INVITING ALL NEWSPACE ENTHUSIASTS TO WORK TOGETHER TO REACH FOR THE STARS

JOIN OUR KICK-OFF IDEATION SESSION THIS TUESDAY 10th OF JULY

UNSW TECHCONNECT IS FOCUSED ON SUPPORTING ACADEMICS AND THE BROADER COMMUNITY TO COMMERCIALISE RESEARCH, FOSTER INNOVATION AND KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE

WE ARE ASSEMBLING FOR OUR FIRST NEWSPACE IDEATION SESSION TUESDAY 10th JULY AND ARE LOOKING FOR PARTICIPANTS WHO WANT TO COLLABORATE AND FLASH BUILD IN SPACE

WE HOPE THIS EVENT WILL RESULT IN:

TechVouchers to support industry and UNSW collaboration

Other larger funding opportunities like CRC-P’s

New connections and friendships developed while building the NewSpace Ecosystem

Amazing marketing and PR opportunities for all who participate

To give you a better idea, check out some of the success stories from our last event

WHILE WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW IDEAS AND CHALLENGES TO BE PUT FORWARD, WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER A LIST OF IDEAS WE HOPE TO DISCUSS AND FIND EXPERTS TO BRING TO THEM LIFE

October 5km Rocket Launch

We are looking for an out-of-the-box idea for an experiment to run this October during a 5km rocket launch test. We would love to include an industry partner who has never thought of being to space before! Maybe our farmers from FarmConnect?

Centralising ground control

We would like to explore centralised ground control and other shared services for cubesats. We are interested in which protocols would be considered best practice for this, if legacy ones could be abolished for both data and security optimisation.

Machine learning in hardware maintenance

How can ​​we use AI in the predictive maintenance of satellites?​ ​Are there lessons to be learnt from other utility industries and super computers like IBM’s Watson or UNSW’s Silicon Quantum Computing​​. Will this lead to more divergent designs for special use satellites or a one size fits all design?

Blockchain and Cyber Security

We want to put a blockchain mining rig in space to mine coins. We know this may not make too much sense, but that’s what a flash build is all about. We can use this as a metaphor to explain computers in space, cyber security, photovoltaics and other great Australian made technologies!

IMPLEMENTING STEM learning course

We are really interested in getting a legal and philosophical point of view on the militarisation of space. Currently, the US is pulling out of policies and accords and is looking to make a Space Force. What are the risks and ramifications of this becoming the next battlefield?

What would you do if you were on Mars?

There is an underground motel in White Cliffs, where we would love to host our flash build. We think it could work as a great simulation of being on Mars and would love to have an idea to justify this!

ALL OF THE BEST PLANS ARE SUBJECTED TO CHANGE.
IF YOU HAVE OTHER IDEAS ON WHAT WE COULD DO UP THERE
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
