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.
