What if internet by satellite were to lead to congestion in orbit?

05-02-2020

American Starlink project aims to bring high speed internet access across the globe by 2021. It’s certainly a mission in the sky! But how will Elon Musk’s plans to deploy this mega constellation of satellites impact on European citizens?

EU space policy: Industry, security and defence

14-11-2016

Autonomous space capabilities play a key role for in enhancing situational awareness, response to complex crises (natural disasters), management of natural resources (water, forests), delivery of services (health, energy, transport, communication, weather forecasting), and national security. With an increasing number of countries gaining access to outer space, the European Commission adopted a 'Space Strategy for Europe' in October 2016. This publication updates an 'at a glance' note from June 2016 ...

Earth observation satellite data for commercial purposes: Initial Appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

12-02-2015

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Directive on the dissemination of Earth observation satellite data for commercial purposes. Overall, the impression is that the IA has made a genuine attempt to present what it perceives to be the problems which need addressing and to define the objectives of the initiative and the progress indicators accordingly.

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Directive on the dissemination of Earth observation satellite data for commercial purposes. Overall, the impression is that the IA has made a genuine attempt to present what it perceives to be the problems which need addressing and to define the objectives of the initiative and the progress indicators accordingly. The outcome of the first stakeholder consultation, even if rather limited, is clearly presented and appears to have been integrated into the analysis, with a transparent presentation of the stakeholders' views throughout. Nevertheless, the IA has a number of shortcomings and is, at best, incomplete. It remains to be seen to what extent the supplementary impact assessment work requested by Council responds to the concerns that have been expressed and help to complete some of the weaker areas identified. This note is prepared for the Committees on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) and Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) of the European Parliament.

Reproaches Follow North Korea's 'Successful' Launch of a Dysfunctional Satellite

07-01-2013

The launch followed an unsuccessful attempt to propel the same sort of satellite into orbit in April. Many foreign governments consider the exercise a test of the country's ability to launch long-range missiles. The country has gradually increased the range of its missiles. The UN has called on North Korea to suspend its ballistic missile system. North Korea's technology is mostly borrowed and largely outdated. The satellite launched into orbit appears to outside observers not to be functional... ...

The launch followed an unsuccessful attempt to propel the same sort of satellite into orbit in April. Many foreign governments consider the exercise a test of the country's ability to launch long-range missiles. The country has gradually increased the range of its missiles. The UN has called on North Korea to suspend its ballistic missile system. North Korea's technology is mostly borrowed and largely outdated. The satellite launched into orbit appears to outside observers not to be functional... at least for now. Pyongyang may have felt political and social pressures - in addition to military ones - to launch the rocket. The UN Security Council and various countries condemned the move. Even China expressed 'regret'. This does not mean, however, that Pyongyang will be harshly punished by Beijing, its principal ally and trading partner. But the deeper worry abroad may be the possibility of a burgeoning Asian arms race.

Space Policy and the European Security and Defence Policy

On 14 February 2008 the Policy Department in DG EXPO organised a Workshop on behalf of the Subcommittee on Security and Defence (SEDE). The large participation and interest from within and outside the European Parliament confirmed the usefulness of the Workshop format and event. The Workshop provided an occasion to focus upon a report being developed by the SEDE Chairman Karl von Wogau on ESDP and Space Policy. The substance of the Workshop followed the central themes of the SEDE report and provided an opportunity for the Rapporteur and key Members of the European Parliament to exchange views on technological and policy developments in the European space sector and the relevance and impact on European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). The first part of the workshop focussed upon strategic context and the use of satellites for security purposes. The second part of the workshop focussed more on the European economic and defence industrial framework for developing space assets and in particular on the question of the "Cost of Non-Europe in the field of satellite-based systems". This also provided the occasion for the author of a study commissioned by SEDE to present the key findings. This Workshop Summary provides an overview on the issues raised during the Workshop. It is not intended as a verbatim reproduction of the event. The summary and programme is used as a means to disseminate the Workshop presentations which should be useful to those interested in the details of the presentations as well as those who were unable to attend.
