SmallSat Symposium Silicon Valley 2018 Videos are Now Available... a Convergence of Experts, Technology and Information

From February 5 through February 8, a major event occurred in Silicon Valley in California — the SmallSat Symposium.

The information the attendees received was highly useful and important — however, attempting to partake of all of the subject-matter expertise that was presented in its entirety was a challenge.

This year, space history occurred for all to see — on Tuesday, February 5, the symposium welcomed Dr. Hans Koenigsmann, the Vice President of Build and Flight Reliability at SpaceX. His presentation was delivered just ahead of the record breaking launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, which was viewed on all of the Computer History Museum's large video screens to the cheers and kudos from the attendees.

The sessions were refreshingly candid — for those unable to attend, or those who would appreciate reviewing the rich information afforded at the symposium, there is good news. Now available are in situ videos that captured the presented sessions. For those who attended the SmallSat Symposium, as many as three recorded sessions may be requested for viewing at no charge —  keynotes videos are also available at no cost.

There are a total of 20 videos in the complete set, running for a total of 17 hours and 13 minutes. Each video is available for rent by any interested party — attendees or not — from a special Vimeo infosite established for the distribution of the 2018 SmallSat Symposium video recordings.
