IPNSIG will be hosting a workshop to discuss Architecture and Governance of the Interplanetary Network.

As we look around the globe, we are witnessing a significant thrust in space exploration. We are on the cusp of an exciting re-entry into human and robotic space exploration and commercialization, and the deployment of an Interplanetary Network is the key to enable such efforts.  

Today, there are several initiatives including the Government, Space Agencies and the private sector that expand communication capabilities off the planet, to the Moon, Mars and beyond.  Such capabilities will provide significant opportunities to  explore, gain new knowledge, and expand more businesses in Space. They all bring benefit back to Earth.

As the venture of expanding the Interplanetary Network are remarkable steps for humanity, it is also the time to discuss how a “Common Interplanetary Network Infrastructure” could be realized, which entails the need of Governance – a management structure to support the operation of the infrastructure itself.

The Architecture and Governance Working Group (AWG) has tackled these important subjects by reflecting on the lessons learned from the Internet’s evolution and from the remarkable insights provided by our past Academy speakers.

We are happy to share our progress within AWG and are looking forward to some lively discussions. We hope to see you all soon!

More information, including a speaker bio and photo page will be published soon.
