SATC also organised a “Global Network Forum” (GNF) panel event, titled “Space Architecture and Systems Engineering: different disciplines or the same?“. Featuring panelists from a diverse group representing different countries, genders, agencies, industries, and academia, the panel event was a success and was well attended.
