GLOBAL NETWORKING FORUM
OOS and Related Technologies Enabling Next-Gen Space Missions and Ultimate Exploration

Wednesday 23 October 2019, 17:05 – 17:45
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom A

In light of up-taking exploration missions, first commercial satellite life extension missions and numerous global efforts to implement space system modularity and plug-and-play concepts, as well as next-gen standards for space (e.g. via CONFERS or the Deep Space Interoperability Standards) the session will address thriving issues with a distinguished panel of industry and agency representatives driving top-notch on-orbit servicing (OOS), on-orbit-assembly (OOA), on-orbit manufacturing (OOM), new operational concepts and business models, and supporting concomitant activities and standard developments.

Global Satellite Servicing Forum (GSSF) 2019

October 1-2, 2019

CONFERS will host its second Global Satellite Servicing Forum (GSSF) at the FHI 360 Conference Center in Washington, DC. This is the premier annual event for discussing industry-led operational standards, as well as technology, market, and policy developments in on-orbit satellite servicing and maintenance capabilities (including manufacturing and assembly). These areas are emerging as the cornerstone of future commercial and civil space activities.

We hope to see there!

Save The Date: Third Satellite Servicing Technology Transfer Industry Day

Save The Date: Third Satellite Servicing Technology Transfer Industry Day

With this synopsis, NASA encourages domestic companies to save the date for the third industry day addressing satellite servicing technologies on December 6th, 2018 at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and requests suggestions for the content of industry day. The focus of this industry day will be technology being developed by the Satellite Servicing Projects Division (SSPD) that would facilitate servicing of spacecraft in space, including cooperative servicing aids, features, or devices that complement on-going NASA development and could be used in various servicing areas. Companies may also be interested in these technologies to ensure that their spacecraft can be easily serviced by incorporating cooperative servicing aids.
