Meetings and Workshops

Meetings of the JANNAF Interagency Propulsion Committee are held to support the JANNAF mission of facilitating the exchange of technical information and problem-solving in areas of joint agency interest. JANNAF meetings are held twice each year, in the spring and in December. Groups of three to four subcommittees meet approximately every 18 months, with the JANNAF Propulsion Meeting (JPM) rotating annually with the subcommittees that meet in the spring.
