SSTL exhibits the small sats space revolution at FIA 2014

The SSTL team enjoyed chatting about our innovative space technology at the Farnborough International Airshow last week.
SSTL's stand was positioned in the Space Zone at FIA, and we were in good company with our colleagues from ESA, Airbus, Clyde Space, Deimos Elecnor, Qinetiq, and the UK Space Agency postioned nearby.  We enjoyed welcoming experts, enthusiasts, VIPs and high level delegations to our stand over the week - thanks FIA, see you again in 2016!

Scale models of our satellites are always very popular photo opportunities but are also useful props to explain the tech on our satellites

SSTL CEO, Matt Perkins, greets ESA DG, Jean-Jacques Dordain, and Magali Vaissiere, ESA Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications on Space Day

SSTL CEO Matt Perkins is introduced to Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, the UK's new Minister for Universities and Science in the Space Zone

Getting pretty crowded on one of the public days in the Space Zone

SSTL's stand is staffed by volunteers at the weekend - who are rewarded with a visit to the stand by British Astronaut, Tim Peake


We don't get much time to see the planes, but one of our team managed to step outside to see the F18 jet doing a fly past UPSIDE DOWN to wow the crowds!
