IAC BRIEFING: SPACE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT (AIAA et al), July 17, 2019, DC, 12:00-1:00 pm ET

In preparation for the 2019 International Astronautical Congress (IAC), which will be held in Washington DC from October 21-25, 2019, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and eight sister societies will hold three briefings and two receptions from April through September.  Details for some of the briefings are pending, but as of April 22 this is the schedule.

The briefing on July 17 is “Space Traffic Management” and will be held in 485 Russell Senate Office Building from 12:00-1:00 pm ET.  AIAA describes the event as follows:

Space has become increasingly seen as an economically advantageous environment. Coupled with the advancement of technology and broader launch opportunities, the number of objects in orbit around the Earth is ever increasing. The global space community recognizes the importance of creating an integrated approach to managing the system of satellites and other objects circling around our planet. Adding to the urgency is the pace of activities occurring in the private sector. Many look to the U.S. to guide the conversation and propose a solution to this complex problem. The panel will address some of the important issues involved in defining a framework for a global approach to space situational awareness/space traffic management.

Panelists:

  • Asha Balakrishnan, Research Staff Member, Institute for Defense Analysis, Science and Technology Policy Institute
  • Therese Jones, Senior Director of Policy, Satellite Industry Association
  • George Nield, President, Commercial Space Technologies LLC
  • Kevin O’Connell, Director, Office of Space Commerce, Department of Commerce
  • Sandy Magnus, Co-Chair, IAC Local Organizing Committee (moderator)
