EICC, Edinburgh

Attracting over 800 delegates, SPIE Remote Sensing is THE European conference for scientists and spie remote sensing logoresearchers focusing on satellite-based imaging systems and data generated by them. Co-located with SPIE Security + Defence, the event gives delegates access to the most recent satellite-based imaging systems and the security and defence logodata generated by them, as well as a way to share that information within science, government, and industry.

The conference also includes a free industry-focused session and exhibition.

Free Industry Session: 28 Sept

Learn more about the business side of remote sensing, defence and security at the free industry session, aimed at anyone – from engineers to CEOs – interested in business content. This year, CENSIS has worked with the UK Defence Solutions Centre on the agenda, bringing delegates together for a day of discussion and debate from a range of speakers including:

  • Sir Brian Burridge, Senior VP, Finmeccanica UK
  • Nigel Douglas, CEO, Global Surface Intelligence
  • Graham Malcolm, CEO, M Squared Lasers
  • Stephen Marshall, University of Strathclyde
  • Jaime Reed, Head of R&D, Earth Observation, Navigation, and Science; Airbus Defence and Space

To register, please select ‘Exhibition Only’. This will give you free entry to the Industry Session but not to the main conference.

Exhibition: 27-28 Sept

The exhibition showcases the latest innovations in detection, imaging, sensing, lasers, and their supporting components and devices.  Technologies and applications include:
