KEYNOTE: The Boeing 737 MAX: Lessons Learned for Software Development
From airplanes and automobiles to the latest electronic devices and wearable technology, software is an increasingly important part of most products today, delivering gains in flexibility, speed-to-market, cost advantages, and features that would not be achievable in hardware alone. In fact, at the core of it many modern systems are really just networks of computers and software. But along with the exponential growth in software code has come added complexity and risk that can be difficult to manage in even some of the seemingly simplest of systems. Using the example of what went wrong with the Boeing 737 MAX, this keynote examines the engineering, cultural, and systems design/software development approaches that can lead to negative outcomes and what today’s organizations can do to build safer systems.

Women in Sensors & Electronics: Challenges & Opportunities
Despite advances in STEM programs and targeted initiatives, not enough women today are choosing—or sticking with—a technical career. Women at all levels make up a distinct minority of the technical professionals working with sensors and electronics. In short, we have much more to do to truly achieve diversity in the workplace and to retain and promote women in STEM-related positions.
  • How can we inspire and expand access for young women to learn and actively explore STEM-related education and career paths?
  • Once women have entered the tech workforce, what are the best approaches to mentoring advocating, and serving as role models to help them thrive in their careers?
  • Many companies advocate strongly for diversity in the workplace, what are some examples of corporate initiatives that are working?

KEYNOTE: From Low Earth Orbit to the Moon, Mars, and Beyond: Capabilities Needed for NASA’s Human Exploration Campaign
NASA and the international space exploration community are on a mission to extend the human presence from Earth to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. For nearly 20 years, humans have resided onboard the International Space Station in low-Earth orbit, learning to live and work in space. NASA’s plans continue the journey in space beyond the space station, with the return of humans to the Moon, long-term exploration and science, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations. Concurrently, NASA is working with partners from many industrial sectors to foster a robust economy in low-Earth orbit, where NASA will be one of many customers utilizing microgravity platforms for diverse activities such as scientific research, manufacturing, and tourism.

This keynote presentation discusses NASA’s current exploration plans and the challenges associated with human voyages to the Moon and Mars. It describes key human spaceflight capabilities that must be advanced to enable NASA’s exploration goals, including sensors and avionics that can survive extreme environments, systems that enable crew and vehicle autonomy, and highly reliable environmental monitoring systems that require minimal maintenance. The presentation addresses the importance and application of these capabilities to deep space human spaceflight. It discusses the activities required to advance critical exploration capabilities, the means of demonstrating system performance, and implementation planning, including selection of flight test location based upon the unique environments and characteristics of the International Space Station, exploration-class vehicles, and lunar surface habitats.
