Panel: Industry 4.0, Advanced Manufacturing and the Impact on the Space Sector –
Opportunities and Market Outlook?
Industry 4.0 has revolutionised manufacturing through increased automation, data exchange and cognitive computing among many other aspects. In space, advanced manufacturing can be split into 2 main sectors – terrestrial manufacturing and in-orbit manufacturing. Advancements in material sciences and 3-D printing has allowed the industry to re-think sub-system designs, materials used and manufacturing processes on-ground. On the other hand, the advent of in-orbit microgravity manufacturing has opened up new possibilities such as organ printing, space habitats and more which have created new factions within the industry to explore and expand more efficiently. What are some new technologies to watch out for? What is the vision for the future in advanced manufacturing in the space industry and how can we achieve this goal?

Space is a team sport; it is challenging and requires global collaboration. The global space ecosystem is expanding, with more countries and companies entering the sector every year. Do we all understand our role? Can we develop highly integrated markets and mature global supply chains that effectively and efficiently unite the sector? The United Kingdom (UK) has been very active to support the development and growth of its sector for many years. Space is moving into a new commercial era but still needs Governments to drive and support growth; how do we best invest public money to deliver growth? The UK has an end-to-end offer for space enterprises. We have a renowned science and technology sector, a strong talent pipeline, and a leading satellite manufacturing and operations capability. These competences have come together to create world leading space clusters in the UK; the next challenge is to galvanise deeper cooperation and create an effective and resilient space ecosystem that can support global growth.
