    A1.4. Medicine in Space and Extreme Environments

    Over the last decades numerous space missions and experiments have taken place. The use of microgravity as a tool to study new fundamentals of life revealed a substantial number of new scientific insights and surprises. Space is the most famous extreme environment but different extreme environments also exist on Earth, such as high altitudes, confined and isolated environments like Antarctica and Arctica or even submarines. Results from research in these environments can be successfully applied for the benefits of human beings both in space and on Earth. This session will cover the latest scientific results and technological achievements from medical-physiological or psychological research in extreme environments for the benefit on Earth.

    A4. 52nd IAA SYMPOSIUM ON THE SEARCH FOR EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE (SETI) – The Next Steps

    This symposium, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), deals with the scientific, technical and interdisciplinary aspects of the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) on an international scale. SETI researchers are typically looking for anomalies in astronomical data, potentially associated with other technical civilisations in the Milky Way and beyond (so-called “techno-signatures”). The search includes all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum and utilises cutting-edge technologies deployed on some of the largest telescopes in the world. The interdisciplinary aspects of the topic involve the social and societal consequences of detecting a signal, engaging with a very wide variety of human cultural pursuits - including art, language, education, science, anthropology, sociology, psychology, legal, political and institutional issues, interactions with the media, public outreach and risk communication.

    B4.7. Constellations and Distributed Systems

    Small satellites offer important advantages in creating new opportunities for implementing spatially-distributed space-based systems (e.g. Constellations). In this session we focus on new, emerging, or enabling technologies that can be used or are being used to create networked data collection systems via small satellites. Specifically, Session B4.7 focuses on Constellations (e.g. Constellation missions for Earth Observation, IoT/M2M and LEO Communications), distributed architectures (e.g. Distributed SAR systems) and sensor systems and how these low-cost and rapidly delivered technologies offer the potential to fulfill complex user needs, working in coordination with other small or large space infrastructures (e.g. mega-constellations), as well as with airborne or terrestrial assets. Papers should show how cross-platform compatibility (both hardware and software aspects) can be used to enable these systems, any standards that are proposed or adopted, design techniques that enable this cross-platform compatibility, etc. We are particularly interested in technologies that enable small spacecraft to play an important role in upcoming applications, such as (but not limited to) civil security, telecommunications in remote areas, navigation support (e.g., along the new foreseen routes in the Arctic), natural disaster management (e.g., damage assessment and first responders support), and planetary exploration. In this regard, the development and usage of Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies are also of specific interest to the session. Distributed systems and their impact in terms of new opportunities for the emerging Commercial Space Industry and new commercial space missions with small platforms is also of specific interest to the session. The integrated applications of these sensor systems are covered in Symposium Session B5.2, and the broader view of tools and technologies to enable integrated applications are covered in B5.1. In B4.7 authors are also invited to analyze technological enhancements and new developments needed to guarantee small satellite integration with existing and scheduled assets from both the bus and payload perspectives. Also analysis of inter-operability within integrated systems can be addressed, like payload data management, spacecraft operation, and formation flying.

    C2. IAF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES SYMPOSIUM

    This symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), provides an international forum for recent advancements in assessment of the latest technology achievements in space structures, structural dynamics, and materials. The Symposium addresses the design and development of space vehicle structures and mechanical/thermal/fluidic systems. Future advances in several space systems applications for space power, space transportation, astrodynamics, space exploration, space propulsion and space station will depend increasingly on the successful application of innovative materials and the development of structural concepts - particularly those relating to very large deployable (and assembled) space structures. For these applications to occur, increased interaction between these technology communities, and collaboration among technologists and mission planners need to be pursued. Substantial improvements are essential in a wide range of current technologies, including nanotechnologies, to reduce projected costs and increase potential scientific returns from respective mission system applications. Papers in this symposium will review the projected advances in materials and space structures in this domain for advanced space systems applications.

