SPRSA Symposium 2021: Increasing Perils of LEO Operations

Date & Time
September 21, 2021 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm Eastern Time

The Aerospace Corporation will host the Session Two Program, “Increasing Perils of LEO Operations,” for the 23rd Annual SPRSA Small Payload Ride Share Symposium.

Aerospace’s Dr. Mark Skinner hosts the session, which will include a number of Aerospace subject matter experts presenting on space safety-related topics, including:

  • Launch Collision Avoidance and Collision on Launch Assessments (COLAs)
  • Atmospheric Impacts from Reentry 
  • Tracking with GPS Fixes 
  • Legal and Regulatory Issues

The Small Payload Ride Share Association’s (SPRSA) purpose is to provide a forum for the small space community to achieve the goal of “Routine, Affordable Access to Space for Small Payloads.” The small space community consists of government, industry, and academic organizations involved in building and operating small satellites, providing dedicated or ride share launch services and their associated spaceports, and supplying technologies, components, and technical services. As the “new space” systems have demonstrated the value of small payloads, the community has experienced a dramatic increase in interest, investments, and activity. SPRSA has transformed, along with the rest of the community, to address the broader spectrum of capabilities beyond ride share opportunities necessary for the growth of a healthy small satellite market.

Registration for this event is free. For more details or to register, please visit the SPRSA website.
