The UK Space Agency invites proposals to develop capability for the Welsh Public Sector by providing funding for satellite enabled technology and applications to support remote healthcare services in rural Welsh communities.

1. INTRODUCTION

This Open Call aims to develop capability for the Welsh Public Sector by providing funding for satellite enabled technology and applications to support remote healthcare services in rural Welsh communities. Interested parties must collaborate with a Welsh Public Sector body.

2. CRITERIA

Proposals should address both NSTP technology objectives and SSGP’s application objectives. The project must partner with a Welsh Public Sector body to develop innovative satellite enabled technology and applications.

By the end of the project there must be a solution, to the above question, that can be delivered ready for use. The solution must include satellite-based services using, for example, Position Navigation and Timing, Earth Observation, Telecommunications, to ensure a successful integration with currently available healthcare services.