    C3. IAF SPACE POWER SYMPOSIUM

    Reliable energy systems continue to be key for all space missions. The future exploration and development of space depend on new, more affordable and more reliable energy sources of diverse types ranging from the very small to the extraordinarily large. Moreover, the continuing support for space activities by the public requires that these activities are increasingly inserted into the global challenge to transition current terrestrial energy systems into more environmentally friendly, sustainable ones. The space sector has traditionally served as cutting edge precursor for the development of some renewable power systems. These activities are now put into a much larger space & energy perspective. These range from joint technology development up to visionary concepts such as space solar power plants. The Space Power Symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), addresses all these aspects, covering the whole range from power generation, energy conversion & storage, power management, power transmission & distribution at system and sub-system levels including commercial considerations. It will include, but not be restricted, to topics such as advanced solar and nuclear systems for spacecraft power and propulsion, novel power generation and energy harvesting, and examine the prospects for using space-based power plants to provide energy remotely to the Earth or other planets.

    D3. 21st IAA SYMPOSIUM ON BUILDING BLOCKS FOR FUTURE SPACE EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT

    This symposium, organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), will involve papers and discussion that traverse a wide range of highly valuable future space capabilities (FSC) – in other words “building blocks” for future space exploration, development and discovery – that could enable dramatic advances in global space goals and objectives. The international discussion of future directions for space exploration and utilisation is fully underway, including activities involving all major space-faring nations. Decisions are now being made that will set the course for space activities for many years to come. New approaches are needed that establish strategies, architectures, concepts and technologies that will lead to sustainable human and robotic space exploration and utilisation during the coming decades. The symposium will examine the possible paths, beginning with current capabilities such as the International Space Station, which may lead to ambitious future opportunities for space exploration, discovery and benefits. The sessions that comprise this symposium are key elements of current or planned International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) studies.

    D3.1. Strategies & Architectures as the Framework for Future Building Blocks in Space Exploration and Development

    Future scenarios for sustainable exploration and development in space will unfold in the context of global conditions that vary greatly from those of the 1950s-1970s (the first generation of space programmes, driven by international competition), or those of the 1980s-2000s (the second generation of space programmes, enabled by international cooperation). Looking to the future, it is likely that space-faring countries will pursue their goals and objectives in a more building-block fashion focused on developing high-value future space capabilities, rather than through massive, geo-politically driven programmes. Increasingly, these developments may also reflect future commercial space opportunities. As a result, it is important that the international community should engage in an ongoing discussion of strategies and architectures to frame a “building block” approach to our future in space. Such a discussion should involve sustainable budgets and multiple-purpose system-of-systems capabilities that lead to a diverse range of future activities of broad benefit to humanity. This session, which is related to a prospective new International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) study group, will address strategies and architectural approaches that may allow a new paradigm, a “building block” approach, to be established among the space-faring countries. Papers are solicited in these and related areas.

    D3.2A. Systems and Infrastructures to Implement Sustainable Space Development and Settlement - Systems

    The emergence of novel systems and infrastructures will be needed to enable ambitious scenarios for sustainable future space exploration and utilization. New, reusable space infrastructures must emerge in various areas include the following: (1) infrastructures that enable affordable and reliable access to space for both exploration systems and logistics; (2) infrastructures for affordable and reliable transportation in space, including access to/from lunar and planetary surfaces for crews, robotic and supporting systems and logistics; (3) infrastructures that allow sustained, affordable and highly effective operations on the Moon, Mars and other destinations; and, (4) supporting in space infrastructures that provide key services (such as communications, navigation, etc.). Considering its focus on design and operation solutions for future crewed missions, in 2023 this session will be jointly curated with the recently-formed IAF Space Habitats Committee, whose aims include fostering research and partnerships in the design, the construction, the scalability, the commercialization, the disassembling and the sustainability of space habitats and associated infrastructures, emphasizing Moon and Mars surface structures and orbital stations. Papers are solicited in all areas related to the scope of this session, from a variety of disciplinary approaches.

    D4.1. Innovative Concepts and Technologies

    1) In order to realize future, programs of space exploration and resource utilization, a focused suite of transformational new system concepts and enabling technologies must be developed during the coming decades. The technical objectives to be pursued should be drawn from a broad, forward-looking view of the technologies and system needed, but must be sufficiently focused, to allow tangible progression and dramatic improvements over current capabilities. 2) Ideally, the concepts should be presented in three categories: 1. Concepts which represent a significant advance, but require laboratory advancement, and 2. Concepts which have been demonstrated to some level in the laboratory, but require demonstration to validate their utility, and 3. Concepts which identify cross-cutting advances which, when combined can be successfully developed to support transformational new system concept. Papers are solicited in these and related areas

