Global Satellite System for monitoring and forecasting of the Earth seismic activity

B052
Global Satellite System for monitoring and forecasting of the Earth seismic activity, published in May 2017, 131 pages. The Cosmic Study shows that Ionosphere precursors of increasing seismic activity are still difficult to identify and even theory of seismic-ionosphere need to be elaborated. As a consequence the Cosmic Study calls for research to verify hypotheses concerning mechanisms of the seismo-ionosphere link.

Space Traffic Management - Towards a Roadmap for Implementation

B051
Space Traffic Management - Towards a Roadmap for Implementation, Published in June 2018, 156 pages. This study revisits the topic of Space Traffic Management (STM) with the purpose of providing an updated inter-disciplinary context and of supporting decision-making in the global community. In 2006, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) took on the task of conducting a first study on STM (the “Cosmic Study”), then kick-starting a process of discussion of STM as a means to effectively deal with the increasing challenges space actors face.

Public/Private Human Access to Space - Vol. 2

B050
Public/Private Human Access to Space - Vol. 2 - Earth Orbit and beyond, Published in January 2018, 88 pages. The chartered theme of the cosmic study group is “Public/Private Human Access to Space,” informally referred to in this report as the “Human Orbital Market” or the “HOM” cosmic study group. The goal of the HOM cosmic study is to estimate the emergence of HOMs for different countries or regions around the world. This cosmic study employs a five-phase approach that incorporates multiple research methods.

Definition and Requirements of Small Satellites Seeking Low-Cost and Fast-Delivery

B048
Definition and Requirements of Small Satellites Seeking Low-Cost and Fast-Delivery, Published in January 2018, 83 pages. Soft cover. Objectives of this report are to examine the definitions of small satellites, identify the requirements every satellite should follow regardless of its size or development philosophy and then reflect some of the findings to the draft of ISO-20991, “Space Systems - Requirements for Small Spacecraft”.

Long-term Space Propellant Depot

B047
Long-term Space Propellant Depot, published in January 2018, 106 pages. Soft cover. The adoption of propellant depots in space is being investigated since years as a key enabler of new space missions, promising to have an important impact on the design and operations of future space transportation systems, space exploration missions, and commercial space operations.

Space Mineral Resources – A Global Assessment of the Challenges and Opportunities

B045
Space Mineral Resources – A Global Assessment of the Challenges and Opportunities, published in 2015, 392 pages. The exploitation of space mineral resources is becoming a commercial space endeavor for the benefit of humanity and profit. In 2012, the IAA approved a broad study of the technology, economics, legal and policy aspects of identifying, obtaining, and using these resources. In 2013 and 2014, multiple commercial ventures announced their intensions to initiate human (and robotic) missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids.

The Energetic Particle Radiation Hazard en route to and at Mars

B042
The Energetic Particle Radiation Hazard en route to and at Mars, published in March 2017, 403 pages. We understand today that the potential health hazard posed to crews in deep space due to energetic particle radiation is a matter of even greater complexity than was recognized in earlier times. Scientists, Engineers and Biologists worldwide are presently investigating, in many interdisciplinary communities the problems concerned using new avenues of approach, backed up by powerful diagnostic tools, in an attempt to find a viable solution.
