We are beyond excited to convene with the global space community in Dubai for the 72nd International Astronautical Congress! You will have plenty of opportunities to see and hear from us. On Tuesday, our Founder & CEO, Nobu Okada, will join the founders and CEOs of ClearSpace and D-Orbit for a panel discussion during the IAF Global Networking Forum, moderated by Dr. Bhavya Lal, Senior Advisor for Budget and Finance to the NASA Administrator, on on-orbit servicing and the key technologies that will expedite the path to space sustainability.


We will also have seven presentations during the Technical Program, covering everything from future proofing LEO missions with docking plates to regulatory approaches for a sustainable global on-orbit servicing market.
