Session tracks

Track 1: Space Missions:

Currently, Space Missions are spacecraft exploring Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Saturn, as well as a comet and an asteroid. The Voyager spacecraft are moving at high speed out of our solar system while New Horizons speeds toward a 2015 encounter with Pluto. Closer to home, we have probes in lunar orbit, a handful of solar physics missions, space telescopes, and a small army of Earth-observing satellites. In Earth orbit, the International Space Station continues to soar around the planet with a continually staffed crew of astronauts and cosmonauts.

Track 2: Orbital Mechanics:

Orbital mechanics is the main application of ballistics and celestial mechanics to the practical problems concerning the motion of rockets and other spacecraft. Orbital mechanics, which focuses on spacecraft trajectories, including orbital maneuvers, orbit plane changes, and interplanetary transfers, and is used by mission planners to predict the results of propulsive maneuvers. General relativity is a more exact theory than Newton’s laws for calculating orbits, and is sometimes necessary for greater accuracy or in high-gravity situations (such as orbits close to the Sun).

Track 3: Space exploration:

Space exploration  is one of the main ongoing discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space which means, continuously evolving and growing space technology. The exploration of Mars has been an important part of the space exploration programs of the Soviet Union (later Russia), the United States, Europe, Japan and India. Dozens of robotic spacecraft, including orbiters, landers, and rovers, have been launched toward Mars since the 1960s. These missions were aimed at gathering data about current conditions and answering questions about the history of Mars.

Track 4: Earthquake Engineering:

Earthquake defines a structure’s ability to sustain and its main functions, such as its safety and serviceability, at and after a particular earthquake exposure. A structure is normally considered safe if it does not endanger the lives and well-being of those in or around it by partially or completely collapsing. A structure may be considered serviceable if it is able to fulfill its operational functions for which it was designed. Basic concepts of the earthquake engineering, implemented in the major building codes, assume that a building should survive a rare, very severe earthquake by sustaining significant damage but without globally collapsing. On the other hand, it should remain operational for more frequent, but less severe seismic events.

Track 5: Satellite Remote Sensing and GIS:

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on site observation. Remote sensing is a sub-field of geography. A geographic information system (GIS) is a system which was designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data.

Track 6: Satellite Subsystems:

Satellites are used for a large number of purposes. Common types include military and civilian Earth observation satellites, communications satellites, navigation satellites, weather satellites, and research satellites. Space stations and human spacecraft in orbit are also satellites. Satellite orbits vary greatly, depending on the purpose of the satellite, and are classified in a number of ways. Well-known (overlapping) classes include low Earth orbit, polar orbit, and geostationary orbit.

Track 7: Types of Satellites & Applications:

Satellites can be classified by their function since they are launched into space to do a specific job. The satellite must be designed specifically to fulfill its role. There are nine different types of satellites i.e.  Communications Satellite, Remote Sensing Satellite, Navigation Satellite, LEO, MEO, HEO, GPS, GEOs, Drone Satellite, Ground Satellite, Polar Satellite. Communications satellites are artificial satellites that relay receive signals from an earth station and then retransmit the signal to other earth stations. They commonly move in a geostationary orbit. A remote Sensing instrument collects information about an object. The Satellite meetings offers key insights into cutting-edge applications from global experts, start-ups, and the winners of Europe’s major innovation competitions for space applications

Track 8: Satellite Communication:

Communications satellite is an artificial satellite that relays and amplifies through the use of a transponder, radio telecommunications signals, between a source and a receiver. Communications satellites are used for television, telephone, radio, internet, and military applications. There are over 2,000 communications satellites in Earth’s orbit, used by both private and government organizations.

Track 9: Satellite Navigation:

Satellite Navigation is a system of satellites that provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. It allows small electronic receivers to determine their location (longitude, latitude, and altitude) to high precision (within a few meters) using time signals transmitted along a line of sight by radio from satellites. The signals also allow the electronic receivers to calculate the current local time to high precision, which allows time synchronization. A Satellite Navigation system with global coverage may be termed a global navigation satellite system (GNSS).

Track 10: Aerospace Engineering & Technology:

Aerospace Engineering and Technology focusing on communications between earth communication stations and space-based communication satellites. The discipline involves designing Communication satellites, Space Missions, Space Applications, Space Propulsion, designing and building earth stations, Satellite Launcher Technology, repairing and installing satellite communication equipment. Aerospace Engineering deals with the design, construction, and study of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft. The field also covers their aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors, airfoil, control surfaces, lift, drag, and other properties.

Track 11: Applications of Satellite Technology:

The main applications of satellites are mainly categorized as, Weather forecast used to observations from which to analyses the current state of the atmosphere. Broadcasting services include radio and television delivered directly to the consumer and mobile broadcasting services. Earth observation satellites are used for observing the earth’s surface, possible to see many features that are not obvious from the earth’s surface, or even at the altitudes at which aircraft fly. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the first core element of the satellite navigation system widely available to civilian users.

