The Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference is the premier technical conference in the nation devoted to space surveillance. The cross section of military, contractor, and academic participation in the field of space situational awareness is unmatched by any other conference in the world, as evidenced by the continued growth in attendance, and the corresponding increase in technical excellence and collaboration.

The AMOS Conference is a program of the Maui Economic Development Board, Inc. (MEDB), a nonprofit corporation established in 1982 to focus on diversifying Maui’s economy. MEDB’s mission involves taking innovative actions that strengthen existing industry as well as diversifying through new opportunities. Learn more [1].
