Next Generation aircraft designs require innovative systems - engineered with fewer parts and lighter materials. AVOX Systems, part of the Zodiac Aerospace Group, maintains a very experienced engineering and design staff dedicated to improving our existing offerings and to finding new ways to deliver respiratory support in aircraft environments. In addition to being capable of entire system designs, including system integration and verification, we are also concentrating our research and development efforts in the areas of oxygen storage, where new lightweight technologies are in development and production; oxygen generation, including both chemical and pressure swing adsorption (OBOGS) systems; high efficiency delivery systems for passenger aircraft to minimize the weight of emergency oxygen systems; and, low cost valve and regulator designs. Avox Systems is located in Lancaster, New York and is a proud sponsor of SpaceVision 2012.
The Center for Space Nuclear Research (CSNR) is located in Idaho Falls, ID and operated by the Universities Space Research Association and Idaho National Laboratory. The CSNR is a focus for engaging university research scientists in research and development of advanced space nuclear systems, including power and propulsion systems, and radioisotope power generators. The CSNR creates opportunities for university researchers to collaborate with their counterparts at NASA, INL, and other DOE labs, in projects and initiatives to advance nuclear technologies for space exploration and other space applications.
The International Space University is a private non-profit institution, formally recognized as an institute of higher education in France by the French Ministry of Education (decree MENS0400386A of 27 February 2004). It specializes in providing graduate-level training to the future leaders of the emerging global space community at its Central Campus in Strasbourg, France, and at locations around the world. In its two-month Space Studies Program and one-year Masters program, ISU offers its students a unique Core Curriculum covering all disciplines related to space programs and enterprises, space science, space engineering, systems engineering, space policy and law, business and management, and space and society. Both programs also involve an intense student research Team Project providing international graduate students and young space professionals the opportunity to solve complex problems by working together in an intercultural environment. Since its founding in 1987, ISU has graduated more than 3300 students from over 100 countries. Together with hundreds of ISU faculty and lecturers from around the world, ISU alumni comprise an extremely effective network of space professionals and leaders that actively facilitates individual career growth, professional activities and international space cooperation.

The OpenLuna Foundation aims to return mankind to the moon through private enterprise. Initial goals focus on a stepped program of robotic missions coupled with extensive public relations and outreach. Following these purely robotic missions, a short series of manned missions will construct a small, approximately 6 person settlement based on a location scouted by the robotic missions. This settlement will be open for anyone's use (private individuals to government agencies), provided they respect our ethical conduct and heritage policies.
The Society of Satellite Professionals International is a nonprofit member-benefit society that serves satellite professionals throughout their careers. Specifically, this means: Promoting the development of — and access to — high-quality, satellite-related education on the post-secondary and continuing (adult) levels through scholarships, development of curricula, hosting conferences and publishing the world's first online journal on space communications. Helping satellite professionals to advance their careers by creating opportunities for them to do business with each other and learn from each other through Chapter programs, social networking, our membership database and publications. Working to increase the professionalism and professional standing of members in every sector of the global satellite industry through partnerships with leading educational institutions and the private sector. Honoring extraordinary achievement by satellite professionals and the companies they work for through the Satellite Hall of Fame and Industry Innovators awards programs.
The Space Frontier Foundation is an organization composed of space activists, scientists and engineers, media and political professionals, entrepreneurs, and citizens from all backgrounds and all nations. The Space Frontier Foundation is transforming space from a government-owned bureaucratic program into a dynamic and inclusive frontier open to people. SFF is determined to convert the image held by many young people that the future will be worse than the present, and rejects the idea that the world's greatest moments are in its past.
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University at Buffalo offers a range of excellent programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. We welcome students from New York State and around the world to work on cutting-edge technologies and to receive first-rate training in fundamental and applied aspects of Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering. Our award-winning faculty and talented students make the Department a fine setting for you to become a practicing engineer, study advanced topics or become an independent researcher. Many subjects addressed by Mechanical and Aerospace engineers are of an interdisciplinary nature. Our department is linked to many such activities. Please look over our website to discover the many opportunities that are available in our department.
The Department of Space Studies (www.space.edu), John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, University of North Dakota, USA, offers a premier online and campus based graduate program in the field of space studies. The Space Studies Master of Science degree offered since 1987 is a leading inter-disciplinary program in the world, combining space physical science, space life science, space engineering, space policy and law, space business and economics, and space history. The popular online program is ideally suited for early and mid-level space professionals who wish to enhance their career opportunities in the space arena. A Ph.D. program in Aerospace Sciences started in fall 2012. The Department of Space Studies is also the home of the NASA Space Grant and the NASA-EPSCoR programs in the state of North Dakota. This has allowed the department to become the nexus of NASA-related education and training infrastructure in North Dakota.
