2019 AMOS Dialogue in Maui

When: Thursday, September 19, 2019

Since 2013, Secure World Foundation (SWF) has partnered with the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB) to hold an invite-only workshop that promotes collaboration and cooperation on space situational awareness (SSA). This year's Dialogue will take place during the 2019 Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference, held in Maui, Hawaii,  Sept. 18-20, 2019.  

The goal of the AMOS Dialogue series is to facilitate discussion among key stakeholders in space situational awareness (SSA), thereby promoting greater collaboration and cooperation to enhance SSA for safe and responsible space activities. To accomplish this, the Dialogue brings together representatives from current and future SSA programs and initiatives around the world with a variety of end users and stakeholders so that they may exchange information and views in a not-for-attribution setting. 

The topic of the 2019 AMOS Dialogue will be a discussion of open access data repositories to improve SSA data sharing. There is growing interest from both governments and satellite operators in merging different sources of SSA data together and in some cases making the fused data more widely available, with a few pilot programs and prototypes in the planning stages. This year’s Dialogue will bring together governments, satellite operators, and astrodynamicists to discuss the key characteristics of such data repositories and how they can provide better data and services over existing solutions while also fostering trust with users.
