    IAC-21 — 72nd International Astronautical Congress

    B6. IAF SPACE OPERATIONS SYMPOSIUM

    The Space Operations Symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), addresses all aspects of spaceflight operations. The sessions address both manned and un-manned space operations, from low-Earth and geosynchronous orbit, to lunar, planetary, and exploration missions. The symposium covers both flight and ground systems, and included mission planning, training, and real time operations. Particular focus is provided for commercial space operations, advanced systems, new operations concepts, and small satellite operations.

    B6.5-A6.10. Joint Space Operations / Space Debris Session – STM Operations

    This joint session will deal with every aspect of STM Operations and Security. It facilitates discussions between Space Operations and Space Debris communities for shared understanding of the challenges/issues in operating in a debris-rich environment. It deals with STM – Operations and security. Lessons learned from CAM operations, HSF and PMD are especially welcome. Looking into the future: improved STM; automated CAM; and large constellation operations in LEO are key challenges for the community and require the appropriate regulatory environment.

    B6.IP. Interactive Presentations - IAF SPACE OPERATIONS SYMPOSIUM

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Operations 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 ten 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 B Category at a special ceremony. An Abstract that follows the standard format must be submitted by the deadline for standard IAC abstracts.