Track 12: Functions and Capabilities of Satellite:

Satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth’s Moon. Artificial satellites originate from more than 40 countries and have used the satellite launching capabilities of ten nations. A few hundred satellites are currently operational, whereas thousands of unused satellites and satellite fragments orbit the Earth as space debris.

Track 13: Climate change & Weather forecasting:

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Weather and forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location. Weather forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change.

Track 14: Satellite Dish:

A satellite dish is a dish-shaped type of parabolic antenna designed to receive electromagnetic signals from satellites, which transmit data transmissions or broadcasts, such as satellite television. A dish that is mounted on a pole and driven by a stepper motor or a servo can be controlled and rotated to face any satellite position in the sky. Motor-driven dishes are popular with enthusiasts.

Track 15: LTE-based ground network and satellite network:

LTE (Long-Term Evolution) commonly marketed as 4G LTE, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies, increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements. LTE is the natural upgrade path for carriers with both GSM/UMTS networks and CDMA2000 networks. The different LTE frequencies and bands used in different countries will mean that only multi-band phones will be able to use LTE in all countries where it is supported.

Track 16: Asteroid Impact Mission (AIM)

The Asteroid Impact Mission is a small ESA mission of opportunity to explore and demonstrate technologies for future missions while performing scientific investigations on a binary asteroid and addressing planetary defense. Asteroids and comets are very interesting objects, being the remnants of the earliest years of the formation of our Solar System, more than four billion years ago. The word asteroid means “star-like” and these objects appear in the sky as bright, point-like stars. But, unlike stars, asteroids are rocks orbiting our Solar System: they don’t emit light on their own and are visible only because they reflect sunlight.

Track 17: Satellite Radiance

Satellite Radiance Measure up welling radiation at top of atmosphere. Measure New IR instruments and deep layers generally implies large horizontal scale. Weather satellites do not measure temperature directly but measure radiances in various wavelength bands. Since 1978 Microwave sounding units (MSUs) on National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration polar orbiting satellites have measured the intensity of upwelling microwave radiation from atmospheric oxygen, which is proportional to the temperature of broad vertical layers of the atmosphere.

Market Value of Satellite in Germany

According to the market study of Germany’s telecom sector has also been affected by the European debt crisis, prompting the government to step in with a US$64.94 billion (€50 billion) economic stimulus package, which included US$22.47 billion (€17.3 billion) of investment in infrastructure, of which a proportion is dedicated to telecom network upgrades. More than half of telecoms investment since the market was fully liberalized in 1998 has been undertaken by new entrants, which have steadily increased their expenditure since 2004. Germany’s competitive television market is the largest in Europe, with some 34 million TV households. According to the results of the latest TV Monitor study, for the first time in the history of television in Germany, more viewers are watching TV via satellite than via cable. At the end of 2011, 17.5 million households were watching TV via satellite, almost 900,000 more than in the previous year. Ninety percent of these households were digital, leaving 1.8 million households still in the analogue reception mode. Out of the total, 5.9 million of all satellite households were watching High Definition (HD) TV. At the same time, cable lost about 900,000 households in 2011 and reducing the reach of cable TV to 17.3 million. Digital terrestrial TV lost 180,000 households, bringing its coverage down to 1.8 million. IPTV has continued to grow; with an increase of 330,000 households.  In 2011, IPTV exceeded the million mark, reaching 1.3 million.

Market Value of Satellite in World

According to market study, market value of Satellite at present is $8.84 billion. The total space budget of the 35 countries examined in the report represents conservatively USD 64.4 billion in 2009 and an estimated USD 65.3 billion in 2010, with the bulk of funding in G7 and BRIC countries. All G20 countries have space programmes.

Market Growth of Satellite Research in the last and upcoming ten years

Growth by next 5-10 years in Germany:

There is “huge growth” in store for the small-satellite market, according to Carolyn Belle, an analyst for Northern Sky Research, a Wilmington, Del., and satellite-industry market research firm. Belle is the author of a recently released report, “Nano and Microsatellite Markets,” that examines satellites weighing from 1 to 50 kg. The study focuses on the lighter versions of so-called microsatellites (weighing from 10 to 100 kg), as well as Nano satellites (weighing from 1 to 10 kg). While there were fewer than 200 launches of 1- to 50-kg satellites in the last 5 years, Belle believes there will be about 2,000 launches of these devices over the next 10 years.

Over the next 10 years, however, Belle sees most of the growth in the small-satellite market coming from Earth observation. “Because these satellites are inexpensive to build, you can put constellations of them in orbit to cover the same area on Earth more frequently than a larger satellite,” she explained. “Instead of getting one picture of Northern California every day, you might be able to get four.”

Growth by next 5-10 years in Worldwide:
