9th Asia-Pacific Space Generation Workshop 2023

Bengaluru, India

The Asia-Pacific NewSpace ecosystem is currently going through significant changes as a result of the space sector’s transition, which is being fuelled by increased investment, predominant private players involvement, and the emergence of NewSpace businesses with cutting-edge plans and revenue streams. Private players are taking center stage in this new ecosystem as they strive on doing space business independently of governments in the long run. Asia’s spacefaring nations have autonomously established their own strategies and ecosystems for space operations that are entrenched in their dominant political, commercial, and economic regional landscapes. Therefore, the time has come to address the space ecosystem from a technological, commercial, and socioeconomic perspective with a goal to facilitate the sustainable development of the NewSpace ecosystem in the Asia-Pacific region. This year, the 9th Asia-Pacific regional SGAC event is happening in Bengaluru, the Aerospace hub of India. Bengaluru has a huge number of aerospace PSUs and start-ups that support the NewSpace ecosystem.

SPACEtacular: An interstellar collaboration between PhilSA, BatStateU – AEROESS, and SGAC


The Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA), the Batangas State University (BatStateU) - Aerospace Engineering Students' Society (AEROESS), and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) have joined forces to hold the very first online webinar dubbed “SPACEtacular”, which will take students, researchers, and other young space enthusiasts on an exciting opportunity to learn about the recent advancements in space technology, research, and innovation. This interstellar collaboration will embark on the overview of the Philippine Satellite Program and will uncover the fundamental concepts on lean satellite missions and utilization, small satellite systems engineering, and the general satellite project management process to be delivered by Filipino engineers who pioneered in the development of the Philippine’s small satellites. Join us as we learn their incredible achievements in promoting and sustaining a robust Philippine space ecosystem that adds and creates value in space for and from Filipinos and for the world.

7th Africa Space Generation Workshop 2023

University of Zimbabwe 630 Churchill Ave, Harare, Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe

The 7th African Space Generation Workshop (AF-SGW) is a two-day workshop, which brings together students, young professionals, industry experts and government stakeholders from across the African continent. It provides an unparalleled opportunity for the future leaders of Africa’s space sector to proactively establish strong relationships, exchange ideas and knowledge, and to collaborate on novel ways in which space technology can be utilized for the benefit of Africa. The 7th AF-SGW will take place on the 29th and 30th November 2023 in Harare, Zimbabwe. The theme for this workshop is ‘A New Era for African Space Market: Unleashing Potential for Prosperity’ and participants will be divided into working groups (WGs), each focusing on a specific sub-theme broadly covering Space Applications, Space Policy and Law, Space Technology, Capacity building and Space Business Opportunities.

Fast and Accurate Probability of Collision Toolkits for Near-Earth and Cislunar Applications


With increasing traffic in near-Earth and Cislunar space, it has become essential to develop fast and accurate methods of predicting collisions between space objects. This is an important topic of discussion in current Space Situational Awareness (SSA) domain research. Orbit determination methods provide users with a state and an uncertainty associated with an object in space. This tells the user where the spacecraft is and with what percent certainty. Because there are limited observation resources, it is essential to have the ability to propagate this information to desired times accurately. Generally, this is accomplished using numerical Monte Carlo methods, where a point cloud of millions of points is taken from the initial uncertainty and each of these points are propagated to the final time. This is highly accurate with a large number of points but adds to a high computational expense. To minimize this cost, we look for analytical and semi-analytical methods that are faster but can still reach good statistical accuracy. This seminar will focus on an introduction to SSA, collision prediction methods, and the semi-analytical toolkits developed to achieve fast and accurate collision probabilities. The target audience is students and young professionals interested in SSA research and tools.
