AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium Guildford Sep 15-16

Post by g0mwt »

The AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium takes place this weekend September 15-16 at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, GU2 7XZ and is open to all.

The Colloquium is a truly international event and will include:

Exclusive access to inspect the new Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) clean room and integration facilities at the recently opened Kepler Building. If you have visited their previous facilities at the university campus, during previous Colloquia, you will be amazed by what is happening now.

Presentations by experts from AMSAT-SA, AMSAT-NA and AMSAT-DL on their current spacecraft projects.

CubeSat presentations on UKube-1, STRaND-1, STRaND-2 and, of course the FUNcube-1 project which will be launched on a DNEPR rocket towards the end of the year.

We will be including an exclusive roundup of a number of new live and potential spacecraft projects that are under investigation and/or development.

Additionally a number of presentations are planned covering new communications techniques and similar futuristic topics, along with the launch of the new FUNcube Dongle PRO-Plus Software Defined Radio (SDR) on the Saturday.

Plus all the usual networking opportunities, the gala dinner and auction/raffle, plus the opportunity to operate the sophisticated ground station in the GB4FUN mobile demonstration module.

The weekend event is open to all and attracts an audience that ranges from those involved in building and operating Amateur Radio spacecraft to beginners who wish to find out more about this fascinating branch of the hobby.

All accommodation will be at the Holiday Inn hotel. Rooms and Saturday’s Gala Dinner must be booked in advance in the AMSAT-UK shop ... 6-Sep.html.
