    IAC-22 — 73rd International Astronautical Congress

    D6. IAF SYMPOSIUM ON COMMERCIAL SPACEFLIGHT SAFETY ISSUES

    Topics of this symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), address commercial safety and regulatory policy issues for orbital and suborbital space transportation and spaceports. The goal is to identify issues common to commercial operators of both human and robotic space vehicles to increase international safety and interoperability.

    D6.1. Commercial Spaceflight Safety and Emerging Issues

    Topics for this session cover commercial space transportation and safety issues including human and robotic vehicles, spaceports, reentry vehicles, in-space transportation vehicles, and regulations. Papers related to commercial space transportation are also encouraged on: policy and law; operations and training; best practices and standards; pilot, crew and participant safety; and ground operations and launch site safety.

    D6.2-D2.9. Emerging Space Ventures, including Space Logistics and Space Safety for Sustainability

    This session is dedicated to discussions of technical innovations or initiatives to achieve sustainable (considering cost, operability, capability and impact) Space Transportation Systems. Of particular interest are: - Identification of core evolving capabilities (systems, components, technologies) to conduct increasingly complex missions to a range of destinations over time - Addressing of emerging Space logistics, safety, technical challenges to foster flexible mission architectures using interoperability of building block components, and avoiding "one mission for one goal" (i.e. Single destination systems)

    D6.3. Enabling safe commercial spaceflight: vehicles and spaceports

    This session addresses new and existing spaceports and factors that launch vehicle and spaceplane operators may use in evaluating the selection of a launch and/or landing location. Topics include: safety, air and spaceport facilities, runways, geography, air and space traffic, weather, population density, access to workforce and technical support, customer needs, regulations, and other areas. Papers are welcome from spaceports, airports, space transportation providers, support equipment providers, academia, commercial companies and governments.

    D6.IP. Interactive Presentations - IAF SYMPOSIUM ON COMMERCIAL SPACEFLIGHT SAFETY ISSUES

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