The First Finnish satellite workshop, organized by Aalto University and Centre of Excellence in Research of Sustainable Space is a meeting place for professonials in the Finnish space tech field.
The entrance to the workshop is free of charge, but a registration is needed.
Dipoli, Aalto University
Wednesday to Thursday (9:00 am to 17:00 pm)
January 17 to 18, 2018
Now is the time to create continuation for the great start. Finland is a small country and we have to collaborate to create a great Finnish Space Program.
Come to the workshop to create history with us.
The Finnish Space Program is based around innovation and commercial utilization of space. Come hear how the space technology can help your business!

The talk will give an overview of the measurements of Aalto-1/RADMON and our plans for future energetic particle experiments on-board CubeSats in the framework of the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Research of Sustainable Space. We will also take a look on other instruments for the detection of energetic particle radiation on CubeSat platforms.

The Coulomb Sailing Group is an informal international team that develops Coulomb drag propulsion, i.e., the electric solar wind sail (E-sail) and the plasma brake. The E-sail provides efficient propellantless interplanetary propulsion. The plasma brake provides low-cost satellite deorbiting for solving the debris problem in low Earth orbit. Hardware for E-sail and plasma brake are closely related. For the plasma brake, our aim is to mature and commercialise the 2-U module that we developed in the ESA CleanSat project in 2016. When two modules are used, up to 800 kg satellite can be deorbited from 850 km altitude or correspondingly lighter masses from higher altitudes. For the E-sail, we are seeking collaborator partners to gain affordable access for small payloads to the solar wind, because such access is needed by all E-sail test and production missions. Commercially, the E-sail could enable economical asteroid mining as well as space weather prediction with two hours warning time instead of the standard one hour, plus a number of breakthrough scientific applications for example with asteroids and giant planets.
The Conference lasts for two days with great speakers for each day
