Last month, Mike Bearman and Andrea Bennetti attended the Global Space Congress in Abu Dhabi. The event was hosted by the United Arab Emirates Space Agency and allowed Sapienza to establish relationships with companies and universities involved in the United Arab Emirates space industry.
The congress lasted two days and included talks on UAE’s mission to Mars in 2020, panels from space agency leaders around the world, as well as many opportunities for networking.
One of the break-out rooms focused on the Potential of CubeSats, an interesting topic for Sapienza. Sapienza has started exploring options for University CubeSat projects to use the ECLIPSE Software Suite to manage the various stages of their projects. Sapienza was also invited to the University of Dubai to discuss the use of ECLIPSE suite in their CubeSat project.
Sapienza looks forward to attending the next congress in Abu Dhabi in 2019.
