The High Altitude and Near Space Conference seeks to expand the marketplace of ideas essential to growing the Near Space industry currently supported by US government and commercial interests including smaller entrepreneurial companies like Sanswire which together lay the foundation for opportunities in the Near Space marketplace.

Sanswire Chairman Michael K. Clark, a keynote presenter at the conference, stated, "As the demand for near space solutions increase, I feel strongly that there needs to be an enhanced focus of capitalizing the industry utilizing both public and private funding sources. The near space sector is the ultimate piece of real estate in the sky that can significantly impact many of today's global economic and cultural challenges and the innovators developing the technology to successfully operate in near space will be the leaders in the next generation of communications."

Sanswire CEO Glenn Estrella stated, "Following the recent sale of our mid-altitude SkySat UAV platform and the subsequent delivery of the STS-111 UAV to our partner's facilities, we determined that sponsoring the High Altitude and Near Space Conference is the right opportunity to present our current technology roadmap directly to an industry leading forum focused on the rapidly developing near space industry. The conference provides a platform to discuss the future of the Near Space market, as well as nurture entrepreneurial relationships in this field," Mr. Estrella concluded.

Visitors to the Sanswire booth can speak with company representatives about Sanswire's technology and current programs and the benefits of Sanswire's unique approach to high altitude operations.
