The global space sector is undergoing a major transformation. With clear direction moving towards an ecosystem comprised of a combination of public and private actors, significant advancements are being made. As the world looks towards landing the next human on the Moon, the global space sector is further seeking to solve humanitys global challenges utilizing space-based technologies. However, this presents unique challenges in ensuring that space application benefits truly remain and are improved for all humankind.
Based on the assessment of space capabilities and infrastructures, nations can be characterized by a maturity level. Current aspiring space nations are immature compared to those considered emerging, who are in turn further eclipsed by the strong space heritage of developed nations. As such, there is a strong need for the provision of a framework to guide the establishment of a sustainable and prosperous space ecosystem in aspiring and emerging space nations. This white paper provides recommendations for the establishment of a space innovation ecosystem, by addressing the following objectives:
1. Utilizing case studies to examine developed, emerging and aspiring space ecosystems for the identification of factors that contribute to their success. 2. Providing recommendations derived from both the public and the private sector experiences, which can be practically implemented to catalyze or grow a space innovation ecosystem at any stage of development. 3. Addressing foreseen challenges including ethical considerations, and limitations with respect to resources and technical strengths required for capability creation in developing, emerging, and aspiring nations.
Through these objectives, detailed analysis of current successful approaches and innovative recommendations have been provided.
