SpaceAM 2021

Tuesday, 14 - Wednesday, 15 Sep 2021

Leicester

SpaceAM is a conference and exhibition highlighting the use of advanced materials in space technology, is taking place at Leicester Racecourse, UK on 14th-15th September 2021.

We are living in a world that is critically dependent on space technology and with that comes the need for advanced materials to deliver the best possible opportunities and outcomes for the space industry.

SpaceAM will give you the chance to discover and join the growing global community that is working together to develop and launch innovation in orbit and beyond.

A variety of experts will share their knowledge and experience over two days, covering topics including:

  • Advanced materials for space technology
  • Lightweighting for spacecraft and structures
  • Low orbit antenna/satellites
  • Small Satellites
  • Future innovations
  • Orbital Manufacturing
  • AM for Space: The UK Government Perspective
  • European Space Agency Manufacturing Initiative
  • Case studies – the TUPOD Project

Meet the NCC

We're exhibiting at SpaceAM this year so please come along and see us at our stand. Sean Cooper, Chief Engineer for Defence and Space, is also presenting at the event about the role of composites in space applications.
