On the 20th April 2023 we heard from Jon Wakeling, BT
and Joseph Spear, Mvine
on the key topics around satellite research currently ongoing at BT, the launch of the New Anglia LEP Space East cluster and how space assets can be used to help the emergency services save lives when attending a mass casualty incident.
This event was a organised in collaboration with Adastral Presents
, and was streamed live from the Knight Studio in Adastral Park, Suffolk. Adastral Park is home to BT Labs the heart of BT's research, development and innovation since 1974.
Take a look below at the recordings from the session:
Presenting first was Jon Wakeling
– BT, Acting Research Director, Physical Infrastructure. Jon has 30 years’ experience in and around BT’s space business dealing with everything from spacecraft design to application and service trials. He highlighted some of the satellite research ongoing at BT, from new antenna technologies to new service development, covering applications from broadband access to IoT.
Also presenting was Joseph Spear
, Mvine, Director of Communications.
Joseph spoke about the deployment of an ad-hoc mesh network with a clear use case for current and upcoming satellite constellations to deliver Digital Twin technology for improved situational awareness. This then links to how space assets can be used to help the emergency services save lives when attending a mass casualty incident.
