SESSION 4: BASE INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIREMENTS

Thursday 25 April

Given the limited experience of emerging countries in space science and technology, the full scope of the infrastructure requirements is not always understood and appreciated. Also, the appropriate use of such infrastructure also goes hand in glove with the infrastructure itself. These considerations are important to ensure that national space programs are both efficient and effective. The Session focus will be on:

  1. Identifying the base infrastructure required for operationalising efficient and effective national space programs,
  2. Appreciating how to develop the appropriate skills and expertise required for the efficient operations of space infrastructure.
