2 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A Importance of Innovation

3 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A0 3 Economic growth and welfare of a country or region are depending on the competitiveness and the innovation of its economic actors In a free market economy innovation is recognised as an important motor for economic growth Through innovation new products and services are created as well as more efficient processes. This involves the innovative idea and the transformation of this idea (invention) into a product or process that gets exploited on the market IMPORTANCE OF INNOVATION

5 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A0 5 Different actors with R&D involvement : R&D oriented companies Strong scientific base Government investment in education and research Collaboration between companies and research institutes enhances knowledge creation and diffusion Objectives of the different actors are different, but complementary COLLABORATION IN INNOVATION

6 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A0 6 Collaboration university and industry is a kind of Public/ private partnerships Advantages for companies : Access to recent scientific knowledge Experience of researchers Access to specailised equipment Advantages for researchers : Contribution to curricula of researchers Tune education more to industry needs Possibility for students to collaborate through internship, thesis or PhD COLLABORATION IN INNOVATION

12 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A0 12 The Energetic Particle Telescope : an Academia/Industry Project Example 4. Review of all ESA (ECSS Standards) & Flight Requirements (many hundreds of requirements) - Industry 5. Detailed Design & Analysis – I+A 6. Manufacturing, Assembly, Integration, Testing (functional & environmental) – I+A COLLABORATION AT QINETIQ SPACE : NEW PRODUCTS

13 QinetiQ Space nv Copyright © 2010 QinetiQ Space NV All rights reserved TEMPL-HO QS_A0 EPT Highly Innovative Science Class Radiation Spectrometer designed to detect, directly identify and measure the energy of electrons, protons, alpha particles and heavier ions in the space environment.  Contamination-free energetic particle data measurement : the EPT particle discrimination concept allows full discrimination at high energy without using a huge amount of sensor material.  Real-time flux measurement : the EPT can provide real-time (ready for use) flux measurements needed for detailed space weather forecasting.  Modularity : the EPT instrument can be easily reconfigured to fit user’s needs (angle of view, energy ranges and resolution, communication interfaces to spacecraft).  Low power, low mass : for a maximum envelope of 212 (length) x 162 (width) x 128 (height) mm³, the mass of EPT is smaller than 4.6kg and the instrument consumes less than 6W. 13 Product Example : Energetic Particle Telescope COLLABORATION AT QINETIQ SPACE : NEW PRODUCTS
