Evidence Base; Countering Fake News
Richard Brittan, Managing Director, AlcisMore Info
National policy and strategy development requires an effective evidence base for decision making. This is doubly so for fragile states where access to the realities on the ground is limited. In an era of ‘Fake News’, this evidence base needs to be all the more robust. One of the most robust and reliable sources of evidence is satellite imagery, where the multiple (temporal, spatial and spectral) resolutions of collected data offer a range of unique and confirmatory insights that few can challenge or ignore.
Through the examples of UK Government and Research Councils UK projects covering conflict affected countries, Richard will illustrate innovative approaches to deepening the evidence and analysis conducted over complex environments for non-traditional users of satellite imagery. He will show how robust, evidence based, impactful research findings can be developed, when multiple resolutions of satellite imagery are used in concert with targeted, co-ordinated ground data collection. Due to the highly visual nature of the analysis, Richard will as well show how advocacy impact can be made considerably greater and how fake news can be more effectively countered.
