ABOUT EPISODE 73
Large and mega constellations of small satellites are being launched and planned for low earth orbit. This proliferated environment has various regulatory bodies depending on who owns the satellite and what the purpose of the mission is – civil, commercial, scientific, educational, or defense. Who has accountability? With more satellites comes higher demand for spectrum to communicate with – who gets priority? And then there’s the question of debris – how do smart policies for debris mitigation, cyber security and proximity operations lessen the potential for smallsat debris? Aerospace experts Sam Sims and Barbara Braun speak to Colleen Stover about their research and recently released paper “Policy Compliance Roadmap for Small Satellites” in this episode!
