In-Space Inspection Workshop 2017

Gilruth Center, Johnson Space Center
Houston, TX
31 January - 2 February 2017
ASNT is sponsoring the 3rd In-Space Inspection Workshop which NASA Engineering and Safety Center kicked off in 2012 and 2014. The format promotes users and stakeholders to present their concerns and needs as well as capability and technology leaders to share and demonstrate their latest products. On the last afternoon scheduled one-on-one sessions are facilitated so that short, private conversations can kick-off long-term relationships if there is a fit.  

We’ll explore some of spaceflight’s most difficult challenges that only event and damage detection, followed by damage characterization can mitigate. We’ll explore the latest advanced sensors, platforms and nondestructive evaluation methods. Attendees will have a fantastic opportunity to network with the best – because that’s who will be there.

As an ASNT Conference, attendees can earn ASNT Level III recertification points.
