AIAA Space Transportation Technical Committee Announces

The 2013 Annual Speakers Day

8:00 am Wednesday February 27 2013
The Boeing Company Washington Offices
1200 Wilson Boulevard #1 Arlington, VA 22209


For many years, the AIAA Space Transportation Technical Committee (STTC) hosted an annual Speakers Day in the Washington DC area. Speakers Day featured key US Government personnel from the Department of Defense, NASA, Congress, and the Administration providing their unique insight into the current status of important defense and space programs. The day-long meeting was informal and off-the-record to encourage candid conversations.

In 2012 the STTC revived the tradition! Last year’s event at Lockheed-Martin’s unique Global Vision Center at the company facilities in Crystal City was a tremendous success. This year is Boeing is our host at their East Coast headquarters offices in convenient Rosslyn, Virginia.

The STTC has confirmed a wide variety of speakers from DOD, NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Congress. The theme will be “Aerospace & Defense Perspectives from Washington”. Below is the confirmed final agenda:
