FAA Center of excellence for commercial space transportation (Known as COE CST) 2010. There are three main goals: research, training, and outreach in the areas of manned space flight, industry innovation, and hosting related topics. The law specifies that all FAA COEs have a lifespan of 10 years, but due to many unforeseen circumstances, including COVIDs, the COECST will end after 12 years.
The Florida Institute of Technology is one of the nine original COE CST “core” universities, which will host the final Annual Technical Conference – 11.th Overall – 9:30 am to 5 pm at Florida Institute of Technology Advanced Manufacturing and Innovative Design CenterPalm Bay 2495 Palm Bay Road NE.
Students, faculty, industry representatives, and the general public are invited to attend the meeting directly or via Zoom. Registration required.. Upon registration, guests will receive a zoom link.
Breaking away from the format of past technical conferences, this is a comprehensive look at COECST. Special focus on past and future opportunitiesFeatures panel discussions by principal investigators and students, past and present. They are grouped according to four research areas: aerospace access and operation. Aerospacecraft; Manned Space Flight and Operations; Industry Innovation – COE CST’s long-established and active university principal investigators discuss their views on the following topics:
- The main achievements of research done in their field of study by themselves and their colleagues.
- The impact of research conducted in this field on the industry.
- Future research activities that may give a positive outlook for future commercial space research.
- Impact on student workforce development and readiness, including student success stories
- Impact of research on space operational safety
Video voices and messages from COE CST graduates and sponsors are scattered throughout the day.
