2010 International Workshop on On-Orbit Satellite Servicing

workshop booklet

From March 24-26, 2010, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) hosted an open international workshop to bring potential users and providers of on-orbit servicing capabilities together with the NASA GSFC Satellite Servicing Study Team.

This three-day event drew together fifty-seven individual speakers and over 250 participants from industry, academia, NASA, other agencies, and international organizations.

Workshop Topics

  • Scientific and non-scientific missions that would benefit from servicing
  • Humans in satellite servicing
  • In-space robotic technology
  • Servicing enabling technologies, including Autonomous Rendezvous and Capture
  • Legal and policy issues

During the workshop, the Satellite Servicing Study Team presented the notional mission definition process and the first draft of the Study's notional mission suite for satellite servicing. Participants and RFI responders showcased ideas, technologies and capabilities relevant to satellite servicing and also forecasted existing and planned spacecraft/observatories that would benefit from on-orbit serviceability.
