Welcome to

The NSMMS & CRASTE Joint Symposia

21 – 24 June, 2021

Rockville, Maryland

NSMMS and CRASTE, two space focused conferences, will co-locate events for the 9th year at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Rockville, MD. These co-located Symposia continue their outstanding legacy in bringing together technologists, users, and decision makers from across the nation. Key discussion involves key technology issues related to space, missile, hypersonic systems, and a variety of ground-breaking commercial space topics necessary for our Country’s defense and research and development pursuits. What this means for you – you can attend two events with one trip, experience an expanded exhibit show and poster session, have more people to network and exchange ideas with, and have even more technical talks to participate in.

The 2021 forum will have a joint senior level Plenary Session, a variety of technical sessions covering ground-breaking research and technology, a deep dive into special topics via a full day of tutorials and workshops; a Small Business Forum designed to match small business capabilities with OEM and agency needs; a student grant program which promotes college-level participation in science and technology; a work-share and job board program to promote workforce development; an industry showcase exhibit show; a technical poster session; and a variety of networking and collaboration events.

NSMMS focuses on the material industry’s needs and most recent advances to enable new capabilities for challenges associated with new and future space and missile systems. A special focus is given to advanced materials technology development which is crucial to improve performance and reliability of both defense and commercial systems.

CRASTE brings system integrators and subsystem technology experts together to improve space access capabilities and responsiveness. Special focus is given to the integration of emerging technologies, including advanced concepts, with space-access architectures to create new markets and improve existing systems for government and commercial users.
