The Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB) and the Aerospace Corporation led the annual International SSA/STM Policy Exchange on 4 April 2022. This was the fourth invitation-only International SSA/STM Policy Exchange held in conjunction with the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
The enduring goal of the International SSA/STM Policy Exchange is to provide an opportunity to develop and advance relationships among key international SSA/STM policymakers and to share and explore relevant opportunities and challenges among domestic agencies/ministries and transnational entities. This year’s exchange sought to identify, categorize, prioritize, and institutionalize approaches for addressing new complex concerns raised by ACA collision avoidance systems. To accomplish this, the exchange built upon the key findings from the 2021 SSA Data Operator Exchange workshop. The session was co-hosted by the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the Space Agency of the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) and the UK Ministry of Defense (UK MOD).
