The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) reminds interested stakeholders to register for ANSI’s December 7, 2020 virtual meeting, Standardization and the Commercial Space Industry – Space Situational and Domain Awareness, Space Traffic Coordination and Management, and Orbital Debris Mitigation. Nineteen subject matter experts representing government, industry, non-governmental organizations, and academia will share their perspectives on policy instruments, industry standards, and best practices related to these topics. The meeting agenda is available online with links to speaker bios and background reading materials.
ANSI serves as administrator and coordinator of the U.S. private-sector system of voluntary standardization. In January, ANSI convened a half-day meeting on standardization and the growth of the commercial space industry. ANSI subsequently issued a survey inviting feedback on priority areas, areas needing coordination, and topics that could be discussed at a future ANSI meeting. The December event aims to raise awareness of relevant policy and standardization activity, and to facilitate dialogue on coordination and participation in standards-setting.
The meeting is scheduled to run from 11 am – 5 pm EST with breaks. It is open to all, but attendee registration is required.
