EO Instrumentation Challenges for UAVs & CubeSats – CEOI/RSPSoc Challenge Workshop

Estimated Article Reading Time: 1 min.

Tuesday 10th July 2012, University of Nottingham

The Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI) will be holding its next Challenge Workshop – Challenges for EO Instrumentation for UAVs & CubeSats on Tuesday 10th July 2012 at the University of Nottingham. This event is being held in association with the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc).

The challenge workshop will explore the technology and instrumentation challenges for Earth Observation from Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs) and CubeSats. There are a number of small and large UAV systems now on the market and recently there has been a growth in interest in use of CubeSats for EO. Both platforms require compact instruments but there has not been a commensurate development in such instrumentation. The workshop’s goal is to bring together EO scientists and instrumentation developers to investigate opportunities for instrumentation and payload development for science and commercial uses.  The challenge workshop format includes presentations by leading researchers/technologists and discussion sessions to allow all attendees to contribute.
