The Second International Workshop on On-Orbit Satellite Servicing brought together principal and potential stakeholders of the growing satellite servicing community to discuss servicing plans, share future missions that could enable science exploration and new fleet strategies, and probe into the issues that could either stimulate or strangle the emerging commercial industry. Satellite bus providers, owners and operators, policy makers, insurance providers, legal advisors, finance providers, and other stakeholders had ample opportunity to cross-discuss ideas, concerns, and solutions during multiple presentations and panel discussions.
First International Workshop on On-Orbit Satellite Servicing
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.
