Post 2030-agenda and the role of space : the UN 2030 goals and their further evolution beyond 2030 for sustainable development / Froehlich A (Editor); European Space Policy Institute (Author). - [S.l.] : SpringerWienNewYork, 2018. - 1 online resource (xiii, 119 p.): col. ill. .
"This book provides a deep insight to which extent further improvement should be envisaged to ensure and improve the sustainable development beyond 2030 (the Sustainable Development Goals is a set of 17 global goals with 169 associated targets which the state community adopted in 2015). As the world, its environment, economy and society is getting more and more technical advanced, it is of high interest to analyze how space and its various applications can support this development. Once the Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will be achieved new challenges are waiting. The analysis takes into account a proactive use of artificial intelligence for the development based on space infrastructure. Another important aspect revolves around the economic development which asks for further analysis of the cryptocurrencies relationship with space applications and how to use space based cryptocurrencies for development. Environment-wise the challenges for a sustainable development on Earth i.e. water supply, but also in outer space are requested ensuring a sustainable exploration and exploitation of space and its orbital resources. The book also highlights possible contributions of the post-2030 space industry to global economic development based on satellite technology and the enlargement of the scope of application of satellite data in administration and Justice to ensure development of effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels to promote growth, stability and security and peace on global level"--Back cover.
This report covers the findings of the evaluation of sub-program 1.2.3. Human Space Missions and Support and sub-sub-program 188.8.131.52. International Space Station Utilization (hereinafter called the program), implemented by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) for the period from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2018.
The evaluation covers the relevance, performance, efficiency and comparative gender-based analysis plus(GBA+) of Human space missions and ISS Utilization (sub-program 1.2.3 and sub-sub-program 184.108.40.206), and various data collection methods were used: a comparative study and review of the literature, document review, 52 interviews, four case studies and an internal data analysis.

A space policy primer : key concepts, issues, and actors / Byrne J (Author); Dickey R (Author); Gleason M (Author). - United States : The Aerospace Corporation, 2021. - 1 online resource (49 p.): col. ill. .
The purpose of this primer has been to provide some key concepts and common nomenclature for thinking about space, provide an overview of international space law, and outline the key questions confronting the United States and other countries today. It also has provided a brief sketch of how the U.S. government is organized to address these difficult space policy questions and touched upon the rationales for investing in space activities. While this primer by no means touched upon every important concept, rationale, actor, or issue, it will hopefully make a small contribution to the discussion on how the United States, and the world, moves ahead in space.
Small satellites in the emerging space environment : implications for U.S. national security-related space plans and programs / Kosiak S (Author). - Washington, D.C. : Center for a New American Security, 2019. - 1 online resource (30 p.): .
In coming years, constellations composed of large numbers of small, less complex, and less costly satellites are likely to become progressively more cost-effective relative to constellations made up of small numbers of large, more complex, and more expensive satellites. Taken together, recent and projected trends in commercial constellation design, miniaturization, launch costs, and anti-satellite capabilities fall short of supporting a dramatic near-term reorientation of U.S. space capabilities. However, those trends do suggest that now is an appropriate time for the U.S. military and intelligence community to at least modestly increase their investment in small satellite capabilitiesboth as a hedge and to create options.
"On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty this book gives a first insight into where the next generation considers room for further improvement of the Outer Space Treaty in order to cope with upcoming aspects such as providing solutions for the emerging commercial, economic, environmental and social questions. At the time of the adoption of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967 the purpose of this treaty was to avoid conflicting military situations in space. However, 50 years later the Outer Space Treaty is in demand to meet the ever increasing space activities and the different actors involved such as the rise of the private sector players"--Back cover.
This book provides a detailed analysis on the history and development of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) and the Conference on Disarmament (CD) and the coordination and cooperation between these two fora. Furthermore, it discusses the future challenges that these fora will have to deal with and conclude in which way the current system can change to cope with the evolution of space matters. This is necessary for the proper discussion of space matters because these matters cannot simply be divided between military and non-military, but are interrelated.
The contributions in this volume, reflecting some of the best writing in each area by American international legal scholars, cover the law of the sea, the law of outer space, and the law of Antarctica. While each is a discrete subject area, they have a shared thread of encompassing "common" areas of the oceans, space and the Antarctic continent. From Jessup's important 1927 piece on Maritime Jurisdiction to contemporary writings on outer space law and the evolution of the Antarctic Treaty, Moore compiles a comprehensive collection of influential American scholarship spanning more than 80 years on the world's shared resources, often revealing the importance of United States foreign policy in the development of each of these areas. Brought together by an Introduction by the Editor, this volume serves as the definitive resource for the American contribution to international law and common resources.
