The ISECG Global Exploration Roadmap: Missions and Technologies Advancing Towards Mars
16. Embedded Panels » Technical Tracks

This panel seeks a concentrated discussion on the GER, looking for innovative solutions and ideas to advance its strategy for coordinated human and robotic exploration. It will have two sub-panels. The first will focus on design reference missions, both early and long term. Discussing missions which meet the GER’s common goals and objective will highlight the benefits provided by advanced technologies. The second will focus on technology challenges for enabling human Mars missions with a discussion on what agencies are investing in today that can lead to the advanced technologies that will eventually be essential for a sustainable and affordable international space exploration effort. It will discuss how early deployment of many of these technologies will significantly enhance our ability to explore intermediate destinations such as the Moon and asteroids.

The ISECG Global Exploration Roadmap: Destinations and Commercial Markets
16. Embedded Panels » Technical Tracks

This panel seeks a concentrated discussion on the GER, looking for innovative solutions and ideas to advance its strategy for coordinated human and robotic exploration. It will have two sub-panels. The first will discuss destination specific activities. What can be done at each location and what value will it bring in meeting common goals and objectives. The second panel will focus on commercial market opportunities which may be created with the future exploration missions.
