Communications Satellite Systems:  A Look Back at the First 50 Years and Thoughts on the Next 50

Cleveland, Ohio, October 17 - 20, 2016


Cleveland, a city of about 390,000 inhabitants, is located in the State of Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River and quickly became a manufacturing center due to its location on the lake, and to numerous canals and railroads.
The downtown area was planned in the early 20th century and contains many notable monuments, buildings and amenities within walking distance of the lake shore.

Located next to the Cleveland Hopkins Airport is the NASA Glenn Research Center, where the ACTS satellite that launched Ka Band was conceived and managed and where most Ka Band communications and propagation experiments were carried out.

Cleveland is also famous as the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Clinic, for cultural institutions and for a large variety of both ethnic and haute cuisine restaurants.

The most convenient airport to is the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
