The government‐sponsored Foresight programme, begun four years ago with the aim of bringing together industrial companies with academic and research organisations to improve the competitiveness of the British economy, has now entered a second round of activity focusing on developing its range of tasks. In the area of sensing technology three themes are being taken up for collaboration by Sira during the coming year: industry and the environment; security and observation; and Earth observation. Last November Sira sponsored a conference to introduce these themes and recently Professor Richard Brook, director of Sira, and Anne Burns, technology marketing manager, talked to Jack Hollingum about the way ahead.
