Space Security, Safety, and Sustainability

Understanding security, technology, and policy in government and commercial space programs


With respect to courses: We aim to offer a steady roster of courses, with an eventual target of two per semester.  Some may be “regular” full-semester courses, others may be “short courses” on the model of the Spring 2019 sustainable orbital activities course.  Additional topics may include one focused on the national security and international relations aspects of orbital activity.   These may be taught be current faculty, adjunct faculty, or visiting faculty or fellows.

Speakers and the STM Conference

The Space Security, Safety, and Sustainability program brings outstanding speakers to campus, both on a one-off basis and as part of an annual conference.

The Space Traffic Management (STM) conference is the keynote conference affiliated with the Strauss SSSS program. This is another available platform for student scholarship and faculty-supervised research.
