Session 1.1: Needs and requirements of end users.

The session will cover the view of the end users: operators, final customers, etc., including the perspective of insurance companies involved in space insurance services.

Session 1.2: Strategies towards the use of COTS.

The session will cover the current and future strategies from main space agencies, not only the classical (e.g NASA, ESA, JAXA) but also from other geographical regions like South-America, Asia.

 The intention is to address both classical space projects as well as new space concepts.

Session 1.3.a-b: Space Mission Providers & Integrators or Equipment Suppliers.

 The session will cover the experience of space equipment manufacturers and systems integrators who are already using COTS and the pressures from customers and the market to increment its use in the future. Examples of use cases, success – failure stories,…, etc., will be provided including some trend in the new EEE policy adoption for new missions and constellations.

Session 2.1: Component manufacturers.

The session covers the views and opinions of the electronic component manufacturers, assessing the wider space demands in terms of performances, cost,…, etc. and new products and solution to cover the identified needs

Session 2.2.a-b: Technology Issues.

Experts in specific disciplines will provide talks on the technology issues affecting the wider use of COTS parts in space applications, including the latest state of the art views on radiation issues, outgassing, pure tin, high-temperature solders, processes…, etc..

Session 2.3: Risk Management.

The use of COTS, with its potential risk increase, has implications at other levels, from the design process, the implementation of mitigation techniques, the need to have proper methodologies to perform reliability predictions,…, etc. The session will cover all aspects of risk management directly linked to increased use of COTS and new product assurance approaches, which are appearing to address the issues.
