Second Regulator Dialogue on Approaches to Licensing of Large Constellations

When: Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Time: 0900-1300 CEST

Where: Paris, France 

As increasing numbers of large satellite constellations in Low Earth Orbit  are planned and launched, the existing capacity of the regulatory framework and processes for managing these constellations in a safe and sustainable manner is stressed.  Large LEO constellations pose a number of unique challenges for regulatory processes that are primarily designed to administer spectrum access, coordination, and interference matters. This workshop, held on the margins of the International Astronautical Congress in Paris, was the second workshop SWF has hosted on this topic in 2022. It brought together national regulators from multiple countries (along with technical experts) to discuss with each other these challenges, their approaches to licensing large constellations, and potential solutions, with a case focus on the topic of orbital carrying capacity
