Call for Presentations


MTD19 is accepting late presentation submissions. 

It is my pleasure to offer you an opportunity to present at Mirror Technology Days 2019. Tech Days 2019 is accepting three distinct types of presentations:

1. Review of Funded Research: Contractors with current Government funding (e.g., SBIRs, NASA ROSES, DIIs, etc.) are invited to review their accomplishments of the last year and plans for the future.

2. Success Stories: Contractors are invited to present how past or present government-funded mirror technology development efforts have either been integrated into a Government program or reached the commercial marketplace.

3. Technology Needs: Prime Contractors and/or Systems Integrators are invited to identify specific technologies which they would like for the Government to have developed.

Please remember, presentations should not be of a generic capabilities or ‘commercial’ nature.

Projects to be reviewed include Government-sponsored mirror technology development for any application (such as telescopes, imaging systems, seeker/trackers, high-energy laser systems, solar energy, etc.) which requires optical components. Tech Days covers technology investment efforts in: optical materials; substrate design & manufacture; optical fabrication and metrology technology; optical coatings; wavefront sensing and control via adaptive optics; nano-technology imaging technologies; etc.

Please send your presentation information to ron.eng@nasa.gov:
   Presentation Title
   Presenter Name
   Company Name
   Sponsoring US Government Agency
   OPEN or CLOSED Session

OPEN sessions are for basic mirror technology development research. CLOSED sessions are Export or ITAR Controlled Presentations. Attendance for CLOSED sessions is restricted to US Citizens and Green Card Holders.

As always, Contractors working on Government funding have three options: 1) you can prepare and present your own presentation; 2) you can prepare your own presentation and have your Government sponsor present it on your behalf; or 3) your sponsor can prepare and present a presentation of your activities on your behalf.

Before arriving at Tech Days, each presenter is responsible for getting all necessary public release clearances for their presentations. All OPEN presentations must be fully public - containing no proprietary or Export Controlled information. I will need a copy of each author’s public release authorization. Authors are expected to bring an electronic version of their presentation that can be loaded onto the conference computer for projection.
