GSSF 2011: ‘Region to benefit from high-tech commercial opportunities in space,’ says expert

Sir Martin Sweeting, Chairman of Surrey Satellite Technology (SSTL), Professor and Head of the University of Surrey Space Centre and the pioneer of some of the smallest and lightest satellites in the world earning him a knighthood in the process, is set to address delegates at the Global Space and Satellite Forum (GSSF) 2011, which takes place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) on 9-11 May.

Sir Martin said, “The Middle East region has already demonstrated a keen interest in space-based technologies and I am therefore delighted to be given the opportunity to address the delegates at this year’s GSSF. Small satellites are at the forefront of space innovation, and I believe that there are great opportunities for the region to benefit from the high-tech commercial opportunities in this growing space sector.”
