2017 GSAW Summary

The Ground System Architectures Workshop (GSAW), in its 21st year, provides a forum for the world's spacecraft ground system experts to collaborate with other ground system users, developers, and researchers through tutorials, presentations, working groups, panel discussions, and a poster session.  

This year's theme is "Looking Beyond the Horizon." Ground system design is influenced by many factors, which are changing at an increasing pace. Cost, schedule, and performance pressures continue to grow. Technology is providing more options for system design, but is also enabling new mission types and communications options. many business models are being adapted to the CubeSat/smallsat and hosted payload marketplace. Considerations include reuse, standards, common services, fleet operations, enterprise support, and more. How do you plan for the future when the rate of change is faster than traditional acquisition cycles?

The general workshop will be held at the Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel and will include international attendees. A classified session will be hosted on Thursday, March 16, at The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, with presentations up to the TS//SI/TK//NOFORN classification level accepted. All classified session attendees will be required to have a TS/SCI clearance. Note: Presenters are responsible for ensuring that all abstracts, proposals, and presentation submissions are cleared for public release by their respective organization.
