10 Aug 22. Australian Army showcases next-generation technology. A range of defence innovations and next-generation capabilities are on display at a three-day symposium. The Chief of Army Symposium has officially kicked off in Adelaide, set to host the Army Future Forum, Army Innovation Day, Army Robotics Expo and Army Quantum Technology Challenge.
The events aim to explore ideas and potential developments between Army, industry and academia, as part of a broader effort to modernise the Army in preparation for the future battlespace.
The Army Innovation Day is expected to provide companies the opportunity to explore tactical logistics uncrewed aerial systems for Army.
Chief of Army Lieutenant General Simon Stuart said Army is seeking innovative logistics uncrewed aerial systems for a range of tasks, which include routine resupply, high risk combat resupply and casualty evacuation missions to troops in contact.
“Ongoing conflicts have shown just how important these uncrewed aerial systems are in combat situations,” LTGEN Stuart said.
“For an army as modest in size as ours, robotic and autonomous systems help us to generate scale, mass, effect and reach across all domains whilst enabling us to reduce the risk to our soldiers wherever possible.”
The Army Quantum Technology Challenge aims to support collaboration between academic, industry and Army representatives to demonstrate the application of quantum technologies.
The objective is to overcome challenges in land warfare, leveraging countermeasures to disruptive emerging technologies.
Meanwhile, the Army Robotics Exposition 2022 is set to feature live displays from industry representatives, including uncrewed ground vehicles and aerial systems.
“The symposium highlights Army’s focus on new and emerging technologies and the possibilities of tomorrow by harnessing good ideas and innovation across Army, industry and academia,” LTGEN Stuart said.
“We are transforming to keep pace with the changing character of warfare and to remain technologically relevant and building flexibility into the system to remain agile.
“This symposium is just one part of our efforts to develop our capabilities with local defence companies and their global defence industry partners.” (Source: Defence Connect)
08 Aug 22. Space-Comm Expo to welcome the global commercial space industry to the UK. BAE Systems, Airbus, CGI, Cornwall Space Cluster, Raytheon UK are among the exhibitor list.
More than 130 of the leading space innovators around the world will be exhibiting and sharing future-focused insight at Space-Comm Expo, 7-8 September 2022.
Hot on the heels of the Farnborough International Airshow, Space-Comm Expo will be accelerating the conversation on the future of the commercial space sector at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, UK, with a star-studded speaker programme and expo.
BAE Systems join other pioneering organisations, including Airbus, CGI, Cornwall Space Cluster, Raytheon UK, Rolls-Royce, Space Florida, PWC and Czech Republic Aerospace in unveiling their latest strategies and showcasing their technology and innovations during the two-day expo and conference.
On exhibiting at Space-Comm Expo, Elizabeth Seward, Head of Strategy – Space, BAE Systems, said: “BAE Systems has been innovating in space for over 25 years. We enhance our customers’ digital advantage through the delivery of data and intelligence from diverse sources in space and on Earth.
“Through In-Space Missions, we have the ability to design, build and launch satellites as a sovereign capability. Our ambition is to build a more diverse UK space industry alongside the development of resilient platform agnostic systems whilst enriching our strength through partnerships.
“We recognise that space is more than just the new high ground, it is the pan-global domain that enables integration across air, land, sea and cyberspace. At Space-Comm Expo, we will be showcasing our space activities, connecting with customers and partners and unveiling our space strategy in public for the first time.”
Rob Sherwood, Managing Director of Hub Exhibitions, commented: “The commercial space industry is growing at an exponential rate. To put that into perspective, satellite consultancy Euroconsult recently shared that there will be 17,000 satellites launched over the next 10 years, a fourfold increase over the previous 10 years. Therefore Space-Comm Expo has been curated to represent the entire supply chain, from cloud data sharing and satellites to manufacturing and mining. Our exhibitors are true game changers across the sector and I’m excited to welcome them to the second instalment of Space-Comm Expo.
Organised by Hub Exhibitions in partnership with Farnborough International, Space-Comm Expo features a world-class speaker programme of over 90 space experts and Government officials across three themed theatres, an innovation-focused exhibition and the opportunity to take part in 1-2-1 meetings with key suppliers and partners.
Attendance to Space-Comm Expo is free. To register for your place or for more information, visit https://www.space-comm.co.uk/
