Summary Report from 2023 AMOS Dialogue in Maui Now Available

Wednesday, January 10, 2024

The summary report is now available for the 2023 AMOS Dialogue in Maui, which has been held since 2013 in partnership with the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB) as part of the 2023 Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference.  

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 report from previous Dialogues can be found here.

The 2023 AMOS Dialogue discussed how to leverage the growing number of industry and civil society best practices to move towards a global set of space traffic management "rules". Overall, many participants felt that these best practices should be aspirational and not just rubber-stamping what is already being done and that they needed to be fairly easy to implement in order to ensure compliance amongst all actors (not just the more mature space powers). Participants also identified a few areas that should be prioritized, such as protections for human spaceflight, dealing with non-maneuverable objects, and sharing of owner-operator ephemeris.
