HSD Café: Space and Security
The growing capability of satellites to collect more data in higher frequency and resolution provides the security industry with new opportunities to strengthen and protect critical infrastructures on earth. In this HSD Café, the current and future capabilities of satellite data will be discussed to inspire companies and students to come up with viable opportunities for the security sector. The Secure Your Future Challenge 2015 is inviting those interested to submit their proposal and be eligible to win a prize in November this year.
From 16:00 until 16:30, the following four speakers will discuss the contemporary capabilities of satellite systems, the types of data that can be useful for the security industry, and the opportunities that earth observation provides in the future:
• Norbert Hüebner – Head of Feasibility Studies Section Integrated & Telecommunications-related Applications Department (ESA - ESTEC)
• Gert van der Burg - Director Downstream (Holland Space Cluster) & Director (Geomatics Business Park)
• Jasper van Loon - Applications Advisor (Netherlands Space Office)
• Han Wensink - Managing Director (Ocean Space Consult)
Until 17:00 a Panel Discussion will be held during which the audience has the opportunity to ask questions about the content of the presentations. After this Q&A session every participant is invited to discuss the Cafe and to network whilst enjoying a drink and snack until 17:45.
About the HSD Café
The HSD Cafés are organised for HSD partners on every first and third Thursday of each month (except on public holidays). From cyber security, drones to critical infrastructure, 20 sessions will be organised around security topics relevant for businesses, governments, and knowledge institutions. In the first hour (16.00-17.00) of each HSD Café, experts will briefly present a security topic, dilemma, or innovation, followed by an informal discussion.
The second part of the HSD Café (17.00-17.45) will consist of drinks and a possibility to network. The HSD Cafés provide an excellent opportunity to meet (potential) business partners, bring along your contacts, expand your knowledge, and shape the debate on key security issues of the future. Tell us what you think. Let your voice count, expand your network, and join the debate!
Unfortunately there is no parking available underneath the HSD Campus. From 14.00h. you can park for free in the neighbourhood.
