The Small Payload Rideshare Association (SPRSA) was established to organizes and conduct the Small Payload Rideshare Conference.  The conference focuses on concepts and technologies that will enable the small payload community to meet future launch needs and test new capabilities in a cost-effective manner. The conference has evolved into a forum where the launch services community interacts with the small satellite community in a focused, working environment to address the needs of the community for affordable small payload access to space and the impediments hampering its success.
