    SPACE 410 – Rendezvous & Proximity Operations

    Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

    The continued development and employment of dual-use technologies and techniques in space provide opportunities and threats to the continued, and unfettered, use of the space domain for commercial, military, and science users. Our Advanced Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO) Course provides students a higher level of understanding and knowledge of the principles, techniques, constraints, and impacts of RPO from launch to on-orbit maneuvers. We examine the opportunities RPO offers for on-orbit inspection, repair, refuel, debris removal, and other support missions to maximize an increasingly congested domain. Students also think through RPO’s impacts to national and international security implications as part of a contested operating environment.

    SPACE 310 – Adversary Space Capabilities II

    Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

    China and Russia threaten the ability of nations around the world to deter aggression, protect national interests, and fight and win future conflicts. Simultaneously, the rapidly expanding commercial space industry provides low-cost space capabilities & options for nations and actors across the globe to enter a previously inaccessible domain. China and Russia are developing a wide array of counter-space weapons to hinder international access to essential space services and purposefully interfere with the electromagnetic spectrum. Private industry is developing orbital maintenance and orbital debris removal capabilities which will represent future counterspace threats. This course flows through the Threat Continuum providing required insight to ensure freedom of action in space and, when necessary, defend against threats and deny adversary freedom of action in space. (Prerequisite: Space 300)

    Space Sustainability: Strive for a Cleaner Future

    Short course (Online) by Altair Academy · $24.99 (~£20) · Current

    Space sustainability is the concept of ensuring the Earth’s outer space environment is kept safe and viable for current and future generations. It involves reducing the amount of debris created by space exploration and other activities in outer space to maintain the long-term viability of human activities in space.

    UK IOSM Workshop: Exploring the future for In Orbit Service & Manufacturing

    Seminar (Harwell and Online) by Satellite Applications Catapult · Free · Past

    Space is now a vital component of the infrastructure that impacts the daily lives of all society. Over the past 20 years the UK space community has built one of the most innovative, highly skilled sectors in the whole UK economy. We must, however, go further. Space is only growing in importance globally, as is the value of the space economy worldwide. The Space Growth Partnership (2018) identified the In-Orbit Services and Manufacturing (IOSM) market as one of the key growth areas of the UK space industry and a cumulative overall global market size for IOSM of greater than US$4.4 billion is projected by the end of this decade.

    Clean Space Training Course

    Short course (Belgium and Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) · Free · Current

    A course on how to design a satellite that will not generate debris; will remove defunct satellites and debris already in orbit; and will be environmentally friendly. Students will even undertake group projects to learn how to design a “clean” satellite.

    Sustainability in Space? Could Safety Cases Help

    Seminar (Online) by Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) · Free · Past

    The growth of satellites in orbit has been matched by a growth in orbital debris. With the recent increase in mega constellations, the importance of taking a sustainable approach to space operations is increasingly a priority. Since the earliest days of space activity, international agreements such as the Outer Space Treaty, national laws and licensing, and of course standards and guidance have all played a part in ensuring that a balanced approach is taken to space operations. But what else can be learnt from other sectors ? This talk will explore what aspects of the ground based regulatory environment in the UK could be usefully applied to a hypothetical Safety Case in Space approach. Considering a generic low earth orbit mid-sized satellite, the pros and cons of a potential safety case informed approach will be explored for a full lifecycle in orbit operation, from deployment through to de-orbiting.
