SPACE INNOVATIONS | SMART BUSINESS
At SpaceCom, you can learn how to fuel business innovations for the manufacturing industry by learning, networking, and innovating with your peers and other industry executives to see how technology derived from space is used for everyday products and services on Earth.
On November 27, 2018, the Smart Advanced Manufacturing Conference—which is co-locating with SpaceCom—will feature a full day of workshops examining major areas of concern and interest. Topics include methods on how to lower costs, insights into ways to improve the quality of products and processes, techniques on how to speed up delivery times, and examples of manufacturing efficiently by optimizing the integrated system of machines instead of optimizing each machine separately. Participants will hear from leading experts in their fields and then have an opportunity to discuss among themselves the implications for their companies and the industry. Read details of the conference on the Smart Conference information page.
In addition, register for the full SpaceCom Conference and take advantage of additional expert-led sessions, meet with knowledgeable suppliers, and engage with others in the NASA Center Theater presentations, the SpaceCom Entrepreneur Summit, and networking events and programs.
Visionary speakers include:
From remote operations to robotics and specialized materials, space technology has influenced the evolution of advanced manufacturing. Innovative technologies and practices learned from the space program are affecting many areas of production, manufacturing and new material creation and testing. These technologies can reduce your manufacturing production cycles, solve maintenance issues and increase supply chain efficiency.
SpaceCom brings together space and advanced manufacturing executives to tackle common problems and define workable solutions for mutual gain. Manufacturers looking to apply innovation to increase operational efficiencies learned what can be gained by testing and creating new materials in low gravity, as well as pushing the limits of high-strength to low-weight material ratios! At the same time, attendees will take advantage of collaboration opportunities for new products and applications with the maritime, energy, agribusiness and medical sectors.
PLUS . . . the National Laboratory, aboard the International Space Station (ISS), is a testing ground for processes and materials that are directly affected by zero gravity and harsh environments that cannot be found on Earth. At SpaceCom you’ll find out how you can get aboard the space station to advance your business — it may be easier than you think.
If your company is involved in high-strength, low-weight materials — 3D printing, robotics or precision manufacturing of any sort — SpaceCom 2018 is for you! At SpaceCom, you’ll connect with professionals from companies in the forefront of these capabilities and learn how many different applications exist that may be used by your company to improve profits, create new product lines, and gain market share.
SpaceCom 2018 will be the place where advanced manufacturing can collaborate and build business!
