SpaceOps 2014: Explore Innovation


The capability of our space missions and the supporting ground infrastructure is growing, fueled by exciting new technologies, but with that growth comes increased complexity, and daunting reliability and security challenges. And, like most complex enterprises, space operations are being asked to do more with less. In order to deliver cost-effective space operations services we must explore innovative ways to build and operate our systems, and integrate operations personnel into the space operations equation. Innovation is the engine that drives progress in today’s high-tech global economy.

SpaceOps 2014 provides the opportunity for you to share experiences, challenges, and innovative solutions with colleagues from around the globe. Take home new ideas and make connections. Be it civil or military applications, educational, scientific, or commercial objectives, space segments or ground segments, the space operations community greatly values, and benefits from, collaboration and the sharing of ideas. To this end, we enthusiastically invite you to Explore Innovation!

Hosted by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), SpaceOps 2014 will bring together the space operations community to address state-of-the-art operations principles, methods, and tools. Held biennially since 1990, the conference attracts technologists, scientists, and managers from space agencies, industry, and academia, and fosters managerial and technical interchange on all aspects of space mission operations, including robotic and human spaceflight, earth orbit and deep space missions, lunar and planetary missions, and orbital and surface operations. 

Pasadena250webJPL and AIAA are combining our expertise to organize and host SpaceOps 2014. We all look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Pasadena for a thought-provoking and innovative exchange of ideas and concepts.
