2013 OOS and ADR Scenario Workshop

When: Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Where: Sheraton Towers, Singapore

SWF hosted a half-day, closed-door discussion of potential on-orbit satellite servicing (OOS) and active debris removal (ADR) scenarios. Attendees included experts in the fields of space policy, space law, and space operations from the United States, Australia, Japan, China, India, Switzerland, Germany, and Canada.

The discussion centered around two scenarios of possible ADR or OOS activities in space and the legal, policy and international political challenges they might engender. Key areas highlighted included sovereignty of space objects, liability, licensing, and transparency and confidence building measures.
