SA-SGW and the SGAC
SA-SGW 2015 in conjunction with the 8th CATE follows up the successful pilot regional SGAC workshop, the 1st Asia-Pacific Regional Space Generation Workshop, held in November 2014. SGAC is looking forward to bringing the focus to South America. SA-SGW will be the first SGAC regional event in South America, a region developing advanced space technology, enhancing economic and human resources, and building international space cooperation. SA-SGW will engage tomorrow's space sector leaders in the region; the workshop will provide an ideal platform for delegates to have the opportunity to voice their opinions, exchange ideas on these pertinent issues, and network. Aside from developing compelling and innovative policy recommendations on pressing space issues, the SGAC also fosters a unique environment of students, young professionals, academia, agency and industry. SA-SGW looks to emulate that success and focus in on the key South America region, which will be the largest growing space region in terms of space technology utilisation and development within the next decade. By developing a critical focus, SA-SGW seeks to ensure that serious questions about competition, co-operation and peaceful uses of outer space are discussed by those who will lead industry and agency in this region in the future.
The 8th CATE, sponsored by the Argentina Association of Space Technology will follow the SA-SGW featuring paper presentations on the topics of: Propulsion and Launch Vehicles, Space Materials and Structures, Guidance and Control, Satellites and Payloads, Microgravity, Remote Sensing, Aerodynamics, Education, Communication and Telemetry by the talented industry and academic members of South America's space technology community.
