The Immortal Spaceship: A Discussion on the Use Cases and Value of Persistent Platforms

Future civil, commercial, and defense space missions will be ambitious, requiring new technologies and operational paradigms. One of these new paradigms is the use of On-orbit Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing (OSAM) to enable large, persistent, upgradable, and maintainable spacecraft. A persistent platform uses OSAM capabilities to provide spacecraft bus functions to payloads and instruments while also capable of being expanded and upgraded over time. Please join a lively discussion with your government, commercial, and academic colleagues that explores the use cases, value proposition, and technology development needs for a persistent platform and other OSAM applications.
