You are invited to attend Improving Space Operations Workshop 2021, organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Space Operations & Support Technical Committee (SOSTC). This year's workshop will be held in April 2021 (dates TBD) at the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility (NSOF) in Suitland, MD and is jointly sponsored by AIAA, the SpaceOps Organization, Pearl River Technologies, Omitron, a.i. solutions, and ASRC Federal.
The objectives of the workshop are:
- Investigate the development, implementation, and operation of systems that support space related activities.
- Focus on operations technologies associated with space operations infrastructure, including the internet and other commercial technologies.
- Develop positions on operational issues needing AIAA input from a cross section of member expertise.
- Identify approaches and standards for making operations more affordable, more flexible, more productive, and safer.
As in past years, the emphasis will be on small groups working to advance the level of understanding in several technical areas relevant to space operations. For any questions, please contact SOSTC-Workshop@lists.swri.org.Note: Due to the workshop being on a US government facility, restrictions will be in place for non-US citizens. Only employees (not contractors) of the following space agencies are welcomed to register and participate (JAXA, CNES, ESA, DLR, ASI, CSA, ISRO). Those individuals will need to be registered no later than TBD. Picture ID issued by the respective space agency will be required.
