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.
