EVA Technology Workshop - October 17-19, 2017, hosted by NASA Johnson Space Center

On Day 1, presentations will provide an overview of NASA's deep space exploration plans and their needs for next generation EVA technologies.

On Day 2, in parallel technical track sessions on key technology areas, attendees will participate in interactive sessions to explore each of the technology areas.

On Day 3, the Day 2 technical session discussions will be summarized, with NASA presentations on the opportunities for collaboration with NASA on new EVA technology developments and projects.  During the afternoon, attendees will be able to pre-schedule one-on-one meetings with NASA to explore potential collaborations and partnerships related to EVA technology.

​Any organization with an interest in EVA or EVA-related technologies is encouraged to participate in this event and learn about NASA's next generation EVA needs and opportunities to work with NASA.

Registration for this event is through the TCC's EVA Technology Workshop registration page.  Event tickets are $100.  TCC Members and members of the JSC Community (with an active NASA e-mail account) are eligible for $50 member tickets.  NASA civil servants are eligible for NASA pre-paid tickets.

This event will likely sell out, so please register early.
