AMP SoCal Fall Innovation Forum:  CubeSats and Other Small Satelites
November 18th in Santa Monica
Join us for the upcoming AMP SoCal Innovation Forum: CubeSats and Other Small Satellites on Friday, November 18, from 9 am – noon at ROC Santa Monica. This forum will highlight the rapidly growing aerospace sector of small satellites (satellites under 1,100 lbs) which is revolutionizing the industry by making spaceflight and extra-atmospheric observations more affordable and accessible to researchers, universities and businesses. The small satellite field includes CubeSats, an amazing extra-terrestrial tool packed into roughly 10 cubic centimeters. The CubeSat standard was created by Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Stanford University's Space Systems Development Lab in 1999 to facilitate access to space for university students. Representatives from Cal Poly and other top satellite developers will be presenting exciting information on this new wave of space exploration during the next AMP SoCal Innovation Forum. 

Registration Will Open Soon - Stay tuned for more Info

Fac-a-thon Links Faculty’s Top Minds to Manufacturing’s Top Research Needs - October 2016

The AMP SoCal led Fac-a-thon unites faculty researchers from colleges and universities across the region, pooling their collective brain-power to solve some of the aerospace and defense (A&D) manufacturing industry’s most pressing research issues, while also simultaneously advancing manufacturing development and technology across the nation.

Building off of the “hackathon” model, where programmers and developers across technology fields hold a focused collaborative session for the successful creation of a product, AMP SoCal has developed a similarly structured Fac-a-thon.
