The Satellite Network brings together Satellite/Space professionals to network and hear about new developments in all aspects of Satellites and Space including commercial, industrial, and military applications from earth observation, space based navigation, space science missions, space situational awareness and satellite communications.

Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the home of the IET Satellite Technical Network covering all things Space. We would love to hear from you about working with the TN and bringing forward any ideas to help further Space Engineering.

Our Key Topics

The Network’s current focus is on the following topics:

  • Future reconfigurable communications satellites
  • Hybrid observation/navigation and communications satellites in Space
  • Space Domain Awareness and debris mitigation
  • Space security and Space Cyber emergence
  • Developing local Space Engineering networks


STOP PRESS - Please note that our LEOs/MEOs Webinar on 23 November 2023 has been cancelled.  We hope to be able to rearrange this for 2024 and apologise for any incovenience caused.

The TN engages in annual programme of activities many of which are in collaboration with external stakeholder activities i.e. British Interplanetary Society on the UK Heat of the IAF competition, UK Students for Exploration & Discovery in Space (UKSEDS) Conference, Royal International Air Tattoo and World Space Week.

The TN also collaborates with the IET commercial events team on the Milsatcoms conference and Satcoms course.
