Affordable access to space was once a dream, but is now a reality for millions of cutting-edge businesses, governments, research organizations and academic institutions around the world, thanks to the miniaturization of space technology. While the demand for hosted payloads and small satellites is increasing at a stunning rate, satellite manufacturers have in turn compressed their production cycles to the point where new spacecraft can be produced in a matter of months, even weeks!
All of this exciting development has opened the door for brand new challenges and questions across industries. At the 2015 Hosted Payload and Smallsat Summit, industry-leading professionals will supply you with the latest knowledge, technology and trends to help you leave with the answers you need.
Brought to you by the producers of the SATELLITE Conference & Exhibition, the Hosted Payload and Smallsat Summit is a full-day event of comprehensive workshops and forums led by representatives from commercial, government, military, civil space and academic research markets, along with industry networking sessions and an evening reception. The Summit brings the satellite community together to discuss the trade-offs and attributes of hosted payloads and smallsats, and how they fit into mission configuration.
