MARCH 9, 2011

10:30 a.m. Workshop Introduction Don Kessler, Chair
     
10:35 a.m. Session 1: NASA Meteoroid and Orbital Debris Programs
  The leads for NASA’s Meteoroid and Orbital Debris (MMOD) programs will speak about program goals, issues, gaps, and opportunities.
     
  Panelists:

John Lyver, Office of Safety and Mission Assurance, NASA Headquarters, Manager of NASA’s Meteoroid and Orbital Debris Program Offices

   

Gene Stansbery, NASA Orbital Debris Program Office, Johnson Space Center

   

William Cooke, Meteoroid Environment Office, Marshall Space Flight Center

   

Eric Christiansen, Hypervelocity Impact Technology Group, Johnson Space Center/Human Exploration Science Office

   

Lauri Newman, NASA Robotic Conjunction Assessment Risk Analysis, Goddard Space Flight Center

12:00 p.m. Lunch
     
12:45 p.m. Session 2: NASA Mission Operators
  Project managers and system engineers from various NASA robotic missions will discuss MMOD issues from an operations standpoint. What MMOD-related problems do missions encounter throughout the lifetime of a spacecraft? How do NASA’s MMOD programs meet mission planners’ and operators’ needs? What information are mission managers using to make decisions related to the operations of a spacecraft, and how do mission managers make MMOD-related decisions?
     
  Panelists:

Michael Rhee, Systems Engineer, Global Precipitation Measurement Mission, Goddard Space Flight Center

   

Mark Woodard, Senior Flight Dynamics Engineer, ARTEMIS Mission, Goddard Space Flight Center

   

Patrick Crouse, Operations Project Manager, Hubble Space Telescope, Goddard Space Flight Center

   

Glenn Shirtliffe, Project Manager, Jason-1 and OSTM/Jason-2 Missions, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
