6th IAA Conference on Space Systems as Critical Infrastructure

The 6th IAA Conference on Space Systems as Critical Infrastructure took place on August 03-04, 2017 in Mamaia, Romania. The event was organised by the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) together with the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and this year’s edition was “Disruptive innovation and critical space infrastructure”. When it comes to the functioning of advanced societies, the increasing dependence on certain space systems places them firmly in the area of critical infrastructure, whose disruption or destruction would generate lasting damage. In this context, the aim of the event was to bring space experts at the same table and build a common rationale and straightforward understanding of the ways in which short and long-term space-related action should be framed for the benefit of all actors involved. Dr. Marius-Ioan Piso, President of the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) and IAA Trustee gave the opening presentation of the conference and moderated one of the three conference sessions on the larger theme of Disruptive innovation and critical space infrastructure. Session 1: Space Systems as Critical Infrastructure, Session 2: Mega-constellations, Nano-satellites, Nano-launchers and Session 3: Persistent communication and surveillance systems, orbital bodies removal.
