Space Tech Expo highlights AMP SoCal’s Small Satellite Innovation Forum

The recent CubeSat and Other Small Satellite AMP SoCal Innovation Forum facilitated excellent presentations and discussion from the industry’s leading experts in small satellite technology.

The AMP SoCal event caught the interest of Space Tech Expo, a B2B space industry event that brings together thought leaders, decision-makers and buyers to meet the manufacturing supply chain for commercial, civil and military space and aerospace. It published an article highlighting AMP SoCal and its Innovation Forum, as well as some interesting information about the small satellite industry.

The CubeSat standard was developed in 1999 by Dr Jordi Puig-Suari of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Professor Bob Twiggs of Stanford University. This miniature, extra-terrestrial instrument is a roughly 10 centimeter cube and weighs less than three pounds. Often employing off-the-shelf parts and technology, it is a template that provides endless adaptations and is continuously evolving, thanks in large part to research at universities in the Southern California region.

AMP SoCal is exhibiting at Space Tech Expo USA on May 23 – 25, 2017 in Pasadena, CA in booth 2001.
