Join us at the 11th annual International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC), to be held July 25-28, 2022, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Explore the ways in which you can utilize the International Space Station (ISS) to maximize your R&D goals. The International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC) brings together leaders from the commercial sector, U.S. government agencies, and academic communities to foster innovation and discovery onboard the International Space Station (ISS). ISSRDC showcases how the space station continues to provide a valuable platform for research and technology development that benefits humanity and enables a robust and sustainable market in low Earth orbit. Additionally, the ISSRDC marketplace expo allows companies to showcase how they are advancing opportunities in low Earth orbit and provides a venue to meet with researchers, stakeholders, and policymakers.

As an ISSRDC Silver Sponsor and one of the largest providers of in-space manufacturing and commercial solutions, Redwire will be showcasing its in-space manufacturing, bioprinting, and plant science capabilities during the four-day conference. Attendees will also be able to learn more about Redwire’s involvement on the Orbital Reef team, which is designing a commercially owned and operated space station in low-Earth orbit. Be sure to catch us at the following locations: 
– Main Stage Plenary Sessions | Monday & Thursday

Panel: Space Policy Outlook
10:05-11:15 a.m. Tuesday, July 26 

For more than 20 years, the nation’s space policies have enabled humans to live and work continuously onboard the ISS. Research leveraging this powerful platform is advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies that facilitate long-duration exploration into deep space and benefit life here on our planet. Building on this experience, the next decade provides the opportunity to further accelerate U.S. leadership in space. This panel will discuss how current U.S. space policy will influence the next decade of space-based research, the role of public and private partnerships, and the development of a thriving economy in low Earth orbit.
