Dr. Eng. Krzysztof Kanawka
Currently, the CEO of Blue Dot solutions, a company which specializes in the “lower space sector” – practical applications of satellite techniques on Earth. Mr. Kanawka has been active in the space sector for over 10 years, including European satellite education programmes. In 2015 – 2016 Dr. Eng. Kanawka coordinated the POSITION project – the first space-themed project in the Horizon 2020 programme with a Polish leader. Space3ac was developed partially based on the experience of that project. At present, Space3ac focuses on satellite techniques in the transport sector.
What is more, in the late 2016 and early 2017, Dr. Eng. Kanawka was the leader of a review project for promising space technologies for the Polish Space Agency. The project focused on technological analysis of fields like telecommunications, satellite navigation or Solar System exploration as well as presentation of opportunities and threats for Poland in the space industry. In the coming two years, Mr Kanawka will participate in two significant projects completed as a part of the Horizon 2020 programme. More will be known about the two projects in early 2018.
