NASA Highlights Innovation, Technology at Virtual SciTech Forum

NASA’s Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM) validated a new type of propellant for future spacecraft. A panel of government and industry propulsion experts will discuss GPIM’s successes and the future of green propellants at the 2021 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics SciTech Forum, held as a virtual event January 11-15 and 19-21.

Experts from across NASA will participate in the 2021 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) SciTech Forum beginning Monday, Jan. 11. NASA and Artemis Team astronaut Stephanie Wilson, agency leaders, and researchers will participate in various panels and technical sessions during the eight-day event. Topics range from diversity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to innovations in space technology, aeronautics, and more.

 

Among the various panels, spacecraft propellant experts from government and industry will present on the future of “green” propellants Monday, Jan. 11, at 1 p.m. EST. The panel will recap the successful in-space demonstration of a low-toxic monopropellant and the compatible propulsion technologies and discuss the path for infusing the system into future missions.
