Technology is a key element that will enable and ease future space missions. This session will address three major aspects: robotic space programmes including Artificial Intelligence, miniaturization of technology in the context of CubeSat, as well as the fragmentation and federation of satellites to achieve high level mission objectives.
What can be achieved today with CubeSats? What are the current trends?
Is there room for Artificial Intelligence in Space?
This session will interactively discuss these elements and will bring insight on potential job market development.
