The Space Components Steering Board of the European Space Components Coordination (ESCC) has the pleasure to announce the European Space Components Conference ESCCON 2019 that will take place on 12-14 MARCH 2019 at ESTEC/ESA, Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
The focus of ESCCON is set on all relevant matters to be considered for the definition of policy and strategy directions for space components. The conference is an international forum and is open to all specialists involved in the development, selection, procurement and use of EEE (Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical) components in space systems.
Presentations and discussions will address areas such as standardisation and harmonisation, technology insertion and validation, investments and funding, availability and sustainability on the basis of real life project and industrial experience and expectations for future evolution. ESCCON 2019 will aim as well at addressing EEE components procurement and their validation in the context of modern manufacturing, new supply chains and Industry 4.0, taking into account the perspectives and expectations of component manufacturers, user industry and final customers. Special attention will be paid as well to the requirements on EEE Components Engineering in times of “mass manufacturing” as required for the newest developments of space systems.
