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.

Radio workshop – Bath – 18th March 2017

Radio workshops are a great introduction into operating and using radios, and are a first step to getting your own Amateur Radio License.

Student Propulsion Forum – London – 8th April 2017

The Student Propulsion Forum is a new event aimed at educating students about propulsion systems, with two main thrusts:

  • Student rocketry projects – Have you ever wanted to start a student group project involved with rocketry, such as building a hybrid motor or a large rocket and needed some help getting started? There will be sessions on how to get started with these kinds of projects, including some details on self-made hybrid motors. We will also be joined by some of our partner European student groups, who will be presenting their projects and future goals.
  • The UK propulsion sector – The UK small launch & propulsion sector is currently expanding due to increased interest from commercial and government organisations. Some of these organisations will be presenting their vision for propulsion in the UK Space Sector.
