Due to the generous sponsorship from the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Florida (UF) invites you to attend the third International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Conference on Space Situational Awareness (ICSSA). The ICSSA will be hosted at GMV, Madrid, Spain, from September 13-15, 2021. The foremost purpose of Space Situational Awareness (SSA) is to provide decision-making processes with a quantifiable and timely body of evidence (predictive/imminent/forensic) of behavior(s) attributable to specific space domain threats and hazards. The conference will cover broad-ranging technical and policy-related aspects associated with the topic of SSA. Over the past two decades, SSA has evolved into a high-impact, multidisciplinary field of research. The magnitude and complexity of its constituent lines of inquiry are growing at a rapid pace, driven by the increasing number of objects of interest, including resident space objects: RSOs (a collective term for active spacecraft and space debris) as well as near-Earth objects: NEOs (comets and asteroids in Earth’s vicinity).
