The yearly DASIA conference was formally held for the first time in 1996 but is in direct continuation of the ‘Ada in Aerospace’ Conference arranged yearly since 1990 and the ‘On-Board Data Management Symposium’ organised several times during the same period. The DASIA conference is organised by EUROSPACE, the association of European space industry.
The focus of the conference is covering hardware and software, space/air or other sectors sharing similar requirements for high reliability and complexity. Cross-domain topics have a high priority at DASIA with other domains including amongst other transport, communications, navigation, energy, remote sensing, robotics and automation.
The range of themes is from strategies, methods and tools to components, systems and applications. It covers technical as well as managerial aspects of specification, development, integration and maintenance.
