Stratospheric Operations and Research Symposium (SOaRS)
SOaRS aims to bring together lighter than air and heavier than air providers, enablers and customers that will help drive the rapid High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) and High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) development.
Since the early 21st century the aerospace industry has been trying to operationalize the stratosphere using HALE UAVs or HAPS. Join key symposium support from US DOD, UK MoD, key technology, and governance enablers in collaborating and driving forward HALE and HAPS development.
March 21 & 22, 2023
Memorial Union Ballroom
University of North Dakota
March 21 at 5:30- 8 p.m. | UND Memorial Ballroom
Discuss key drivers of Stratospheric Operations:
- Establishing the Need for HALE/HAPS
- Challenge of Stratospheric Operation
- Academic Enablers and establishing the workforce of the future
- Technology and Governance Enablers
- UK's Lead in HAPS Platforms
Learn, network, and engage in conversation about using HAPS emerging capability of stratospheric platforms to develop industry solutions.
