The 74th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) will be held by the International Astronautical Federation from 2-6 October 2023 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The IAC serves as a valuable platform that unites people from around the world to tackle global challenges and explore the potential of space for the betterment of humanity.
This year, the global space community will gather once again in Baku for the IAC, 50 years after the city hosted the 24th edition, making it the only city in the region to do so. This is a significant milestone in Azerbaijan's efforts to establish a regional space ecosystem and strengthen its position as an emerging space nation.
The IAC 2023 is expected to attract more than 5000 participants to Baku, providing them with an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in space while experiencing the unique Azerbaijani hospitality and culture.
Iliad Partner, Tessa Buckley (dotSPACE) will give a 12 minute oral presentation at the event. In addition, Tessa will contribute a paper entitled 'Saving Lives by Integrating Space-Based Solutions'. The study will consider how integrating advancing technology, AI and space-based solutions can save lives at sea by improving the accuracy and efficiency of the information available to multi-agency rescue workers. The paper will consider the role of emerging Digital Twins of the Ocean using Iliad pilot DTOs as case studies. The presentation/paper is categorised under the Symposium B5 - IAF Symposium On Integrated Applications.
