Description

The Canadian Space Commerce Association (CSCA), Canada’s national association for the space sector, is organizing another groundbreaking Canadian SmallSat Symposium. The 2018 Symposium will be held in Toronto over three days on February 13-14-15, 2018. Features include a robust program with workshops, welcome reception, breakfast, coffee breaks, luncheons, panels, plenary sessions, keynote presentations, the exhibitor hall, venture meetings, over 90 speakers and more.

SMALL SATELLITES, RESPONSIBLE REVOLUTION

In June 2016 the Committee On the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) agreed to the first set of guidelines for the long-term sustainability of outer space activities ( A/71/20, Annex). As the Committee continues its work on the second set of guidelines, the Canadian SmallSat Symposium 2017 is focused on Space Sustainability, in advance of COPUOS’ presentation to the United Nations General Assembly in 2018.

SmallSats are a key factor in space sustainably, both in providing solutions and potentially contributing to the problem. As more are actively using space for security and socio-economic benefits crowding of physical orbital locations and broadcasting interference become a greater concern. The current traffic in LEO and the thousands of smallsats slated for deployment, heighten the propensity for collision and challenge the sustainability space.

SmallSats are also a mitigating factor in managing Earth’s sustainability issues. Many indicators necessary for environmental observation must be monitored from space, where SmallSats are agile enough to bear the burden. The demand and opportunity to put SmallSat’s in orbit is continuing to grow, especially at the micro and nano scale.

To position Canada to provide solutions and technologies to mitigate this concern, the CSCA is bringing together stakeholders from across the country and inviting international participation to provide a forum for discussion and collaboration.