    D4.3. Modern Day Space Elevators Customer Design Drivers

    Modern Day Space Elevator design concepts are driven from many arenas. The first is the dynamic situation of deploying 100,000 km of tether in the space environment from the surface of the ocean to the altitude well beyond geosynchronous. Within the Earth based region there are design drivers due to the various environments ranging from the ocean and atmospheric demands near the Earth Port as well as the tremendous temperature range and environmental challenges of the vacuum of space. In addition, the architect and systems engineer must consider a vast range of requirements from customers. The demands of a million tonnes deposited on the surface of Mars (or the Moon) and the needs at geosynchronous for 3,000,000 tonnes of space solar power satellites solidifies requirements to move massive payloads routinely, daily, inexpensively and oriented to customers’ needs. In addition, the dramatic need to accomplish all of this without damaging the Earth’s atmosphere will ensure that the Space Elevator as the Green Road to Space will be realized. Indeed, these customer demands will lead to the realization that Space Elevators will enable missions of vast importance to humanity (saving the planet with Space Solar Power satellite delivery, Mars Settlement delivery, Lunar habitat support, and missions to the outer planets). This session will discuss needs of Space Elevators’ future customers and start the refinement of design criteria and identify customer requirements necessary to initiate realistic designs. The Keynote Speech for this technical session will be entitled the “Jerome Pearson Memorial Lecture.”

    D4.4. Strategies for Rapid Implementation of Interstellar Missions: Precursors and Beyond

    Knowledge about space beyond our solar system and between the stars—that is interstellar space —is lacking data. Even as IBEX, NASA’s Interstellar Background Explorer, studies the edge of our solar system, it still is confined to earth orbit. Arguably, some of the most compelling data to understand the universe we live in will come from sampling the actual environment beyond our solar system as Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft are on the threshold of doing. In the 36 years since the Voyager probes’ launches, significant advances in materials science, analytical chemistry, information technologies, imaging capabilities, communications and propulsion systems have been made. The recently released IAA study: “Key Technologies to Enable Near-Term Interstellar Scientific Precursor Missions” along with significant initiatives like the DARPA seed-funded 100 Year Starship and the Breakthrough Starshot project, signal the need, readiness and benefits to aggressively undertaking interstellar space missions. This session seeks to define specific strategies and key enabling steps to implement interstellar precursor missions within the next 10-15 years. Suggestions for defined projects, payloads, teams, spacecraft and mission profiles that leverage existing technological capacities, yet will yield probes that generate new information about deep space, rapidly exit the solar system and which can be launched before 2040 are sought.

    D4.5. Space Resources, the Enabler of the Earth-Moon Econosphere

    1) With NASA announcing the Artemis Program to return to the Moon by 2024, and increasing numbers of companies investing in extraterrestrial resource utilization, this session is dominated by technology assessments and legal analyses associated with space resources. 2) In particular, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is seeking commercially developed payloads to exploit lunar resources for supplies, fuel and other consumables. There are many opportunities to participate. 3) One issue which nags U.S. investors is the lack of a legal regime for authorization and continuing oversight of commercial entities seeking to exploit space resources for profit. Fortunately, Luxembourg has defined such a legal regime for its country’s payloads. 4) This session seeks innovative ideas and concepts in the legal and technological regime. This session also seeks willing investors to present concepts for financing concepts to exploit space resources

    D5. 56th IAA SYMPOSIUM ON SAFETY, QUALITY AND KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT IN SPACE ACTIVITIES

    Increasingly complex challenges around quality, safety, and security reflect how a space system can be developed and operated to perform its functions at its best with the proper robustness. In that environment, where radiation is not the least stress and possible ill-intentioned actions may occur, decreasing the level of failures in space activities is a must. Knowledge management (the proper capturing, protecting, and sharing of knowledge) and application of lessons learned and experience are key factors. This International Academy of Astronautics Symposium will be a lively discussion and raise awareness of new and innovative approaches to: obtain and run reliable and safe space systems: design solutions, validation, and tests; software development, validation, and security; and methods, management approaches, and regulations to improve the quality, efficiency, and collaborative ability of space programs and operations. All aspects are considered: risk management, complexity and security of systems and operations, knowledge and information management, human factors, economical constraints, international cooperation, norms, and standards.

