    IAC-19 — 70th International Astronautical Congress

    E3. 32nd IAA SYMPOSIUM ON SPACE POLICY, REGULATIONS AND ECONOMICS

    This symposium, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), will provide a systematic overview of the current trends in space policy, regulation and economics, by covering national as well as multilateral space policies and plans. The symposium also integrates the 34th IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal roundtable.

    E3.1. International cooperation in using space for sustainable development: Towards a “Space2030” agenda

    As the societal benefits of space technologies and applications are growing, the international community has increasingly shifted its attention to their contributions to the global agendas on sustainability and development, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this regard, the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) has decided to develop a “Space2030” agenda and its implementation plan. This session provides the opportunity to discuss potential elements of such an agenda, especially how international cooperation in space activities can contribute to these objectives.

    E3.2. 50 years after Apollo 11: The future of space exploration and innovation

    50 years after humans first set foot on another celestial body, interest in space exploration is once again rising. Technological innovation, among other factors, has allowed both public and private actors to once again focus their energy beyond Earth orbit. However, today’s activities are characterized by cooperation rather than competition. This session provides an opportunity to reflect on lessons learned since Apollo 11 and to discuss the current challenges and opportunities in future space exploration missions.

    E3.4. Assuring a Safe, Secure and Sustainable Environment for Space Activities

    Space Activities provide a wealth of increasing benefits for people on Earth. However, space actors have come to realize that the benefits of the space infrastructure for the world community depend on technical, legal, policy and political means to keep a safe, secure and sustainable space environment. This session will explore the progress being made within multilateral fora, the private sector and individual countries in supporting the goal of a safe, secure and sustainable space environment. It will focus on outcomes of the LTS Working Group at UNCOPUOS, Guidelines agreed upon, new initiatives for STM and the way forward.

    E3.5-E7.6. 34th IAA / IISL Scientific-Legal Roundtable: Mega Constellations and Microsatellites: challenges, including registration and liability

    The 2019 Round Table will focus on the issues of mega constellations and microsatellites from both a legal and a technical perspective. The invited experts will share the analysis of the most pertinent issues, as well as views on how to approach this emerging trend in space activities successfully. There is a need to secure compliance with the principles of international space law, national regulatory regimes, as well as requirements for safe and sustainable conduct. Invited speakers (tbc): Ryan Noble (OneWeb), Jan Moriba (University of Austin), Stewart Eves (UK), Luca Rossettini (D-Orbit)

    E3.6. Economics of Procurement in Space Contracting

    For the major future institutional missions it is of vital importance for the public procurement authorities to have a solid and consolidated baseline prior to the initiation of the development phase. Such solid baseline needs to be supported and validated through a detailed assessment of the requirements in relation to the technologies available and under development. The new space era should go hand in hand with a new acquisition policy involving a progressive transfer of responsibilities and design authority to industry. This new distribution of responsibilities between the public sector and industry can become a reality as a result of different procurement policies such as joint proposal teams, joint dialogue phases and the concept of procurement as a service. Transfer to industry of the responsibility for the mission related technology preparation activities is another example. The economic impact of such approach could be substantial as it could lead to faster development times and earlier availability of the satellite functionalities / objectives. The session proposed will be structured with presentations and discussions by senior representatives from the public sector and industries, presenting a variety of different approaches proposed by the public procurement authorities and the experiences gained / views expressed by industry.
