2014 NSMMS & CRASTE Conferences

The National Space and Missile Materials Symposium (NSMMS) and the Commercial and Government Responsive Access to Space Technology Exchange (CRASTE) bring together technologists, users, and decision makers from across the nation to discuss key technology issues related to space, missile, and hypersonic systems and a variety of ground-breaking commercial space topics necessary for our Country’s defense and research and development pursuits.  The event will take place at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL on the 23rd -26th of June 2014 and will feature over 150 technical presentations and posters.

This year’s Symposia features speakers such as, Dr. Steven Walker, Deputy Director, DARPA; Dr. Mike Gazarik, Associate Administrator NASA STMD; Major General Terrence Feehan, Vice Commander, Space & Missile Systems Center; Mr. Greg Hulcher, Strategic Warfare Director, OSD-ATL; Dr. Thomas Christian, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary (Science, Technology & Engineering), SAF/AQR; Dr. Dale Thomas, Associate Director, NASA MFSC; and Mr. James Lackey, Acting Director, AMRDEC.

On Monday of the event, a variety of tutorials and workshops covering ground-breaking research and technology are available, as well as a small business forum that facilitates the interaction of small businesses and universities with larger “prime" contractors based on similar interests relevant to NASA and the Department of Defense. Technical sessions beginning on Tuesday afternoon include topics such as heavy lift; hypersonics; in-space transportation & sub-orbital concepts & capabilities; planetary orbit and exploration technologies; range & ground operations; reducing cost, increasing safety; reusability; space access & propulsion; space materials experimentation, modeling, & simulation; systems integration; and thermal management/protection.

Accompanying this event, is a job board featuring space related jobs all over the U.S.  The site allows you to search by job title, company, location and job type (full time, permanent, etc.).  There is no cost to search the site or apply for jobs.  Employers can post jobs for a nominal fee.

Industry sponsors for the event include ATK; Boeing; Dynetics; i-3; MR&D; National Technology Transfer Center; Northrop Grumman; Plasma Processes; Prototype Today; Scot Forge; Southern Research Institute; Ultramet.
