Adjunct Professor in ECE Department, NUS
Title: Space
Synopsis: This seminar aims to share about our Singapore journey into access to space. This was carried out using X-Sat micro-satellite as a vehicle for the build-up of micro-satellite development capability from ground zero. The various terminology and processes involved in such space systems development would be illustrated. X-Sat micro-satellite was launched on 20 Apr 2011, about 7 years ago. Thereafter, we continued to advance space capabilities in a two-pronged approach (namely product-development path in industry and technology R & D path at universities. While pursuing this strategy, there is a transformation of space industry when disruptive technologies are being developed or actively pursued as private start-ups. This trend has continued and even accelerated and the seminar aims to create awareness of the disruptive transformation in space industry and discuss how it could affect Singapore build-up of advanced space capabilities.
