About the Event
Space and satellite applications are among the biggest emerging markets for engineering today. In this talk, Peter will explore some parts of the life cycle of a satellite from conception and requirements through to design and testing, before discussing operations and end-of-life.
Along the way, he will explore some of the broader issues in the space industry today including space debris, radio licensing and the impact of geopolitical change.
Peter Christopher is a Research Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and in the Electrical Engineering Division at Cambridge University Engineering Department where he specialises in Fourier Optics. He recently also co-founded Exobotics, a company designing and building satellites for the next generation of space missions. For details of Exobotics, go to https://exobotics.space
