The foremost and oldest exhibition in Latin America is already working on its latest edition, FIDAE 2022. On Wednesday 21 April, a meeting was held to coordinate the most important conference of the Chilean exhibition: the FIDAE 2022 Space Summit, the organisers said in a statement.
The second edition of the “Space Summit” to take place in FIDAE will represent a meeting point for the organisations involved in the national space system. This Summit will offer a place to discuss and analyse the different planned stages for the next few years with the incorporation of new satellites, the construction of a national space centre, which considers among other capabilities:
- the implementation of a laboratory
- a mission control centre
- satellite ground stations.
The activity was held online and led by the Space Affairs Deputy Director of the Chilean Air Force, Colonel Luis Saez, as well as the FIDAE CEO, Francisco Ramirez. Several other institutions connected to the space field also participated.
The International Air and Space Fair will take place from April 5th to 10th, 2022, at the northern side of the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport in Santiago, Chile.
