The Making Efficiencies Using Satellites – ‘it’s not rocket science’ Discovery Day, hosted by Space for Smarter Government Programme (SSGP) and the DCLG Local Digital Programme, focused on accelerating the uptake of satellite-enabled services to make efficiencies and improve local services. The event covered:

  • the basics of satellite application opportunities for local services
  • how satellite data is already being used by local authorities
  • priorities for local authorities’ needs for satellite applications
  • co-designing a road map to improve local services and save money using satellite-enabled service

The day took place on 13 March 2015 in Oxfordshire and offered local government the opportunity to explore ways of collaborating with peers, the UK Space Agency and the Satellite Applications Catapult.
