Space Tech Expo, military, government and academic organisations

The Space Tech conference will take place May 23-25, in Pasadena, USA


Space Tech Expo takes place in Pasadena, California, USA, from May 23-25, 2017. The event, which is free to attend, is designed to assist commercial, military, government and academic organisations in discovering the latest innovations and technology as well as navigating new business opportunities. People from all spheres of the sector are expected to attend, from industry leaders to decision makers, engineers and buyers, all of whom will have the opportunity to meet manufacturers and share experiences and ideas with peers from across the space tech supply chain.

Now in its sixth year, the event showcases the latest products and technology from technical designers, sub-systems suppliers and manufacturers that serve the civil, military, and commercial space sectors. According to Space Tech Expo’s organisers, more than 250 exhibitors will showcase their products to almost 4,000 attendees – the highest visitor count for the event to date.

Visitors will have access to all three days of the trade show, where companies such as JPL, NASA AFRC and International Rectifier will display their industry solutions. On the exhibit floor visitors will have the opportunity to view a large range of new products, solutions and innovations.

Visitors can also visit the Open Tech Forum, a series of free sessions at which companies including Northrop Grumman, Caltech and Aerojet Rocketdyne (who recently successfully tested a full-scale AM thrust chamber assembly) will deliver talks and presentations on aerospace manufacturing and design, thermal management, electronics, testing innovations and more. Over the course of the forum, experts will tackle a range of subjects including the use of independent test labs for qualification testing; advanced resistive technologies for space; solutions and trends in reliable thermal management for satellites; initiatives for optimising micro and nano propulsion systems; how to utilise the digital thread in the space industry; and an in-depth look at the new US Air Force Commercialisation Readiness Program.

A paid-for conference track will run alongside the main exhibition featuring in-depth technical panels. These panels will feature presenters and speakers from companies including Accion, Airbus Safran Launchers, FAA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, SSL, NASA, AIA, HawkEye 360, LM Ventures, Phase Four and Arkisys.
