               AT LOCKHEED MARTIN,
               The Orion spacecraft will carry astronauts on bold missions to the moon,
               Mars and beyond — missions that will excite the imagination and advance
               the frontiers of science. Because at Lockheed Martin, we’re designing ships
               to go as far as the spirit of exploration takes us.

    Jim Armor            Jürgen Drescher      WELCOME
Northrop Grumman        German Aerospace      Welcome to the AIAA Space and Astronautics Forum (AIAA SPACE Forum)!
   Corporation            Center (DLR)
                                              When the decision was made to relocate this event from California, Orlando,
                                              with the nearby Space Coast, was the obvious choice. Central Florida is home
                                              to a wealth of aerospace history and innovation and is the nation’s busiest
                                              gateway to space. The companies, government facilities, and academic institutions
                                              that call this region home represent the cutting-edge organizations shaping the
                                              future of space exploration and commercialization. We’re excited to be here
                                              and hope you are too!
                                              This year’s AIAA SPACE Forum will expose you to perspectives and topics
                                              you won’t find anywhere else. Our many sessions will bring together leaders in
  Stephen Frick         Stephen G. Jurczyk    our community, both past and present, to discuss challenges associated with
 Lockheed Martin        NASA Headquarters
                                              aerospace system development and space commercialization. We encourage
                                              you to review this program to find the sessions that spark your interest the
                                              most, but here are just a few of the highlights.
                                              On Monday NASA Administrator James Bridenstine will share his ideas on
                                              space exploration and how the agency is shaping the future. The conversation
                                              continues when Administrator Bridenstine is joined on stage by many of his
                                              predecessors—it’s the first time we can find that this many former and current
                                              NASA administrators have shared a stage! It’s sure to be an insightful look at an
                                              agency that has transformed and expanded the world we live in.

                                              Wednesday. The Forum 360 sessions will be opportunities for engaging
                                              dialogue on critical space and astronautics programs as well as insights into
                                              what is next for the industry.
                                              As always, the presentations during the technical sessions form the foundation
                                              of everything we do at AIAA. The fundamental research and development
                                              results discussed in these sessions will drive discovery, collaboration, and

 (Forum 360 Chair)         Laboratory         Thank you for making the choice to be here in Orlando this week. We hope you
                                              find the energy and activity around the development of space and astronautics
                                              invigorating and inspiring. As we look toward a bright future, we celebrate the
                                              past, as we all stand on the shoulders of giants. Ad astra.

CASE, or Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange, is not a normal AIAA
conference. As the name implies it is an exchange of ideas on some of the
most pertinent issues facing aerospace chief engineers, program managers,
and system engineering professionals in the aerospace industry today, with
a focus on systems complexity. Through interactive panel discussions and
workshops, CASE provides a forum for practically addressing these cross-
discipline complex aerospace systems topics.

 The 22nd AIAA International Space Planes and Hypersonic Systems and Technologies Conference will provide a forum for
 discussion and exchange of information about leading-edge research and development activities associated with space
 planes and hypersonic atmospheric flight vehicles and the technologies underpinning these capabilities, including national
 programs from North America, South America, Australia, Europe, and Asia. Topics include planned and ongoing space plane
 and hypersonic vehicle programs, advanced launch vehicle and hypersonic atmospheric flight vehicle concepts, commercial
 space tourism concepts, flight testing techniques, results, and lessons learned, reentry vehicle systems and technologies,
 aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics of space planes and hypersonic vehicles, MHD and plasma aerodynamic flow control
 techniques, rocket, ramjet, scramjet, and other advanced propulsion systems, including component technologies (e.g., inlets,
 combustion systems, fuel injection concepts, ignition and flameholding concepts, nozzles), high-temperature materials, hot
 structures and thermal protection systems, health monitoring and management technologies, and more.
