Announcement: Due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19, this event has now become online only and will be virtual

SMi Group are proud to announce that the 15th annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference Virtual Conference will take place on the 3rd and 4th September 2020.

As the leading conference in Europe dedicated to space surveillance, this year’s forum will once again bring together key stakeholders across the military, government and industry sectors to discuss how we build a collaborative approach to space management and Space Situational Awareness (SSA), at a time when the domain is increasingly congested with active satellites along with space debris and junk.

Similarly, as new LEO mega-constellations come online at an increasing rate, avoiding a repeat of the 2009 Iridium crash remains at the forefront of all industry professionals’ minds, as we attempt to ensure that necessary and responsible space exploration and development can continue for years to come.

Key focuses include space debris, space surveillance and tracking (SST), space weather, the impact of new mega-constellations and international partnerships in space.

Featuring 120+ attendees – once again this year’s conference will provide unparalleled chance to meet and greet all the key players in this important domain and remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in the satellite sector.

The SMi Virtual Conference Platform will deliver the following benefits:

• Live and On Demand speaker content: Get access to the latest strategies and case studies from your market place online!
• Network with all the event attendees: Connect, see who’s attending, chat and share contact details with all online delegates, speakers and sponsors
• Exhibit a Virtual Booth: You can pack your customized booth full of documents, videos and even show who is manning the booth during the event and hosting meetings

    13:15 Resiliency and Message Handling Considerations for Effective Space Domain Awareness

    Mr Waqar Zaidi

    Mr Waqar Zaidi, Principal Orbit Analyst, L3Harris
    View Bio

  • Safe, timely, and effective space domain awareness (SDA) requires resilient architecture and a means to exchange data/analytics through a robust message handling system
  • Given an adverse set of conditions, which might otherwise limit the dissemination of critical information for a sudden event (e.g. breakup), SDA resiliency increases the probability of mission success by decreasing periods of reduced capability
  • An SDA message handling system enables the timely passing of relevant information between space agencies, academia and commercial spacecraft operators
  • A major goal for SDA resiliency is to resolve the “big data problem" by properly qualifying space object estimation (that uses multi-phenomenology data) and quantifying its resulting uncertainty
  • Qualifying space object estimation resolves what minimal set of data are required to address a specific critical need and ensure the derived products are produced and disseminated on an operationally favorable timeline

  • The presentation explains the contribution of Fraunhofer FHR to the German national SSA capabilities. Fraunhofer FHR is operating the Tracking and Imaging Radar (TIRA) and developing the German Experimental Space Surveillance and Tracking Radar (GESTRA), both of which are an essential part of German military and civil SSA programmes. TIRA provides data about not only highly precise orbital elements of a space object but also its size, shape, orientation and attitude motion through high-resolution imaging, which makes it suitable for military reconnaissance applications. GESTRA is currently the most important development project of a new German SSA sensor, commissioned by the DLR Space Administration. GESTRA is a phased array or electronic scanning radar system for continuous and wide-space detection, tracking and measurement. It will be delivered to and operated by the German Space Situational Awareness Centre (GSSAC) to generate an independent catalogue of space objects and debris in the near-Earth environment.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
