07.10.2018

PSSI took part in the 69th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) held this year on October 1-5, 2018, in Bremen, Germany. The theme of this year’s Congress was “IAC2018 – Involving Eveyone“ (more information about IAC 2018 available here). PSSI contributed with a lecture and two papers. Dr. Martina Šmuclerová, PSSI Senior Fellow, delivered a lecture (and an article) on October 3 at the 61st IISL Colloquium on the Law of Outer Space on the topic “Legal Perspectives for the Further Development of the Five United Nations Treaties on Outer Space in Light of Rising Multistakeholderism“. Dr. Smuclerova presented the legal modes concerning how international space law can be updated and developed with and without the revision of the UN Space Treaties (PPT presentation available here). PSSI also presented a paper entitled “Europe’s Management of Space Hybrid Threats“ in session D5.4 entitled “Cybersecurity Threats to Space Missions and Countermeasures to Address Them“. It argued that to build a resilient space architecture in Europe, hybrid operations, including those stemming from cyber and economic and financial (E&F) predations, need to be integrated into the broader security architectures of NATO and EU member states.
