Abstract

Prof. Craig Underwood is Deputy Director of the Surrey Space Centre at the University of Surrey. He has over 33 years’ experience of small-satellite design, development and research. Craig heads the Sensors and Platform Systems Group within the Surrey Space Centre, which has the remit of developing the instruments, systems and data processing techniques needed to investigate the Earth and other planetary environments from space. A particular focus of the group is on the development of low-mass, low-volume and low-power “micro-instrumentation” suitable for use on micro/nano-satellite and UAV platforms, as well as the development of bus technologies for such platforms. The lecture will describe some of these activities ranging from monitoring the radiation environment and its effects, the development and application of various optical instruments, to proposals for novel low cost radar constellations.
