On-Orbit Servicing Horizons.

The servicing of satellites on-orbit has been a hot topic in recent years. From satellite inspection and supporting a spacecraft launched into the wrong orbit to active servicing tasks such as refueling or hardware replacement, spacecraft that can support on-orbit servicing tasks could give new life to otherwise inoperable spacecraft.

This panel will discuss the current state of on-orbit servicing and the near-term plans for such systems across the civil, defense, and commercial space sectors.

Moderator: Gregory P. Scott, Aerospace Engineer and Space Roboticist, Naval Research Laboratory

Panelists:

- Dan King, Director, Business Development, MDA Robotics & Automation
- David Markham, Vice President, Advanced Programs, Lockheed Martin Space Systems
- Benjamin Reed, Deputy Project Manager, Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
