    D1.1. Innovative and Visionary Space Systems

    This session will explore innovative concepts, and services for space applications in future scenarios. The session objective is to broaden the popportunities for innovation in order to foster the involvement of people, from researchers and subject matter experts to other appropriate stakeholders, in building and advancing the future vision of novel and transformational space systems and relevant applications. In this perspective, the dreams of yesterday are the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow. By proposing novel concepts of space systems, and applications, we can broaden today’s paradigm towards preferrable outcomes beyond incremental advancements.

    D1.2. Space Systems Architectures

    This session addresses current and future space systems architectures designed to realize promising concepts for Earth orbiting or exploration missions, both robotic and crewed. These architectures and their elements and building blocks should aim at an increase in functionality, performance, efficiency, reliability and flexibility of operations, while building on state-of-the-art, innovative or even disruptive technologies. The scope of the session includes architectures for single satellite systems or multiple satellite systems, such as constellations, formations, swarms, distributed systems, and system-of-systems (including hybridization with terrestrial systems). Ground-versus-space allocation of functionality and aspects of autonomy, both on-board and on-ground, may be addressed.

    D1.3. Technologies to Enable Space Systems

    This session will focus on innovative, technological developments that are usually high risk, but which have the potential to significantly enhance the performance of existing and new space systems. Enabling innovative technologies for space applications often result from spin-ins which will be discussed during the session, together with potential spin-offs. Examples include instrumentation, biotechnology, components, micro- and nano-technology, MEMs, advanced new structures and software techniques.

    D1.4A. Space Systems Engineering - Methods, Processes and Tools (1)

    This session will focus on state-of-the-art systems engineering methodologies that reduce the time and cost, and improve the quality of space system design. Of special interest are multi-disciplinary methods, processes, and tools used for System Design, Product Realization, Technical Management, Operations, and Retirement of space systems to improve risk management, safety, reliability, testability, and quality of life cycle cost estimates. Specifically, presentations may include: state of organizational structures, practice methods, processes, tools, training that benefit space system design, development and operations; state of the art systems engineering methodologies for space systems, including space system(s) of systems (SoS); engineering design methods or modeling and simulation tools applied to space system design and optimization; methodologies and processes for technical planning, control, assessment and decision analysis of space system design; advancement in space system development environments, such as concurrent engineering design facilities; and novel methods to improve risk management, earned value management, configuration management, data management, availability, safety, reliability, testability and quality of life cycle cost estimates.

    D1.5. Lessons Learned in Space Systems: Achievements, Challenges, Best Practices, Standards.

    This session addresses Lessons Learned in Space Systems on all aspects of life cycle. The learning from the past is the necessary way to ensure mission success of future missions. This retrospective viewpoint includes the achievement of mission accomplishments, the challenges to overcome the difficulties and the best practices to lead the mission success, incorporating documentation of Lessons Learned. The scope of the session also includes the standards in design, development and operation; lessons learned in design, development and operation; achievement from development in project management; achievement from mission success and on-orbit operation; best practices of project management and systems engineering; challenges in project or program development; challenges to overcome the difficulties on orbit; improvement of a Space system from former system development and operation; discussion of standards to assure the mission; and the documentation of learned lessons to preserve and make them available to future missions.

    D1.6. Cooperative and Robotic Space Systems

    This session will focus on cooperative and robotic systems as they apply to the space domain. This emerging topic includes concepts such as constellations, multi-satellite architectures, and on-orbit servicing of space systems and technologies. Hosted payloads, where their objectives may be unrelated to the principal mission, are also addressed. Additional areas of interest include collaborative robotic systems, such as space robotic systems and manipulators, robotic/human interactions and distributed multi-agent technologies. Papers in this session will look at current missions and future opportunities, while addressing both benefits and challenges as the world-wide space community moves into these exciting areas.

    D1.IP. Interactive Presentations

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Systems addressed in the classic Sessions. The presentation will be displayed on a digital screen in a dedicated location and available for view by all Congress attendees for the entire Congress week. In addition, one afternoon is dedicated exclusively for the attendees to view the Interactive Presentations, and the author will be assigned a specific eight minute slot to personally present the topic and interact with the attendees present. The Interactive Presentation may take advantage of all electronic display capabilities, such as: PowerPoint charts, embedded hot links, pictures, audio and video clips etc. An award will also be presented to the author of the best Interactive Presentation in the D Category at a special ceremony. An Abstract that follows the standard format must be submitted by the deadline for standard IAC abstracts.