    D5.1. For a successful space program : Quality and Safety!

    Space is a difficult challenge and no complex program can be successful without a creative and thoughtful approach to quality and safety! Relying on luck cannot be the only way to proceed. Beginners and veterans, in science or industry, for small or large programs, will share projects, methods, observations, and analyses of successes and failures. This session deals with methods, tests, and standards for the analysis and mitigation of the many risks to maintain the desired quality and required safety. It offers an opportunity to discuss all aspects of the life cycle (including design, development and production philosophy, and operations) and the associated risk management approach. It concerns all types of space missions: transportation systems, orbital systems, exploration vehicles, and is also a management, workforce, and education issue.

    D5.3. Predicting, testing, and measuring the effects of the space environment on space missions

    The space environment can strongly impact the performance and reliability of space missions. It has several natural and induced components, including high-energy radiation, plasma, atomic oxygen, planetary dust, extreme temperature, vacuum, microgravity, micrometeoroid and debris, and molecular and particulate contamination. Environmental conditions yield constraints at the design phase, and important risks in the course of the mission. The evaluation of the nominal and worst-case conditions to be met, mitigation and protection options, and of their impact on missions and flight systems are thus of prime importance. This session will encompass space weather, plasma, spacecraft charging, radiation, atomic oxygen, planetary dust, molecular and particulate contamination, plume-induced contamination effects and interactions, and combined environments such as flight measurements, physical processes, prediction of nominal or worst case condition, ground testing, flight experiments and lessons learned, modeling and prediction, and thermos-optical degradation effects.

    E3.5-E7.6. 37th IAA/IISL Scientific Legal Roundtable: "Space Launch from Celestial Bodies: Technology, Law and Policy"

    Space launches from Earth have long been the defining technical and legal qualification for states and other entities desiring to engage in the exploration and utilization of the outer space region. Representing a hard-won scientific and technological achievement, space launches are also the basis for assigning legal jurisdiction, supervision, and liability to the launching state under the five foundational outer space treaties. Rapidly growing numbers of non-governmental commercial space companies and facilities are soon moving space launch operations to the Moon and other celestial bodies, augmenting and in some cases replacing governmental space launch entities. Prospects for an extensive expansion of deep space explorations on the Moon, asteroids, and planets will include a greatly diversified range of space launch technologies and regulatory regimes. Space exploration will require both crewed and uncrewed launches, while sample return missions from asteroids, planets, and their moons will also feature dynamically evolving technologies as well as concerns for contamination and environmental protection. This 37th Joint IAA IISL Roundtable will examine the scientific, technical, legal, and regulatory aspects of space launches from celestial bodies.

    E3.6. Cost and Procurement impacts on Space Programmes linked to high inflation and world-wide scarcity of components and materials

    From the first half of 2021, the world-wide overall production and supply chain has been affected by a marked scarcity of electronic components, affecting several sectors including Space. Additionally, the period has been marked by a high inflationary trend which is now increasing rapidly, following the world crisis due to COVID and the geopolitical tensions. In this context, the role of countries/companies in space technology supply chains and space related services in Europe severely affected -directly or indirectly- by the economic/politic crisis could lead to acute challenges for Space Programmes for several years to come. The purpose of this technical session is to identify specifically the impacts on costs and on the procurement process of Space Programmes linked to high inflation and world-wide scarcity of components and materials, and to exchange on measures taken and additional ways forwards from Industry and Public Procurement Organizations perspectives, as well as to exchange on how these problems are addressed in the full commercial sector by customers and suppliers.

    E5.3. Contemporary Arts Practice and Outer Space: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach

    Since the late 1970s a number of artists have been negotiating access to space facilities and organisations, critiquing or making experiential the exploration and utilisation of space, or re-purposing space technology, materials or data independently or in direct exchange with the space sector. Today this important practice is branching into a several directions, ranging from performance, installation, video, or conceptual work situated in space or space analogous environments themselves, to commercial gallery contexts and the realm of participation and public engagement with science. This session addresses the practice of contemporary artists who have developed new ways to appropriate space for their work, the conceptual and practical foundations of their engagement, and the implications of this emerging aesthetic paradigm for both the fields of space and art. Submissions are welcome from artists and art historians, and from space industry and space agency representatives as well as from the cultural sector facilitating or programming related -projects crossing over the increasingly blurred boundaries of creative practice.

