Attending GSTC 2023 was incredibly helpful for the Space South Central cluster of UK Universities (Surrey, Southampton and Portsmouth). The presenting sessions were very informative; the companies exhibiting were high quality; and the opportunity to easily meet our researcher counterparts from Nanyang Technological University, A*Star and the National University of Singapore all enabled a series of extremely productive discussions that ultimately led to a funded international collaboration (between the UK and Singapore). That collaboration would not have happened if we had not attended GSTC.
GSTC is a key event for the Asia-Pacific region and we are very much looking forward to meeting with key industry players, forging new collaborations, and progressing with new opportunities for our InSpace Rideshare and InSpace Digital satellite services. Now that In-Space Missions is part of the BAE Digital Intelligence family we are particularly pleased to be able to participate in GSTC with our team in Singapore and be an integral part of the continued growth of the space sector in the region, as well as establishing and growing partnerships between the UK and Asia-Pacific.
ST Engineering is proud to contribute to the success of Singapore’s space ecosystem and be part of our national space journey. As GSTC highlights how space technology and satellite communications will shape our lives here in Asia, ST Engineering is proud to showcase our innovative satellite systems and analytical services at the conference, as well as utilize the event to exchange ideas, explore partnerships and business opportunities.
GSTC is an excellent platform. It's an excellent platform because it is an ecosystem. It is a conference where people share views on emerging topics and discuss what needs to be done, how to come together effectively to bring this industry forward. Cyber security has been on the table for several years and is now emerging as a major topic here and I think this is of the utmost importance. Thank you, Jonathan, and thank you GSTC for this amazing opportunity.
Working in PR, comms and marketing, I've been working with the SSTL team before GSTC in the planning stages and I can tell you that SSTL has been so responsive and almost very like flexible in terms of making sure that Dhruva Space’s technologies and potential conversations are done in the best way possible that can fit the kind of ecosystem that's here at GSTC. So it's, you know, it's going from the planning stages to actual execution and being here, it's been a dream and I really look forward to GSTC 2024 the years to come.
I enjoyed the vitality of the exhibition. It has been productive in terms of direct connections with people. Singapore is a nice hub for Asia, Both the Far East, the South Asia are quite present in this region so this is the main reason and the best part of of this event. Most likely yes, we will be back next year.
I always call it as a boutique event because it's so familiar and it's actually the opportunity to meet all the people in the business, in the space business, especially in Asia, Singaporean and Asia. But it also attracts a lot of international players so it's actually so small and cozy and familiar that you can meet everybody in these two days. So I really like the familiar feeling of the boutique feeling of GSTC. I will definitely be back [for] next year’s GSTC.
This is my first GSTC in person and I think it's beyond my objective, beyond my goal. Before I came here, I thought that I can learn something like you know new business in this area, and also to meet some friends. When I come here, I'd see visions for many people, and from like leaders in Asia, in other parts of our world, and also I see opportunity. Not only that, we also do business matching with many companies around the world. I think SIngapore is a very cool country, nice country, and also the GSTC is one of the best space forums in the world. Of course, we will come back.
The GSTC is a key annual event for an innovative spacecraft mission specialist like Surrey Satellite Technology to meet with its global partners, take part in industry shaping panels and provide updates on its activities.
GSTC is an excellent partnership and innovative technology information exchange platform for companies interested in the Asia Pacific region. Taking advantage of this platform, HKATG is sharing with the world its advanced large-scale satellite manufacturing centre and the superior facilities of the satellite TT&C and data application services, with the provision of its own Golden Bauhinia satellite constellation. By participating in GSTC2023, HKATG is gaining more opportunities to serve the global commercial space industry better and largely and actively promote the vigorous development of the global space industry.
This event is bringing a good benefit for us because it's intimate and very focused event. Space industry is very clearly here, I'd say from an industrial point of view, very clearly benefiting all of us, that we can have that opportunity here. We will be back again.
So, first of all, this has been a wonderful event. Really a wonderful event. I've learned a lot in these sessions. But I think the best thing about being at meetings like this is networking. And this event actually brings us from Israel to network with Asian partners. While we're part of Asia, we don't feel part of Asia most of the time, and at this event we can really meet our Asian colleagues, meet the companies here and develop new partnerships and collaborations.
As a leader in Earth Observation analytics, Preligens attends GSTC 2023 as it is the place-to-be in APAC to exchange knowledge on space technologies. We are proud to participate and look forward to displaying our latest products and deepening partnerships and business opportunities.
Synspective is excited to be part of the GSTC community. GSTC is a great communication platform to share the advantages of SAR satellites and our knowledge about Earth Observation. GSTC provides us opportunities to establish co-work partnerships, and accelerate our business.
Having so many space agencies here, so many people from academia, and also so many companies here, talking about what we're doing, what capabilities are out there, what the challenges are, what the goals are for the future, I think is just great. So I think I see GSTC growing more in the future, and I'm very happy with my participation this year.
To me, [GSTC] is a tremendous platform to open up between the players in the space technology ecosystem so we can share the dynamic of the technology, the potential of the technology, even we can create some good strategic collaboration between the member states, especially in the region. So you see, the GSTC is not only meant for the region but it's a worldwide participation. You can have from Europe, you can have from America. So this is a healthy environment [where] the technology ecosystem can grow further so it will definitely benefit all people who are participating in the GSTC.
I think GSTC plays quite a critical role. I think it's a good magnet to discuss a range of topics, not just space but beyond obviously space as well, because it's a broader kind of technology convention and a conference. What I see is actually a number of companies converging and coming together. So I think that relationship, the face to face relationship at a face to face conference is absolutely critical. I really hope, along with a number of UK companies, UK academia, that the companies here from Singapore, also the academics, have found this convention equally useful. And if I'm obviously going to fast forward myself to the next year, we will be absolutely be back.
Well, my experience is excellent. My mission here is to meet with some of the public service and industrial leaders, and that agenda has been met very well. So I have to appreciate the organiser of GSTC for that. I hope I could come back here again next year.
We love being here at GSTC 2023. We've been to several GSTCs in the past, primarily from our office in Singapore, and our science directors which are located in that office. We'll definitely be back next year. We love all hospitality from our Singaporean friends and partners. It's really exciting to be here. Our hosts have been very, very friendly. food's been fantastic. We love everything about Singapore. So thank you very much for having us and we look forward to being here in the future.
GSTC should be commended for its depth of insight into industry trends and technologies updates while at the same time providing great opportunities for us to connect and do business with key industry players within this growing sector.
GSTC is a great place to present our innovative products and satellite systems. As a top tier world leader in space technologies and solutions, we see the industry leaders come to GSTC together to exchange knowledge on the latest innovations, deepen partnerships and seek new solutions and business opportunities. IAI is proud to participating in GSTC as it is a gateway for companies interested in the Asia Pacific region, and you would see us back in 2023.
The satellite communications industry is an exciting and fast-growing one, with growing business and career opportunities. There are many technology innovations shaping the satellite communications industry today, including High Throughput Satellites and small satellite constellations for communications. It is therefore vital for Singapore to build up new capabilities, such as inter-satellite LEO-GEO communications, to support the growth of this industry.
Astroscale has been attending GSTC for many years. It is truly a valuable platform, providing us with high intensity networking opportunities with suppliers, customers from outside the industry, VCs and thought leaders in the space industry. We hope to contribute to the dialogue by sharing best practices and addressing pressing issues for the responsible use of space.
GSTC has brought together global thought leaders, subject matter experts and end-users in the space ecosystem. It is a place to get a pulse of the fast evolving Asian space industries, to meet new business partners and uncover new opportunities.
