Registration is open for the Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference to be held September 27-30, 2022 at the Wailea Beach Resort. The premier technical conference in the nation devoted to Space Situational/Domain Awareness (SSA/SDA) is proceeding as a hybrid event with both in-person and livestream components.
This year the AMOS Conference received over 260 abstracts from 20 countries. Papers have been selected to be presented in technical sessions that cover Astrodynamics; Atmospherics/Space Weather; Cislunar SSA; Conjunction/RPO; Machine Learning for SSA Applications; Non-Resolved Object Characterization; Optical Systems & Instrumentation; Space-Based Assets; Space Debris; and Space Situational/Domain Awareness.
AMOS provides the opportunity to stay on the cutting edge of industry trends while networking and cross-sharing knowledge within the SSA community. The cross section of private sector, government, and academic participation helps foster important dialogue and international collaboration. The continued growth in attendance and participating countries at AMOS reflects a growing interest in space sustainability and space commerce initiatives as new actors—national governments, private sector companies, non-governmental entities, and universities—become involved in these activities.
The program will feature Keynote speakers, policy forums, technical sessions (oral and poster), exhibits, short courses and networking receptions. Both in-person and livestream attendees will have access to a virtual platform to facilitate networking and collaboration before, during and after the conference.
This year marks the return of the in-person Exhibit and Poster Venue. after Exhibitors will be able to display their products, services and new technologies. Attendees will have access to the largest pool of technical posters yet, with all posters in digital format with accompanying briefings. Select posters have been invited for in-person presentation during the evening Poster Sessions.
The AMOS Conference will be preceded by an EMER-GEN® program for young professionals enthusiastic about careers in space. The program features mentoring sessions with renowned space specialists, along with professional development sessions designed to enhance the young professionals’ effectiveness in a global environment. A number of webinars pre-event will help the cohort prepare for the on-site program. Registration for EMER-GEN will open in June.
