Now posted on the ISEC website is ISEC’s Strategic Plan for 2014/15. The “ISEC Year” starts and ends at the yearly space elevator conference it sponsors, the most recent being at the end of last August and held at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.
As part of the Strategic Plan, ISEC decides on a “theme” for the upcoming year, a topic of interest that ISEC will focus on for the next 12 months and also the subject of the ISEC report for this year.
For this coming year, ISEC has decided upon two themes; “Marine Node Design Considerations” and “Tether Material Status Update“. I don’t expect an ISEC report to be produced about the Tether Material, but it’s good to periodically revisit this subject as it continues to be (pun intended), the “long pole” in the tent…
Dr. Peter Swan, the President of ISEC, has recruited Vernon Hall to head up the Marine Node Design Considerations effort (I blogged about this earlier) while ISEC Director Dr. Bryan Laubscher will be heading up the Tether Material Status Update project.
So, go take a look at the current ISEC Strategic Plan, and if you see something that interests you and you want to get involved, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
