Present and future space workforce challenges and needs. Some examples may be the next generation of space leaders, space education and “STEM and beyond”-related topics for future workforce development.


  • Space Policy

Space Policy and governance topics, treaties, space policy issues.


  • Space Exploration/Sciences

All the things people and space probes are doing to find out more about what’s in space, on planets and other heavenly bodies, astronomy, etc.


  • Mission Space

For those who are conducting business, defense, and civil missions using things in orbit. This could be in-space satellite deployments, in-space manufacturing, etc.


  • Space Data Products and Services

This would include things like “big data,” new space-originated tech, etc.


  • LaunchTime

Launch vehicles and deployers, current and future activities.


  • Space Situational Awareness

This includes being aware of objects orbiting the Earth, near Earth objects, space weather, and other things that impact satellite operations and Earth’s inhabitants.


  • Mission Assurance

Applied/recommended techniques and lessons learned to reduce risk for those working to get to space, and those working in space.


  • Proposed Space Technology/Service Solutions to Terrestrial Challenges

An exploration of challenges here on Earth to which space might provide solutions.


Emphasis should be given to recent issues, activities, or emerging technologies.


Past Tech Track presenters ranged in age, profession, and background. Students have presented their ideas at Tech Track, as have engineers, professors, and lawyers. Whether from Europe, Japan, the U.S., or other nations, Tech Track presenters provided valuable information and insight in the challenges they’ve faced and overcome.
