KePASSA 2019

For its fourth edition KePASSA goes back to Logroño where the series of workshops was kicked-off in 2014.

The workshop aims to gather worldwide experts in the field of orbit propagation who deliver talks of top-notch scientific content in an informal, friendly and relaxed environment.

Orbit propagation, the main topic of the workshop, is one of the most challenging and complex aspect of astronautics and will play a key role in ensuring the sustainable use of space. The continuous development and upgrade of orbit propagation techniques is instrumental for tackling most of the SSA challenges, e.g. those posed by the imminent realisation of mega-constellations, the creation of sensors capable of tracking hundred of thousands of objects, and the implementation of a space traffic management and control system.
