›SGAC Space Exploration Workshop 2019
Are you interested to know more about the communications and navigation challenges of travelling to other planets?
Join us for the 2019 Space Exploration Workshop in Washington, D.C., on Sunday 20 October, sponsored by NASA SCaN, to be held at the Udvar-Hazy Centre of the National Air and Space Museum, to learn about:
“To the Moon and Beyond: Enabling NASA’s Human Exploration of the Solar System”
NASA is accelerating its ambitious human exploration plans to send humans back to the Moon and on to Mars. The NASA Artemis mission will land humans on the Moon by 2024 and planned Mars missions, such as the Mars 2020 rover, are paving the way for human exploration of the Red Planet in the 2030s. How do these missions send increasing amounts of data back to Earth, and what technological developments in communication and navigation are required to ensure the success of human exploration to the Moon and into deep space?
The NASA Space Communications and Navigation program office manages and directs the ground-based facilities and services provided by the Deep Space Network (DSN), Near Earth Network (NEN) and Space Network (SN). Join us to learn about how SCaN stays ahead of NASA’s science and human exploration goals to ensure the successful operation of missions.
The 2019 SE Workshop will consist of a morning of talks by subject matter experts, followed by a practical group exercise in the afternoon. Delegates will be presented with scenarios related to the challenges of deep space communications and navigation, and tasked to solve them using the information and tools provided.Tweets by spaceagenda
