New Space Workshop by OGC (virtual event)
View the Recording for:
New Space Workshop is a two-day virtual event May 13-14.
This workshop brings together experts and users from across the spectrum of new Space. Space is emerging driven by a combination of technology and market advances from:
(1) rocket launches, small satellites, orbital planes,
(2) evolving sensor modalities and new ground infrastructures and
(3) the uptake of agile thinking and new business models
The purpose of this workshop is to document the trends in the industry, share best practices and challenges, and identify areas that require the development or advancement of frameworks and standards for interoperability. If you are a player anywhere along the spectrum of the Space community, this workshop is for you and will lead the way into Space.
After the New Space workshop concludes, a post-event report sponsored by GRSS-IEEE will be published and sent to all attendees. The report will highlight all sessions, identify key takeaways, and provide next-steps and additional outputs for the space industry.
The OGC Newspace Workshop Agenda
|Day 1 Session 1– Technologies
May 13, 10am -12pm
New launch service providers are bringing new economics that enable space constellations and a proliferation of smallsats. The diversity of sensor phenomenologies continues to increase based on years of research, e.g., SAR, RF reconnaissance, radio occultation, hyperspectral. These new launch capabilities and observation technologies are driving changes in downstream data curation and analytics.
10:00 - 10:15 Welcome & Introductions - Nadine Alameh, OGC
10:15 - 10:30 Session 1 Keynote - Trends in Space (Richard French, Rocket Lab)
|Day 1 Session 2– Data Preparation, Curation & Processing
May 13, 2 - 3:45pm
Petabytes of data volume had presented challenges for getting the most value from space observations. The emergence of cloud computing on big data has brought revolutionary capabilities to the preparation and processing of data from space. Big data platforms and cloud-scale computing allow curation and processing to work with entire data collections of rather than individual scenes.
2:00 - 2:15 Session 2 Keynote - Creating Trustworthy Data for Actionable Intelligence (Frank Avila, NGA)
|Day 2 Session 3 – Data Analytics
May 14 10 am - 12:30 pm
Space observations can benefit many fields of study and business. Extracting knowledge from the observations requires analytics. Data science methods are transforming analytics and applications. Machine learning at scale is effective in analysis, but needs to be confirmed as effective, accurate and robust across applications. Knowledge based models bring robust understanding and predictability, but also need to be confirmed as accurate. Visualization continues to be an effective method to convey understanding of geospatial information.
10:15 - 10:30 Session 3 Keynote Budhu Bhaduri, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
12:00 - 12:30 Workshop wrap up & next steps
