By integrating multiple space systems (Telecommunication, Navigation, Earth Observation, Manned Space Technologies) with non-space assets, new and improved services can be created for a wide range of users.
The Integrated Applications Promotion Programme (IAP) of ESA, the European Space Agency, supports the development and validation of viable operational services relying on such a combination of systems.
ESA's IAP programme has partnered with the Swiss Space Office to establish an Ambassador Platform dedicated to fostering the development of integrated space-based applications with and for the Swiss industry: AP-Swiss.
AP-Swiss fosters the emergence and development of such integrated applications and services with and for the Swiss industry.
AP-Swiss will be at Lift14, the upcoming annual Lift Conference, in Geneva on 5-7 February 2014. This conference will gather more than 1000 participants from more than 30 countries.
AP-Swiss will ensure a strong presence at Lift14 (see www.liftconference.com/lift14) through:
