News New Centre of Excellence in space Luleå University of Technology and Swedish Space Corporation, SSC, deepens their collaboration. Thanks to a cooperation agreement with SSC, the university starts a Centre of Excellence within space, Centre for Space Technology. Space campus from space Kiruna Space Campus has been captured from space by the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. Space focus for European University Luleå University of Technology has been selected European University. This means that a collaboration between five European universities has been granted five million euros to increase student mobility in Europe. The focus of the collaboration is education in space. "Starting to study here was the big adventure I was looking for" AI to navigate space exploration in new innovation partnership A new Swedish research project will develop game-changing AI-technology for space exploration. Scientists in robotics and AI are teaming up with space engineers in a new partnership project between Luleå University of Technology and space mission operator OHB Sweden. Over a five year period, RIT2021... Students and companies meet at LiftOff LiftOff is a job fair at Kiruna Space Campus focusing on space related work opportunities, arranged by students for students. – Through LiftOff, both students and companies are winning something, says Ioana-Simona Rosca, student and Project Manager for LiftOff. The Government's investment in Esrange of great importance to Luleå University of Technology The government’s investment of 90 million SEK over three years, is specifically meant to enable orbital launches from Esrange – in particular launching small satellites into low Earth orbit. This will also lead to more flight opportunities for LTU’s nano satellites just “next door” to the Kiruna spa... Exoplanets studied were similar to Earth Researchers in Atmospheric Science at Luleå University of Technology have developed a new way to determine habitability of exoplanets. By studying the atmospheres of the planets, they found at least 45 exoplanets with Earth-like properties. Panel discussion on space Space Kiruna has arranged a panel discussion with, among others, Olle Persson, operational manager at Luleå University of Technology. All-time-high interest in Space Innovation Forum More interest than ever as the recurring space conference went online for the very first time. Over 150 stakeholders from industry, academia, policy-making, venture capital and startups to discuss business within satellite data. The conference was arranged by RIT2021. New platform for safer missions in space The research group in Onboard Space Systems has developed a new instrument, a frictionless platform, for replicating how a spacecraft moves in orbit. The aim is to make future space missions safer and more fuel-efficient. International Students in Kiruna This week a total of 40 students have started their education in Kiruna. RIT2021 presents new partnership between university and SSC Researchers at Luleå University of Technology will develop models to provides an even deeper understanding of the radio environment at SSC space center Esrange, located in northern Sweden. As the space industry and demand for satellite data increases globally, SSC is aiming to increase capacity with... Student experiment on sounding rocket Space students at Luleå University of Technology will develop an attitude control system for free falling experiments from sounding rockets. This within the framework of the REXUS/BEXUS student programme. Launch of SME aerospace business development program The program, Business Development for Aerospace (BDA) is tailored to help small and medium enterprises (SME’s) tap the aerospace market, increasing awareness of business opportunities and needs within this rapidly growing industry as well as connecting SME’s with potential customers.
