SPACE PAVILION, A MEETING PLACE FOR STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY AT FIDAE 2024


It will be in Hall D, where several companies will exhibit their progress, which will be on display from April 9 to 14 on the north side of the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport, in Santiago, Chile.


With more than 40 years of trajectory, the International Air and Space Fair, FIDAE, is an exhibition dedicated to present technologies in Aerospace, Defense, and Security. This allows to position Chile as a referent in Latin America, and the Chilean Air Force as a relevant stakeholder in the Space Technology sector and its contribution to national development. The Fair is the main platform to spread a variety of technologies in Aerospace, Industrial, and Scientific matters.

The importance of the Space Pavilion is that it seeks to gather all the space interests and themes that will be on exhibition at the Fair, with the aim of reinforcing this area that uses state-of-the-art technology.

The Chilean Space Association (ACHIDE by its acronym in Spanish), will be an important actor, which, from the civil point of view, will attract a big audience related to this field. ACHIDE’s goal is to promote, protect, and spread activities related to the space and the development of all kinds of satellite activities. All this, while ensuring the correct application and improvement of public and private policies on this matter, and especially encouraging the study and use of science, and space technology in benefit of a sustainable development of mankind.

Some of the national companies or organizations that will participate are: Esri; Globalsat; Space Operations Group and the Air Force Aerial Photogrammetric Service; KnowHub; Raster 4; Tesacom; Universidad de Chile; Universidad de Concepción; and Universidad Mayor. The international companies or organizations are: the Czech Republic Space Agency; Engineering and Software Systems Solutions (ES3); Hughes Network; Planet Labs; Satlantis from Spain and SES Satellites from the Netherlands. In total, there will be more than 20 companies located in 300 square meters that will be part of this Thematic Pavilion.
