I recently organized the CEOI ‘Innovations in Remote Sensing’ Showcase in London which attracted over 70 delegates from a wide variety of industries, institutions and government. The event provided a great opportunity to catch up with the latest Earth observation (EO) instrumentation technologies and highlighted potential areas for licensing, collaboration and supply.
Qi3 runs the industry engagement activities of the CEOI programme, which supports mainstream technical projects and smaller ‘seedcorn’ projects, both selected through Open Calls to the community. Created in 2007 and jointly funded by the UK Space Agency and industry, the CEOI has a vision to develop and strengthen UK expertise and capabilities in EO. It also works to position the UK to win leading roles in future international space programmes. Presentations from CEOI Innovations in Remote Sensing Showcase and further information about the CEOI and its technologies can be found via the following link.
