Title: Crossover Space: Emerging Concepts for Space Systems

Abstract

The days of “traditional” space missions (large satellites and risk avoidance on electronics) has been replaced by “small space”, risk management, and a rapidly growing commercial presence.

This topical day discusses two sides of the burgeoning changes:

  • Selective emerging electronic technologies that provide potential enabling characteristics for the new regime of space
  • Alternative concepts for systems risk management and evaluation
