On October 19, 2021, the members of Subcommittee 14 of ISO TC 20 within the framework of the Working Group 3 (WG3) appointed Raimondo Cinquemani, Safety and Compliant Engineer in EuroUSC Italy, national expert member for the Space Traffic Coordination (STC).
The Subcommittee 14 deals with the safety assessment in all the coordination phases of Space Traffic, starting from the pre-launch phase, up to the mission disposal phase. Its purpose is to release standards concerning protocols and operational requirements associated with the Space Traffic Coordination, in order to ensure flight safety and mitigate the risk of collision. The Committee is currently engaged in the development of a standard which imposes the requirements of an STC system and facilitates the provision of highly available, rapid, complete and sufficiently accurate services to support the safety, the efficiency and the sustainability of the Space Traffic.
«It is a great honour for me to receive this appointment which, moreover, has never been recognized to an Italian member.» Raimondo Cinquemani affirmed «I will support the development of this standard by providing the proper knowledge learned in terms of safety. This Subcommittee will make it possible to create a first path for the management of the space operations, bridging the gaps related to the regulatory requirements.»
