Approximately 80 representatives from government, industry, and academia were in attendance.(including Ron Hochstetler, one of our Founders) The workshop was organized into three serial sessions on advanced transportation concepts, advanced propulsion systems, and operational concepts, followed by three parallel sessions on technology priorities, organizational strategies, and metrics.
