On the 17th and 18th of March 2015, the European Space Agency will hold a two day event on technologies for Space Debris Mitigation (SDM) and presenting CleanSat programme which promotes the evolution of LEO platforms for compliance with the SDM requirements. The event, coordinated by the ESA Clean Space office is planned as follows: - A Technical day on ‘deorbiting strategies’ (17/03/2015) - A CleanSat Workshop (18/03/2015) The Technical Day is focused on presenting and summarising European knowledge and technology developments in the areas of drag augmentation devices and solid rocket motors de-orbiting systems. The objective of the technical day is to shape recommendations for future research in this area through highly interactive sessions which are designed to produce actionable results. The CleanSat Workshop aims at involving the entire chain of European space sector in the preparation of the CleanSat programme. Space Debris Mitigation requirements are being enforced worldwide with a high impact on the design of LEO spacecraft. Developing products compliant with SDM will increase the competitiveness of the European industry on a global scale. CleanSat will be an efficient framework for the fast implementation of innovative technologies in upcoming LEO missions, promoting the development of common building blocks to stimulate the creation of shared supply chains, lowering development and recurrent costs. This workshop is an essential step to involve the whole European space sector in shaping the way forward for the evolution of the European LEO platforms. We offer the following opportunities associated with the event: - For the technical day - 17th of March 2015 (9:00 - 17:00): › Display exhibition material › Presentations are already selected. The audience is invited to attend the presentations and actively participating during the open discussions that will be held throughout the morning and afternoon sessions - For the CleanSat workshop - 18th of March 2015 (9:00 - 17:30): › Display exhibition material › Presentation of your technology for the sessions on technologies for space debris mitigation - 18th of March 2015 (13:00 - 15:00) › Open round table to discuss Clean Sat (15:00 – 17:00) If you would like to contribute to this event or would like further information, please contact: Jessica Delaval - jessica.delaval@esa.int Please note that due to a restricted number of seats we might have to select participants. Priority will be given to people involved in the development of technologies for space debris mitigation.
