Panel To Be Hosted By The HPA @ The Small Payload Rideshare Symposium

The Hosted Payload Alliance (HPA) will hold a panel discussion at 4:00 p.m. on June 7th at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, as part of the "Access to Space" session of the Small Payload Ride Share Symposium.

This panel, "Hosted Payloads: The Other Access to Space," will include an overview of the American Space Renaissance Act (ASRA), a strategic omnibus bill structured to be a comprehensive source of legislative provisions that can be selectively adopted in National Defense Authorization Acts. Last week, 10 provisions of the ASRA were enacted as part of the FY17 NDAA.

The discussion will delve into the role that commercially leveraged solutions could serve as part of a more integrated space enterprise and how these commercially leveraged solutions could build a more resilient architecture. The discussion will also address obstacles that prevent more effective leveraging of commercial space capabilities. There will be a Q & A at the end of the panel.

Panelists will include:

  • David Anhalt, VP of Iridium PRIME, Iridium Satellite (moderator)
  • Al Tadros, VP of Civil and DoD Business, SSL and Chair of the Hosted Payload Alliance
  • Bill Crandall, Chief of Advanced Projects, NovaWurks
  • Wells Parson, COO of York Space Systems
  • Gordon Roesler, Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous Satellites Program Manager, DARPA
  • Cary Pao, Aerospace Corp
  • Hnung Tran, Director of Hosted Payload Office, USAF
