We welcomed Dr. Pat Patterson back to the program to discuss the upcoming 2015 SmallSat Conference to be held in Logan, UT from August 8-13. During our one segment 60 minute discussion, Dr. Patterson not only provided us with the history of the SmallSat conference over nearly three decades, but we focused on many of the highlights for this year’s event. You can follow along with us at the conference website, www.smallsat.org. In addition to talking about the keynote speaker, the CubeSat workshop, student completion, ride sharing, exhibitors, and more, we also talked conference logistics for registration and hotels in and near Logan. Dr. Patterson talked about the social events, networking, and the side programs offered this year. Highlights of the social events take place Tuesday evening with the parties by Orbital ATK and then by SpaceX & Space Services. Toward the end of the discussion, Pat reviewed smallsat industry stats over the past four years documenting the growth and changes within the industry, plus future smallsat plans which if they actually happened, the launch capacity for small satellites would have to significantly improve and expand. Still, the growth stats are reflective of the exciting progress in this segment of the space industry. If you are able to attend SmallSat this year, let me know and please give us reports about it on future Space Show programs.

We welcomed back Dr. Pat Patterson to discuss the upcoming SmallSat Conference to be held at Utah State University in Logan, Utah from August 2-7, 2014.  During our one hour one segment discussion with Pat, we went over all aspects of the conference including the networking, social, and cultural aspects associated with the conference and Logan, UT.  Visit the conference website and follow along with us (www.smallsat.org).  The theme for the 2014 SmallSat Conference is “Commerce of Small Satellites.”  In keeping with this theme, Steve Jurvetson of Draper, Fisher Jurvetson will be the key speaker.  Those of you familiar with NewSpace conferences over the years will be familiar with Mr. Jurvetson as he has been a big part of the Business Plan Competition and the conferences.  Read about him & his space activities at http://smallsat.org/technical-program/keynote.  Pat spoke about conference details, registration, and logistical issues throughout our discussion so pay attention if you are attending, especially to the hotel situation and options.  We learned that Orbital is back to throwing one of the parties this year after a recess from their famous party.  Other parties are hosted by ATK and SpaceX.  The exhibit hall has been expanded and will now cover two floors.  Also, an outdoor “lounge” area has been created for more room and networking options.  I asked if the presented papers were peer reviewed.  Dr. Patterson explained their review process so if you are interested in submitting a paper for future years, take note of it.  About a third of the papers submitted are selected for the conference.  Networking is exceptional at SmallSat.  In addition the social activities including the Space Dynamics Lab hosted party Monday night, the other parties including the Moog sponsored program Wednesday night are all excellent networking venues as are the lunches and the food networking breaks throughout the day.  We got questions about the student programs, presentations, exhibits and their scholarships.  We spoke about newcomers to the exhibit hall and SmallSat, plus family activities for spouses, etc. in and around Logan.  There are also side meetings which you can read about & attend so see  http://smallsat.org/conference/side-meetings.  The 11th Cubesat Workshop is also being held again this year on Saturday/Sunday.  See http://smallsat.org/technical-program/workshop.  For conference questions, see http://smallsat.org/contact.
