In June 2010, STAR-Dundee was invited, by Academy of Opto-Electronics (AOE) of Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), to give a very comprehensive seminar including many aspects of SpaceWire technology and STAR-Dundee SpaceWire equipments.
We were also glad to give working and live demonstrations of our USB Router, USB Brick, Link Analyser, Validation Software and Conformance Tester. All of the items featured in the demonstration, along with other available hardware and software can be viewed in the SpaceWire test and development equipment page. Alternatively, you can email email@example.com for more information.
With previous conferences being held in Dundee, Scotland (2007) and Nara, Japan (2008), the International SpaceWire Conference comes to St. Petersburg, Russia in 2010.
From the 22nd – 24th June STAR-Dundee will attend to demonstrate current tools to support the users and developers of SpaceWire equipment, participate in shaping the future of SpaceWire, and also, importantly, realise the needs and desires of the SpaceWire community. We would enjoy hearing your opinions and feedback, and showing you what we have to offer, so be sure to visit STAR-Dundee and meet the team. More information is available from the official website here.
Hosted in Budapest, Hungary, STAR-Dundee exhibited a range of new products along with technical presentations on their new capabilities.
Some of the presentations featured SpaceWire, including Steve Parkes’ “New SpaceWire Protocols and Tools”. The full conference proceedings are to be published within two months, but in the meantime a summary of the final programme can be found here. Also, further information on the new range of improved STAR-Dundee Mk2 products will be available on the STAR-Dundee SpaceWire products page shortly.
One hundred and forty scientists and engineers from 30 organisations in China and the UK attended the 6th UK-China Workshop on Space Science and Technology held in Wuhan, China.
On this workshop, STAR-Dundee presented the features of SpaceWire, reasons why SpaceWire and the SpaceWire products available from STAR-Dundee. We were glad to see the excitement and enormous interest brought by Chinese delegates. Please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, for the presentation slides or more information.
STAR-Dundee were very honoured to be invited along to the Japanese SpaceWire Users Meeting, held at the University of Tokyo. Several companies and agencies gave presentations on missions that were using SpaceWire, all of which proved to be very exciting.
This was a great opportunity for STAR-Dundee to update the Japanese SpaceWire community on our range of products. We were also glad to give working demonstrations of our USB Router (now replaced by the SpaceWire Router Mk2), USB Brick, Link Analyser (now replaced by the SpaceWire Link Analyser Mk2), Validation Software and CUBA software and also help test a Japanese router with our Conformance Tester and Link Analyser (now replaced by the SpaceWire Link Analyser Mk2).
All of the items featured in the demonstration, along with other available hardware and software can be viewed in the products page. Alternatively, you can email email@example.com for more information.
STAR-Dundee have recently expanded their company to include 6 new employees! We would like to give them a very big ‘welcome onboard’ and hope that you have the opportunity to meet them at a variety of SpaceWire, and aerospace, conferences which are attended by STAR-Dundee. Most notably the 3rd International SpaceWire Conference in 2010, more on that to follow.
The “Our Team” page will be updated shortly, and in the meantime you can read a short bio on Alex Mason, Lisa Rodway, Doug Roberts, Pete Scott, Paul McKechnie, and Bruce Guoxia YU and all other members of the STAR-Dundee team here.
Japan showed exceptional hospitality in the truely beautiful city of Nara during the 2nd International SpaceWire Conference. The conference, attended by many SpaceWire users and developers, which proved to be a great success, included impressive tradional Japanese events.
STAR-Dundee exhibited at the conference which brought together both academics, industrialists and enthusiasts. We look forward to attending the 3rd International SpaceWire Conference in Russia, and for more information on the hardware and software included in the exhibit visit the products page, or email a member of the STAR-Dundee team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2008 IAC was well attended by delegates across the world. STAR-Dundee joined forces with Clydespace to exhibit a Scottish stand. At which STAR-Dundee demonstrated transmitting pictures from a camera, over SpaceWire, to display them on a TV. SpaceWire interfaces can be seen at the SpaceWire products page.
Amongst the many famous visitors was Bridget XMR Rover. Incidentally, the XMR Rover uses SpaceWire to connect its science navigation cameras to its onboard data-handling systems
Following the success of the First International SpaceWire Conference, STAR-Dundee is pleased to be taking part in the Second International SpaceWire Conference, to be held from 4 to 6 November 2008 in Nara, Japan. STAR-Dundee will be participating in the industrial exhibition, while the University of Dundee will be presenting papers on recent research activities.
Dr Steve Parkes of STAR-Dundee was invited to be one of the key speakers at the UK/Japanese aerospace conference which took place in Japan in May 2007.
A summary of the conference is available on the Scottish Enterprise website
Recently Dr Steve Parkes of STAR-Dundee discussed how STAR-Dundee has become a world-leader in ‘SpaceWire technology‘, and how SDI and Scottish Enterprise have assisted them along the way.
You can watch the interview on YouTube.
STAR-Dundee is delighted to be taking part in the first International SpaceWire Conference, to be held from 17 to 19 September 2007 in Dundee, Scotland. The conference will be hosted by the University of Dundee, where the SpaceWire standard was written, and will be attended by representatives from industry and the major space agencies. Session topics will include SpaceWire missions and applications, SpaceWire components, SpaceWire onboard equipment and software, SpaceWire test and verification, SpaceWire networks and protocols and SpaceWire standardisation. There will also be an industrial exhibition, featuring STAR-Dundee as well as other major international suppliers of SpaceWire technology.