    E5.5. Sharing space achievements and heritage: space museums and societies

    Space societies, professional associations and museums form a special and important group of IAF members - nearly one quarter of the membership and, as a sector, second in size after space industries. They include professional societies, space museums, space associations, non-profit organizations and other organizations interested in space activities. Some have a large membership of 10 000 or more, others can be small; a few are already a century old, others are just being created. They exist in traditional and emerging space nations. Together they champion the interests of an impressive number of individuals and organizations connected to space. Space Museums are the visible face of space for most of the general public. This symposium offers a podium for ideas and proposals to enhance the interaction between the organizations, their members and the Federation. Papers may address proposals to exchange experiences and best practices; sharing articles, exhibitions or educational material; novel ideas to help outreach to the general public, etc. Of particular interest are papers exploring ways to foster communication and collaboration and to develop mutual benefits amongst young societies, representatives of emerging space nations and museums within and outside the IAF family.

    E6.4. Strategic Risk Management for Successful Space & Defence Programmes

    The space economy has arrived. Today, space is a vital component in spurring innovation and driving the development of state-of-the-art capabilities; Creating vast market opportunities; Accelerating global economic growth; Promoting collaboration; Building the capacity for scientific excellence; and Contributing to our safety and quality of life. By 2030, the space economy is projected to reach 1 trillion dollars. Nevertheless, in the current fraught geopolitical and economic context, it appears that no organization is fully prepared to capitalize on this near-term explosion of growth and avoid a “space hype bubble.” There will be extensive new markets, scientific advancements, and human benefits if we can mitigate risks and realize opportunities. Abstracts would be welcome on the following topics: - How are geopolitical and socio-economic changes affecting our risk management practices? What are the major consequences of current and future crises on our risk predictions? - Are we better prepared to foresee the “unpredictable” and grasp opportunities linked to the changing world? - Do we have the right capacity to face such changes in terms of Human resources and other capabilities?

    E7. IISL COLLOQUIUM ON THE LAW OF OUTER SPACE

    The 2023 IISL Colloquium focuses on how the latest technological developments are impacting the development of the law of outer space, and on whether space law should embrace new fields of activities, such as cyber, within its scope. The Colloquium looks at current discussions about questions related to the ethics and understanding of what is meant by treaty law terms freedom of exploration and use. It examines how space situational awareness (SSA), space surveillance and tracking (SST) can be integrated as elements within a greater framework for effective space traffic management. It serves as a forum to discuss developments of national space law as a constitutive element of the overall framework of space law enforcing and detailing the principles and general norms of space law, in particular within the field of security. It looks at whether existing legal concepts, particularly responsibility and liability for autonomous systems driven by artificial intelligence, are sufficiently regulated, and whether there is a homogenous approach to licensing at national level. It also provides insights as to how disruptive NewSpace activities can and should be accommodated by space law.

    E7.2. UNCOPUOS and ITU Registration of Large Constellations

    UNCOPUOS and ITU are two different international structures with interest in space activities. They have a contrasting history, material scope, and membership. Their diverging working methods manifest themselves in their approach to obtaining information about space objects. Whereas the method of advance publication, coordination and notification of frequency assignments used by radio stations onboard space objects, as well as their recording in the Master International Frequency Register used for decades by the ITU allows to obtain an early information about satellite systems, the 1975 UN Registration Convention elaborated by the UNCOPUOS requires limited information on space objects already launched into outer space. These differences become obvious in recent cases of registration of large constellations. The session invites papers which observe the methods of registration of large constellations, discuss the relation of UNCOPUOS and ITU, and analyze the possibility of their further synergies leading to the enhanced information of the space community about satellite networks and systems.

    E7.3. Legal Issues Relating to Emerging Space Activities on Celestial Bodies

    Plans to engage in activities on the Moon and other celestial bodies are rapidly developing. These range from possible resource exploitation activities all the way to permanent human settlements. Whilst the fascination with life ‘off-earth’ and the creation of a cis-lunar economy are inspiring many, they also require careful consideration regarding a range of legal issues and will necessitate the development of a clear legal framework to guide the way humanity engages in such activities. Among other issues, this session aims to explore questions about appropriate off-earth governance requirements, the rules that will regulate the interactions between humans living on celestial bodies and the regulation of any in situ resource exploitation and associated activities. This will involve an assessment of the existing legal framework for space as well as a ‘gap analysis’ as to what areas require further consideration.

