Events: January – April 2017

A new year, a new set of events!

Radio workshop – Sheffield – 11th February 2017

Radio workshops are a great introduction into operating and using radios, and are a first step to getting your own Amateur Radio License. Radio systems are useful for all kinds of projects from High Altitude Balloons to cubesats, and a practical understanding can be useful in working with communications systems in the space sector.

GMAT Workshop – Leicester – 25th February 2017

The General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) is an open-source space mission analysis tool to answer just those  types of questions. The workshop will cover the basics of astrodynamics and you will learn how to simulate basic orbital manoeuvres and burns. If time allows we will also get on to precessions. It’s like real life Kerbal Space Program!

National Student Space Conference – Exeter – 4th/5th March 2017

The UKSEDS National Student Space Conference, now in its 29th year, is the premier event for students interested in space, uniting them with academics and professionals from across the country to network, share knowledge, and discuss the challenges facing the sector. It features talks by leading space science and industry figures, a careers fair, and opportunities to take part in discussions and networking events.

Student Propulsion Forum – London – 21st April 2017

UKSEDS in association with Kingston University London is running the UK’s first Student Propulsion Forum. Rocket propulsion skills and technology form an integral part of the modern UK space industry, for small and large satellite projects and the upcoming UK satellite launch programmes. This 1 day forum will bring together students and industrial stakeholders to review university based projects in rocket propulsion (with an emphasis on practical experience), to allow exchange of ideas and best practise between UK and European students, and to invite feedback from industry on education and training requirements from the university community.
