Space Parts Working Group
April 30-May 1, 2019
The Space Parts Working Group (SPWG) is sponsored by The Aerospace Corporation, in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and the National Reconnaissance Office. Now in its 48th year, SPWG is an unclassified, international forum for disseminating information to the aerospace industry and for resolving problems with high-reliability electronic piece parts for space applications. The meeting will include presentations from government agencies (including SMC, NRO, NASA, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the Air Force Research Laboratory, the European Space Agency, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency), launch vehicle manufacturer's PM&P Practices, prime system contractors and subcontractors, part suppliers, and laboratories. Suppliers will be presenting their latest roadmaps and product introductions, in addition to the current status of technologies and problems. There will also be presentations on today's hot topics, such as non-hermetic packaging technologies, hermeticity testing, lead-free initiatives, and specs and standards. This is one meeting you do not want to miss. You can get all of the information you ever wanted to know about parts, materials, and processes from all sources, all in one place, and all for an extremely reasonable cost.