    E7.4. Key Governance Issues in the New Space Age

    The New Age Space is qualified by new age technologies, applications and the use of space for new age space activities - in and off the Earth’s orbit. To consistently ensure safe, sustainable and secure use of outer space for peaceful purpose will become an ever more critical space governance concern. Therefore, given the general uncertainty around concepts like “ Benefit and Uses of Outer Space to all Humankind” , could we explore New Age Space qua the UN Development Goals 2030 in context to: (i) Role of New Age space technologies – telecommunications/RS&EO/GNSS to extend the benefits of space to developing and least developed countries; (ii) Space Environment Governance; (iii) Long Term Economic Development on Earth; (iv) Global Governance for Space Security and (iv) Capacity Building in Global Space Governance.

    E7.5. Supervision of Space Activities

    Corresponding to the important transformation of the space sector there is a growing importance to ensure that outer space remains free for exploration and use, and that all actors uphold the fundamental principles. Hence, the national regulators responsible for the authorization and continuing supervision of national space activities are required to put in place adequate means in place to ensure that the national activities are conducted with due regard to the corresponding interests of other countries. This is also reflected by inclusion of ‘supervision’ as Guideline A.3 of the LTS Guidelines (the Guidelines for the long-term sustainability of outer space activities adopted by COPUOS in 2019). What should be the role of space situational awareness (SSA) data, or how should various non-legally binding instruments pertaining to space activities be considered in this process?

    E7.6-E3.5. 37th IAA/IISL Scientific Legal Roundtable: "Space Launch from Celestial Bodies: Technology, Law and Policy"

    Space launches from Earth have long been the defining technical and legal qualification for states and other entities desiring to engage in the exploration and utilization of the outer space region. Representing a hard-won scientific and technological achievement, space launches are also the basis for assigning legal jurisdiction, supervision, and liability to the launching state under the five foundational outer space treaties. Rapidly growing numbers of non-governmental commercial space companies and facilities are soon moving space launch operations to the Moon and other celestial bodies, augmenting and in some cases replacing governmental space launch entities. Prospects for an extensive expansion of deep space explorations on the Moon, asteroids, and planets will include a greatly diversified range of space launch technologies and regulatory regimes. Space exploration will require both crewed and uncrewed launches, while sample return missions from asteroids, planets, and their moons will also feature dynamically evolving technologies as well as concerns for contamination and environmental protection. This 37th Joint IAA IISL Roundtable will examine the scientific, technical, legal, and regulatory aspects of space launches from celestial bodies.

    E7.7. Recent Developments in Space Law with Particular Focus on Space Debris Remediation

    The pollution of the most important orbits by space debris belongs to the pressing challenges for the international community. As a consequence a set of non-binding principles on space debris mitigation were drafted and agreed upon. Now the even greater challenge is the elimination of the waste from the orbits. In view of new existing technologies contributions are encouraged that highlight a possible legal framework for space debris remediation. Space debris remediation will be the special focus of this panel that moreover invites other contributions containing recent challenges for space legislation.

    E9.2. Cyber-based security threats to space missions: establishing the legal, institutional and collaborative framework to counteract them

    The increasingly pervasive network connectivity following the Internet explosion introduces a whole new families of cyber-security threats to space missions. To send commands to a spacecraft now you would not need to build a ground station, but you can penetrate from your home or office the existing ground infrastructures, bypassing their protection measures, from anywhere in the world. The questions to be addressed in the session will span across the following issues: - What is the interest of cyber-crime and cyber-activism with respect to space activities? - How are aerospace organisations managing the ability to introduce the right level of security measures in the process to plan and develop new missions? - What legal and protection framework is or has to be put in place to enable secure cooperation across corporate and international boundaries? - How is knowledge about security threats captured, shared, and used to follow the evolution of cyber threats? - Which ones of these specific threats are to be expected to target space missions, from the ground and from space? - What is particularly to be expected from the cyber-space to target outer space? Contribution are expected to focus on cyber-specific legislation, best practices, processes, collaboration methods between law enforcement and institutional partners, and any other aspects of the organization of space missions that are all constituting the formal components to keep a mission “cyber secure”.

