Wednesday, October 21, 2015

On October 6, SWF Technical Advisor Brian Weeden participated in a panel discussion at the 3rd Spacecraft Anomalies and Failures Workshop in Chantilly, Virginia, which was organized by Integrity Applications Incorporated (IAI) and co-sponsored by the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The goal of the workshop series is to encourage and facilitate greater data sharing between spacecraft operators on diagnosing and resolving spacecraft anomalies and failures, and to help distinguish between natural and human-generated disturbances to satellites.
Mr. Weeden's presentation focused on the growing number of new international and commercial actors in space, and the challenge of bringing them up to speed on best practices for safe and sustainable space operations. Mr. Weeden highlighted SWF's efforts to develop a Handbook for New Actors in Space as one method of disseminating knowledge throughout the space community.
