On-Orbit Servicing in a Global Context



On-orbit servicing redefines the concept of long-term sustainability for satellite industries and space-faring nations around the world. This panel will compare and contrast the increasing interest among nations to develop orbital servicing technologies — from tugs, to repair, to end-of-life services — and how nations are approaching regulation of these activities. How is the U.S. poised for leadership for these activities? What are other nations implementing for regulation? What complicating factors exist in establishing best practices across the range of satellite servicing activities?
