    B6. SPACE OPERATIONS SYMPOSIUM

    The Space Operations Symposium addresses all aspects of spaceflight operations. The sessions address both manned and un-manned space operations, from low-Earth and geosynchronous orbit, to lunar, planetary, and exploration missions. The symposium covers both flight and ground systems, and included mission planning, training, and real time operations. Particular focus is provided for commercial space operations, advanced systems, new operations concepts, and small satellite operations.

    B6.IP. Interactive Presentations

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Operations addressed in the classic Sessions. The presentation will be displayed on a digital screen in a dedicated location and available for view by all Congress attendees for the entire Congress week. In addition, one afternoon is dedicated exclusively for the attendees to view the Interactive Presentations, and the author will be assigned a specific eight minute slot to personally present the topic and interact with the attendees present. The Interactive Presentation may take advantage of all electronic display capabilities, such as: PowerPoint charts, embedded hot links, pictures, audio and video clips etc. An award will also be presented to the author of the best Interactive Presentation in the B Category at a special ceremony.