    E9.3. Norms and Standards for Safe and Responsible Behaviour in Space

    The rapid expansion and evolution of the global space arena is characterized by an increasing number and diversity of space actors and the emergence of new kinds of space systems, some of which involve very large constellations of satellites numbering in the thousands to tens of thousands, and also new kinds of space activities, such as on-orbit servicing, refueling, in-orbit assembly and manufacturing, active debris removal, and so on. With increasing congestion in the Earth’s orbital environment, these new kinds of space activities raise questions about the safety of space operations, particularly when contingency situations arise (such as conjunctions), or when spacecraft operate in close proximity to each other and there are no clear, widely accepted international standards or norms of behaviour. For this reason, it is important to identify and leverage best practices from government and industry to ensure safety of flight and safe rendezvous and proximity operations of spacecraft. These best practices may subsequently be codified as norms and standards for safe and responsible behaviour in space. This session is intended to be a forum to allow practitioners to discuss and socialize the types of norms, standards and behaviours that would be conducive to the safety of space operations.

Results from the first impact deflection test with DART, e.g. results, incl. results from ground based observations regarding the orbital period change, physical characteristics of Didymos and Dimorphos, as well as geology of the impact site, revised numerical modelling of DART impact, as well as Didymos’ dynamics based on DART impact. 2. Results from sample return missions on NEO properties as well as expected results from other NEO missions. 3. Legal considerations that would contribute towards the decision to act. 4. Any other transdisciplinary research that enhances our understanding of making better decisions and ensuring successful mitigation of a threat posed by an asteroid or comet impact.

    GTS. GLOBAL TECHNICAL SYMPOSIUM

    The Global Technical Symposium (GTS) is designed to offer a modern and eclectic platform at the IAC for sharing technical content to an open minded audience on-site but also online! Jointly organized by associated technical committees and the Workforce Development-Young Professional Programme Committee, these sessions are similar to the conventional technical sessions in terms of abstract selection and paper submissions. However, in addition to the on-site presentation of the technical papers, these sessions are also broadcast online. Authors are allowed to present remotely or on-site, and participants are also allowed to listen to the session from the comfort of their homes or at their workplaces in addition to the IAC venue. The IAF hopes that this approach will enable more students and young professionals without the ability to join IAC on-site to contribute to discussion at the IAC.

    GTS.1-E6.5. Entrepreneurship Around the World

    Entrepreneurship has different characteristics that differ from country to country around the world. Some of the challenges that entrepreneurs face transcend national and cultural borders, but some others do not. This session welcomes papers and presentations that describe the barriers experienced by real entrepreneurs in their different countries and regions around the world. A summary discussion will identify the commonalities and unique characteristics of nation-specific entrepreneurial barriers as identified by the presenters. This is a technical session co-sponsored by the IAF Entrepreneurship and Investment Committee (EIC) and the IAF Workforce Development/Young Professionals Programme Committee, as part of the Global Technical Sessions – presenters can present in person at the IAC or from their home/work/university location.

    GTS.5-B4.9. Small Satellite Missions Global Technical Session

    The Small Satellite Missions Global Technical Session (GTS) is a collaboration between the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Small Satellite Missions Symposium and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) Workforce Development/Young Professionals Programme Committee. This session is unique in that it allows for sharing of information on a global scale with presenters and audience both at the IAC venue and online at their home/work/university locations. Abstracts are solicited regarding operational missions or mature proposals for small satellite systems and related topics. These must have clear relevance on an international scale or at a business level, and must also provide young professionals a taste of what the space sector has to offer. Where possible, abstracts should have a wide interest in the community and should include transferable knowledge or lessons learned. Abstracts highlighting ingenuity or innovation are preferred. Examples include space missions utilizing small satellites that address specific new societal, scientific or commercial challenges, or novel technologies that have the potential to revolutionize space missions and/or enable their access to space. Papers are to describe the specific need, the small satellite approach that addresses this need, the benefits of this approach and the use of space technology, and demonstrate that other non-space approaches provide inferior solutions. Papers from, or directed at the young professional community are preferred. This session will be accepting submissions for oral presentations only.
