Micro-to-macro: space technologies at extremes of length-scale

Seminar by SPRINT · Free · Past

Welcome to the SPRINT talks Space series. The National Space Strategy, launched in late 2021 sets out how the UK will build one of the most innovative and attractive space economies in the world, creating the right conditions for space businesses to start, grow, innovate, and thrive. SPRINT is keen to continue to support this ambition and, as a result, has developed a series of free to attend regular talks that will disseminate rich market knowledge and expert advice from industry leaders, government experts, policy advisers and those who are passionate about the space sector. This series of talks will cover a wide range of subject matter, and introduce viewpoints and discussions that will inform the SPRINT network on the challenges and opportunities the UK space sector offers.

Land in Focus – Wet Ecosystems

MOOC by ESA and EO-College · Free · Current

Our planet is diverse and many of our landscapes are heavily impacted by standing or flowing water. Wet ecosystems are considered to be amongst the most productive ones known to mankind. They provide habitat for a rich variety of plants and animals, while additionally playing major roles in global cycles of water, carbon dioxide and other substances that are essential for life, as we know it. Human-induced changes such as drying out wetlands or the impact of anthropogenic climate change are threatening wet ecosystems and require even more attention in the observation of soil moisture as well as global water levels.

GVF Training

Resource by GVF · $348.00 (~£323) · Current

The Global VSAT Forum is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting and supporting the world-wide satellite communications industry. In 2001, at the request of its membership, the GVF launched a new training program with the objective of building a global force of qualified VSAT installation technicians available in local areas to support expansion of VSAT networks. The program began with a handful of classes led by volunteer instructors, but from 2006 accelerated rapidly due to the partnership with SatProf, Inc., who provided the interactive, online learning content and took on the administration of the program on behalf of GVF. In 2010 the training content was refocused on interference prevention skills, as a key element in GVF’s initiatives serving the industry’s drive to combat unintentional interference. Today, the GVF training program has already reached over 16,000 students all around the world and has grown to over 40 courses and 16 separate certifications, covering not only VSAT installation but marine terminal operation and installation, teleport and news gathering uplinking, mobile terminal operation, numerous general theory topics, and equipment-specific training.
