Dubai Airshow, Women In Space Conference: Unlocking value from space technology and enabling industry benefit Panel

  1. 1. Women in Space Unlocking value from space technology and enabling industry benefit Shelli Brunswick COO Space Foundation November 18, 2019
  2. 2. Today’s Space Economy Most diverse and dynamic economy on the planet Touches every continent, community and citizen Daily life relies on space technology Every businesses is a space business given reliance on space technology Global space economy is expected to grow from $414B today to $1-3T by 2040 Opportunities for ALL
  3. 3. Global Growth & Good Governance Global commercial space commerce represents nearly 80% of global space activity. Largest subset of products and services is positioning, navigation and timing, which earned $98.67 billion in revenue in 2018 —a 20.5% jump from 2017. Technology created for space exploration is commercialized for virtually every industry. Space economy is expanding and diversifying through private enterprises and collaborations. The right legislation enables the right workforce to grow the space economy for lift-off. (e.g. NDEA Act of 1958; 2004 actions, etc.) You can’t develop technology or be innovative without skilled talent. The same goes for policy making.
  4. 4. Technology Transfer & Insertion Tech Transfer & Insertion are the ROI of every space program; Whatever is developed for space benefits life on Earth. Every industry and infrastructure has been transformed by space. Opportunity: NASA alone has hundreds of technology patents waiting for commercialization. Challenge: Aging population and not enough skilled entrepreneurs to develop space technology innovations for life on Earth. Solution: aggressive technology transfer and insertion program; UAE Space Investment Plan; UAE National Space Strategy 2030 Space Foundation initiatives feature hands-on STEM training, business development workshops, and our annual Space Symposium that connects over 15,000 space professionals annually.
  5. 5. Innovation & Space Policy • Legislation, regulation and rule making must encourage and fund education, recruitment, and training for space technology innovation. • These actions create and expand economic opportunity • (e.g., In 2004, legislative mandates and private enterprise in the US launched a new era of space technology innovation. These changes, along with the first suborbital flights of SpaceShipOne, triggered a 13-year growth period resulting in a 162% increase in commercial space revenue from 2005 to 2018.) • Global policy opportunities: managing/removing space debris; exploration; Earth observation; orbital access, etc. You can’t develop technology or be innovative without skilled talent. The same goes for policy making.
  6. 6. Developing Standards to Increase Transparency Standards are necessary to ensure quality, performance, compatibility, interoperability, trust and reliability. Our Shared Foundation • 20+ years of the ISS operations and continual human presence in Earth orbit • 60+ years of operating telecommunications satellites • 80+ years of rocket launches • 100 years of radio and radar transmissions Collaboration on international standards allows: • Mobile phones use when we travel overseas • Supply chain systems working seamlessly when goods cross oceans • Internet to connect citizens across continents • GPS to work around the globe. Collaboration must continue if space is to become the true global frontier of opportunity.
  7. 7. Space Foundation • Join Us! We are looking for partners, collaborators, and sponsors of like minded organizations that want to make an impact on the future workforce and for the space economy. • As a 501(c)(3) global leader in space advocacy for 37 years, Space Foundation is in the unique position to unite the entire spectrum of stakeholders across the space technology ecosystem to cultivate lifelong learners, innovators and valued contributors to the space economy.
