I think we can get academia and industry to help and contribute to this work.  The problem is purely PR/Marketing.  We need to raise awareness of this and help make sure the right groups and researchers know about it.

We've had some conversations with academics who have indicated they would like to be engaged with SMART, and who have relevant and interesting research to bring to the table. We've also seen interest from industry, who are keen to support and see the value in such a group in the IRTF and the problems we describe. And of course, any contacts you have are very welcome to join in the group too - the more, the merrier!
