Side Meetings

We're Going Virtual!

Industry-Sponsored Side Meetings

The Small Satellite Conference is pleased to offer organizations the opportunity to hold industry-sponsored side meetings for Conference attendees.

SmallSat will advertise official side meetings on the Conference website and in the virtual Conference. Requests will be considered by committee on a first-come, first-served basis. Request forms must be received by June 15, 2021. An official side meeting must meet the following conditions:

  • Side meeting is held outside of Live Virtual Conference Meeting times, which will be announced later
  • Limit of two official side meetings per company or organization
  • Meetings should have a time limit of 1.5 hrs and will cost $100 per meeting
  • SmallSat can set up the meeting through Zoom for a $25 charge. Otherwise, the requestor may set up the meeting through WebEx, Zoom, Slack, Teams, etc and provide the meeting link prior to the Conference

The Small Satellite Conference is not responsible for any side meeting logistics beyond posting the meeting link and limited advertising. Content is solely the responsibility of the hosting company/organization.

For any Side Meeting questions, please contact michelle.howa@sdl.usu.edu

Side Meeting Schedule

Some meetings may require pre-registration and will be noted in their meeting description on August 1.

Interest in lessons learned capture for the purpose of community learning has always been an importance element in documenting the life and completion of a mission. The sharing of anomalous experiences over the course of all mission phases in a pace that allows the timely dissemination of information can be critical. With mission numbers on the rise, the extensive COTS catalog, and more options to access space than ever before, NASA has initiated activities to facilitate collection and sharing of anomaly data that will be discussed.

True to the theme of this conference, Cognitive Space is all about automating the space industry to maximize its usefulness through machine intelligence. Come join us and learn about Cognitive Space’s new commercial offering developed in concert with commercial operators and derived from our support of Air Force satellite operations. Satellite operations will never be the same.

The SpaceCloud hardware and software platform is here to simplify space missions, providing a flexible all-inclusive solution for in-orbit data processing and management of software on ground.

Mathias Persson

Euroconsult will provide an in-depth analysis of market drivers, supply, and demand and provides information on seven different smallsat applications, six types of orbits, and four mass categories with a major review of telecom mega-constellations.

Since 2019, a project to standardize CubeSat interfaces (unit-to-unit, payload-to-bus) is ongoing. In this Side Meeting, a draft document to be submitted to ISO/TC20/SC14 will be presented to obtain feedback from the CubeSat community.

It’s no secret that satellites are requiring more and more on-board computing power, which inevitably leads to more waste heat. Simple conduction and radiator designs are no longer sufficient. Thermal storage, thermal control, enhanced passive two-phase transport and even pumped solutions are now being considered to meet these stringent thermal requirements. Join ACT’s Bryan Muzyka for an overview of existing thermal management solutions and a roadmap to future options as power densities continue to increase.

In its 10th year, the Annual NASA Town Hall meeting is a forum for scientists and technologists to hear about NASA's current and future plans for small satellite missions and related technologies in the Space Technology (STMD), Science (SMD), and Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorates (HEOMD). This forum is designed to inform participants on upcoming funding opportunities for various types of projects across NASA in addition to sharing a status of current small spacecraft missions.

Rocket Lab's hosted payload program enables the integration of sensors, instrumentation, and other small satellite payloads on the Photon satellite platform, eliminating the need to build and operate an independent satellite system. Join the Rocket Lab team to learn how you can do more, spend less, and get there faster with Photon.
