›SpaceOps 2010 Conference, Delivering on the Dream
Delivering on the Dream. For any project, for any mission, it is a long road of many phases to get to the culmination – the operations phase. Spaceflight Operations is where the mission team really delivers on the dream. The successes or failures, the achievements and oversights of all of the earlier phases become apparent during operations. The SpaceOps Conference is the chance for your mission or project to share your dreams and deliveries with the community. And this is your chance to bring the ideas, innovations, and experiences, both exhilarating and painful, from other professionals, back to your home turf to benefit your program. We in the SpaceOps community believe that with an enthusiastically communicating operations community, we all become stronger – and mankind’s dream to utilize and explore space becomes a reality.
Space Operations professionals and innovators from around the globe will be bringing their accomplishments, plans and innovations to share with their peers.
We need the best ideas, the brightest teams, the most creative innovations and the most insightful experiences to be presented to the broadest community of space operations professionals.
You can advance your mission, your organization and your own expertise only if you stay connected with the Space Operations community.

The 2010 Conference will bring together space operators from around the world to discuss the current status of and future direction of space operations. For 2010, we are introducing two new tracks to our already successful track disciplines, in keeping with the theme Delivering on the Dream.
- Mission Design and Mission Management
- Mission Execution: Plan, Train, and Fly
- Data and Communications Systems and Facilities Supporting Operations
- Cross Support, Interoperability, Standards
- Launch Operations NEW FOR 2010!
- Commercial Space Operations NEW FOR 2010!
New Focus Areas for SpaceOps
Launch Operations – Since the Marshall Space Flight Center is the propulsion design center for NASA, he operations teams are focusing on the impact of launch system design on operations. We are bringing our experiences and plans to the forum, and we encourage experienced launch operations professionals from around the globe to share their expertise as well.
Commercial Space Operations – The Space Operations industry has traditionally been dominated by government agencies, but we now see the expanding base of commercial companies involved in spaceflight, some with operational unmanned spacecraft, some with aspirations of routine manned spaceflight operations. We encourage these companies to share with us how they operate with the new commercial environment, and how they plan to deliver on their dreams.
