March IPNSIG Academy Webinar

Register now for the March Interplanetary Networking Special Interest Group (IPNSIG) Academy Keynote event!

When humans last visited the lunar surface, the internet did not exist and all communications and navigation functions were under the control of a single country (the United States).

This presentation briefly covers primary governance issues, from numbering conventions and spectrum allocations, to time standards and domain definitions. The issues are broader than those covered by the Internet Engineering Task Force, and builders of the interplanetary internet will have to navigate among multiple organizations, including the United Nations, and Artemis Accord signatories. There are no fundamental barriers, but it is important to think about governance issues early so as to prioritize technical and political resources while avoiding delays and unnecessary frictions.

Dr. Pace currently serves as Director of the Space Policy Institute, Director of the Institute for International Science and Technology Policy and Director of the MA International Science and Technology Policy program at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs.

We invite you to join us for this exciting Keynote event.
