The conference’s topic – Artificial Intelligence follows the trends in the development of artificial intelligence in space, where top experts from Croatia and Europe spoke. Also, the sponsors of the conference were the Zagreb Tourist Board, the University of Zadar, and Visage Technologies.
The Adriatic Aerospace Association is closely working with individuals from top experts to students, companies, and scientific institutions, directly or indirectly linked to space science and technology. The activities of the A3 extend in several directions, and one of the main ones is international cooperation, especially regional. This conference was aimed at this type of cooperation, to bring together experts, companies, and scientific institutions on a topic related to space technology and space development.
My lecture was focused on Slovakia’s success story. I provided a historical overview of the development of space technology and space science in Slovakia from the early 60-70 years, the results achieved, and especially the current success of Spacemanic development of satellite technology. I made the first announcement of the A3 and Spacemanic’s joint project, to build the first Croatian satellite that should be launched in 2023. The satellite is called CroCube and measures 10 x 10 x 10 cm.
