Satellite Technology for more Autonomous & Sustainable Civil Aerospace 26083
Satellite Technology for more Autonomous & Sustainable Civil Aerospace
Approved 2
Satellite technology is being disrupted by new entrants and technologies; this webinar explores how these changes can be leveraged to disrupt aviation in turn.

The webinar will provide aerospace and communications Engineers insight into opportunities and challenges for the use of satellite technology in future aviation, particularly beyond the established passenger-connectivity business.  A vision for a connected aircraft progressing from on-ground supported operations to full autonomy will be drawn out, with the intent to catalyse a coordinated effort to change the way aircraft are flow and operated in the future.

This webinar aims to stimulate ideas for how aviation might be revolutionised by emerging satellite technologies.


Andy Mills is a Senior Researcher in aerospace control and monitoring systems in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at The University of Sheffield. He is the Deputy Director for the Department's Rolls-Royce sponsored research centre which investigates the use of machine intelligence to deliver sustainable aviation. His research explores the integration of data, system design and machine learning.
