The Technical Exhibits Session is a unique opportunity to observe displays and demonstrations of state-of-the-art hardware, design and analysis tools, and services applicable to advancement of guidance, navigation, and control technology. The latest commercial tools for GN&C simulations, analysis, and graphical displays are demonstrated in a hands-on, interactive environment, including lessons learned and undocumented features. Associated papers not presented in other sessions are also provided and can be discussed with the author. Enjoy an excellent complimentary buffet and interact with technical representatives and authors. This session takes place in a social setting and family members are welcome!

HOSPITALITY SUITES

Hospitality Suites are permitted; however, the suites must not be open during or interfere with Conference sessions or scheduled activities. Representatives from companies hosting a hospitality suite must be registered with the conference and participate in the Technical Exhibits Session. Notification of the suite may only be posted on the Conference bulletin board. These restrictions are put in place to maintain the spirit of technical emphasis for this conference. Companies must make their own arrangements for a suite with Beaver Run Resort and pay all related expenses.

Companies wishing to conduct familiarization or training on their simulation tools or services products are welcome to do so within the same guidelines as for hospitality suites.

SPONSORSHIP

The Guidance and Control Conference is fully self-supported, organized by dedicated volunteers, and funded by annual registration fees and corporate donations.  All excess revenues benefit local school and university students through grants supporting educational aerospace programs. A voluntary contribution of $400 for an 8-foot space and $800 for a 16-foot space would identify your company as a Corporate Sponsor and would contribute directly to the success of this conference session by helping to defray costs and to support the Section’s educational outreach programs. See Outreach for complete information about the voluntary contribution. Contributions may be arranged with a Technical Exhibits Session Co-Chairperson by contacting aas.gnc.exhibits@gmail.com, submitted during the conference, or submitted electronically using the link below. Except for normal conference expenses of registration and lodging and the possible voluntary contribution, there are no additional costs for participating in the Technical Exhibits Session. As a Corporate Sponsor, your company’s support will be recognized throughout the conference and highlighted during the Technical Exhibits Session.
