About this book

This book includes a selection of 30 reviewed and enhanced manuscripts published during the 14th SpaceOps Conference held in May 2016 in Daejeon, South Korea. The selection was driven by their quality and relevance to the space operations community. The papers represent a cross-section of three main subject areas:

·         Mission Management – management tasks for designing, preparing and operating a particular mission.

·         Spacecraft Operations – preparation and implementation of all activities to operate a space vehicle (crewed and uncrewed) under all conditions.

·         Ground Operations – preparation, qualification, and operations of a mission dedicated ground segment and appropriate infrastructure including antennas, control centers, and communication means and interfaces.


This book promotes the SpaceOps Committee’s mission to foster the technical interchange on all aspects of space mission operations and ground data systems while promoting and maintaining an international community of space operations experts.

Reviews

“It provides all the most up-to-date, state of the art papers dealing with current issues offering solutions for the challenges to be tackled in the near and long term future. … the excellent printed book is complete with color graphics and high-resolution images, registers and extensive paper references justifying the investment to have the conference book available on your own bookshelf to be consulted not only for matters of the future but also for tracing background information on completed missions.” (Joachim J. Kehr, Journal of Space Operations & Communicator, opsjournal.org, Vol. 14 (3), 2017)
