First ReSpace/MAPLD Conference to be held in Albuquerque

KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. – The ReSpace/Military/Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices Conference occurs Monday through Thursday (Nov 1-4, 2010) at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque.

This year, the MAPLD Conference, traditionally hosted by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., will be combined with ReSpace.

ReSpace is a new annual conference organized by the Configurable Space Microsystems Innovations and Application Center and its affiliates.  COSMIAC, in partnership with the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles Directorate here and the University of New Mexico, interacts with the space microsystems community to enable and propel the meaningful use of reconfigurable electronics and microsystems in high-reliability aerospace systems.

COSMIAC is a congressionally-supported, space electronics center at the University ofNew Mexico.

It is also the charter program of the AFRL’s Phillips Technology Institute located on the installation.   COSMIAC’s role is to promote aerospace innovation through the reliable and responsible use of configurable technology in military and aerospace systems by serving the interests of industry, government and academia.  COSMIAC’s three primary thrusts include research and development, workforce development and technology outreach.

The addition of MAPLD creates a single major event focused upon the revolution of new and commercial electronics in space systems.  Topics will cover an entire spectrum from single electronics devices to spacecraft made possible through the use of new components.

The conference incorporates several key and innovative features that help COSMIAC perform its mission in support of space microsystems. Key portions of the symposium include a general session, courses, technical presentations, open forums, a technical exhibition, and social events.

Partners and sponsors for the event include AFRL, PTi, NASA, Xilinx, Inc., Los Alamos National Laboratory, SES Consultants, Inc., the National Science Foundation, Sandia National Laboratories, the Southwest Research Institute, and the Space Dynamics Laboratory.

Okay, as the subtitle states, this is a notebook from what I call a New Mexico diaspora (look up diaspora if you are asking). I was a former resident of New Mexico, now living elsewhere, but New Mexico is still my homeland. To get more in touch with your homeland one must be away from it. This is my attempt to understand it. I was a former anti-militarism activist in the Albuquerque area. Still believe that United Snakes militarism is the greatest threat to the world, as do the majority of the worlds population. Uncovered much information about the ties in New Mexico, but never processed it all. This blog is an attempt to do that. Also hope it may come of use to others with similar interests.
