HPA will proceed with planned activities held in conjunction with the National Space Symposium (NSS) in Colorado Springs, despite the reductions in funded travel for U.S. Government employees and contractors. HPA activities at NSS are anchored by the full day program “Hosted Payloads Key Issues Workshop” on Monday, April 8, 2013, 8:45 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. HPA will also present a one-hour panel discussion, “Hosted Payloads: Issues & Evolution,” on Wednesday April 10 at 4 p.m.
Local representatives from Air Force Space Command will participate in the interactive full day workshop in person, whereas government representatives from Hampton, Virginia, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. will participate via live two-way video connections at NASA Langley Research Center (laRC) U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and NASA Headquarters, respectively.
The Workshop will facilitate open dialogue between government and industry, tackling key issues that are potential obstacles for more widespread use of hosted payloads. It is ideal for government or industry participants who have working knowledge of the subject matter and are able to materially contribute to the dialogue for advancement of the hosted payload model.
For those in Washington, DC, the local contact at NASA will be Elise A. Nelson, firstname.lastname@example.org. Office: 202-358-1412. The live video feed will be located in Glennan Conference Room 1035 at NASA Headquarters. Contact and site information for SMC and laRC will be provided shortly.
