PURPOSE:
1. Assess NDE technologies and needs for on-orbit inspections of current & future spacecraft.
2. Discover and build on needs, R&D & NDE products in other industries and agencies.
3. Stimulate partnerships in and outside NASA to move technologies forward cooperatively.
4. Facilitate group discussion on challenges and opportunities for technology focus areas.

MOTIVATION:
Unplanned Events needing inspection: Apollo 13 Explosion; Shuttle Columbia Accident.
Risks for DOD, Commercial and NASA ISS Life Extension and Exploration missions.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
1. Inspection and NDE Communities
2. Gov and Commercial Space Organizations with In-Space Inspection challenges
3. Universities looking for relevant research and skills development areas
4. Technology Developers/Providers of the types of systems/applications below:

Focus Areas: Many inspection technologies are needed, however this workshop focuses on these 3:

Miniaturized 3D Penetrating Imagers - looking through conductive material is biggest challenge
Controllable Snake-arm Inspection systems - a smart endoscope that controllable base-to-end
Miniature Free-flying Micro-satellite Inspectors - when you really need the viewpoint

PRESENTERS:
See Agenda - presentations will be cleared for Public Distribution.

ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS:
End Users will have tables with sign-up sheets for one-on-one discussions.
