As the new generation of smallsat launch opportunities come on stream, many in the space sector are looking closely at the commercial prospects and grappling with the emerging regulatory frameworks. Against this background a number of vital questions are being asked, such as:
- With the UK and other nations looking to establish new launch capabilities, how are the spaceports and launch providers gearing up?
- How readily will the new business models align with investor appetite?
- Do the regulatory frameworks deliver the right balance between safety, security and commercial opportunity?
- How will the insurance sector support the new launch opportunities?
To debate these and other key issues, we are delighted to be joined by a distinguished panel of experts:
