Industries & expertise
The impacts of space research are not confined only to the world far above us but permeate into the world around us too.
Imperial College London’s Space Lab draws upon expertise from across all the Faculties at Imperial and ICON’s consultants are able to bring their space expertise to a range of applications from those traditionally associated with space exploration to missions much closer to home.
For example communication systems employed in space, such as tracking and image capture devices can, and have been, adapted for everyday applications including helping you navigate your way through the city with a GPS system.
We have expertise in the following areas:
Natural and space hazards expertise
Impact, climate change, weather, risk assessment, mitigation, insurance, physiology and health and air pollution.
Space science expertise
Astrostatistics, astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, planetary science, heliospheric and space physics and exploitation processes.
Space technology expertise
Materials, sensors, spacecraft design, mission design, calibration facilities, robotics, satellites, sub-systems and deployables.
Space observation and communication expertise
Remote sensing, instrument design and operation, data analysis and visualisation, software systems, positioning systems, navigation systems and signal processing.
Whether you need help with natural and space hazards, or need access to expert knowledge within space science and technology, or observation and communication, we can find the right people to help you solve a problem flexibly and responsively.
