NASA Headquarters, James E. Webb Auditorium
300 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20546
WHO: The Interagency Space Science and Technology Partnership Forum (S&T Partnership) is an informal body for the purpose of coordinating science and technology issues across the space agencies of the United States Government in order to more efficiently and effectively manage science and technology resources. The goal of the S&T Partnership is to leverage synergies and influence portfolios across space agencies in areas deemed pervasive and ready for collaboration. The principal partners of the S&T Partnership are the United States Air Force, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Reconnaissance Office. This event is open to U.S. citizens and U.S.-owned companies, with a special focus toward the space, science and technology industry and federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs).
WHAT: Open Forum: Information Exchange for Market Analysis of Commercial In-Space Assembly Activities
WHERE: Morning session: James E. Webb Auditorium
Afternoon one-on-one sessions: Glennan Conference Room
WHY: The S&T Partnership seeks to identify opportunities for development and demonstration of in-space assembly capabilities that provide mutual benefit to future government and commercial operational space missions by leveraging developments across government and industry.
The one-day Open Forum will engage government space agencies in dialog with commercial companies to learn more about commercial investments in in-space assembly (iSA)-related systems, capability developments, and how these systems and developments relate to iSA capability needs of government space agencies within the S&T Partnership. Commercial companies will learn about the S&T Partnership landscape of iSA activities and will be allowed to sign up for one-on-one sessions with the partnership’s iSA panel to engage in dialog regarding the company’s vision for iSA and plans to infuse iSA into their business lines.
The purpose of the Open Forum is to understand the current state of commercial investments in in-space assembly related systems and capability developments and how they may fit with the in-space assembly capability needs of any of the partners. The S&T Partnership is interested in in-space assembly related capabilities either currently available or under development, and spacecraft system developments that can be used to perform or demonstrate in-space assembly. The partnership intends to analyze the Open Forum one-on-one responses and answers to questionnaires to identify potential development synergies.
All information obtained through this Open Forum will be used to help formulation of S&T Partnership recommendations for collaboration and strategies for future development of in-space assembly capabilities.
