    • 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.
