In-Space Inspection Workshop 2017

Gilruth Center, Johnson Space Center
Houston, TX
31 January - 2 February 2017

ASNT sponsored the 3rd In-Space Inspection Workshop which NASA Engineering and Safety Center kicked off in 2012 and 2014. The format promoted 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 were facilitated so that short, private conversations were kicked-off long-term relationships if there was a fit.

The Workshop explored some of spaceflight’s most difficult challenges that only event and damage detection, followed by damage characterization can mitigate. Some of the latest advanced sensors, platforms and nondestructive evaluation methods were presented and discussed. Attendees were treated to a fantastic opportunity to network with the best – because of the quality of people presenting and attending.
