IAA – ITALY – ISRAEL WORKSHOP ON NANOSATELLITE TECHNOLOGIES



IAA – ITALY – ISRAEL WORKSHOP ON NANOSATELLITE TECHNOLOGIES

Under the patronage of
Italian Space Agency ASI, Israel Space Agency ISA and International Academy of Astronautics IAA

ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana), Via del Politecnico, Rome, Italy
April 09-10, 20108





Call for Participation

Nanosatellites and related technologies have been gaining increasing interest in the space sector, due to the numerous possibilities they convey to space missions. Building on the active collaboration between Italy and Israel in the space field, a joint 2-day workshop will be held in Rome, which will accentuate the strengths and experience of each country in nanosatellite research and development. The workshop will be held under the sponsorship of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and Israeli Space Agency (ISA).

During the first day of the workshop, participants from each side will present research activities relevant to nanosatellite technologies. Such activities include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

1.    New attitude control devices
2.    Astrodynamics and orbit control
3.    New mission concepts
4.    Miniaturized electric propulsion systems
5.    Cluster flight and formation flying
6.    Subsystem design
7.    Inter-satellite communication
8.    Imaging, optics and remote sensing
9.    Novel materials, additive layer manufacturing and 3D printing
10.    On board computers, sensors, and timing devices
11.    New applications and services produced by nano satellites
12.    Augmentation of large satellite systems performances due to nano satellites

The second day will be devoted to round-table discussions, with the purpose of encouraging Israeli and Italian research institutions to develop academic relationship and to carry out joint research projects.

Prospective participants are requested to send the confirmation of their attendance and the participation to the social dinner by March 26 by sending an e-mail to:

Motivations and contents of the workshop


The workshop aims at strengthening the cooperation between Italy and Israel in the space sector by approaching the opportunities offered by small and Nano satellite systems. Space systems based on small and Nano platforms, especially if considered in the frame of constellations and formations, are considered very promising form the perspective of enhanced performance of space systems both for scientific missions and for applications. Issues as standardization, new concept of operations, advanced and cooperative flight control systems, miniaturization, additive manufacturing, launching opportunities and ground segment terminals are topics that are under investigation in both countries and can offer innovative solutions to the entire space sector. 
In the workshop the policies by both National space agencies will be illustrated and the major programs in development in the Universities and Research centers will be presented, along with major developments and programs developed by Italian and Israeli companies. One of the aims of the workshop is to pave the line towards a cooperative program in small/Nano satellites.
