Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies Conference (AMOS 2017)
Maui Economic Development Board is pleased to announce that the 18th annual Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference is scheduled to take place September 19-22, 2017 at the Wailea Marriott in Maui, Hawaii.
The AMOS Conference brings together operators, researchers, technologists and system developers who are working in many areas of space domain awareness. The Conference consists of a technical program, policy forum sessions, featured speakers, optional technical tour, short courses, poster sessions and exhibits. Over 100 papers will be presented with opportunities for networking and technical discussions – all in an environment that stimulates the imagination and intellect of participants through its beautiful and unique Hawaiian hospitality.
International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2017
This year the IAC is being held in Adelaide from September 25-29. The IAC is the world’s largest annual gathering of space professionals and its parent organisation is the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) that is based in Paris. IAC’s have been held every year since 1950. In 1998 the Congress was held in Melbourne and the 2017 event will be only the second time it has been held in Australia.

2016 STEM X Academy Summer School
SERC was a proud sponsor of the 2016 STEM X Academy summer school. The summer school supports STEM teachers from around Australia to develop the experts our future will require.
Introduction to Astrodynamics Lecture
In late November 2015, SERC hosted a visiting lecturer series: Introduction to Astrodynamics given by Professor Jizhang Sang.
Professor Sang obtained his Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Geodesy from Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and his PhD in Satellite Navigation from Queensland University of Technology in 1997.
Professor Sang was engaged as a research engineer at EOS Space Systems from 1998 to 2013 where he led the Astrodynamics research group and was responsible for many of the cutting-edge algorithmic developments underpinning the optical and laser tracking capability for debris tracking, orbit determination and space situational awareness.
He joined Wuhan University as a professor in Geodesy and Navigation in 2013 through China’s “The Thousand Talents Plan”. His research interests include satellite/debris orbit mechanics, space tracking, conjunction analysis, space geodesy, and satellite navigation.
