The document provides an overview of the space sector and the associated normative context.
In the framework of the National Standardization Strategy 2020-2030, the new edition of the Aerospace Sector Standards Analysis was presented at a workshop organized by ILNAS and the University of Luxembourg on Wednesday 29 June, 2022. The document provides an overview of the space sector and the associated normative context, while encouraging national actors to seize the opportunities offered to them to benefit from standardization, for example by getting actively involved in the standardization process.
This new version of the Aerospace Standards Analysis, which focuses solely on the space sector (excluding aeronautics), presents the main European and international technical standardization committees that may be of interest to national space experts. They are spread out across the following five categories:
- Solely dedicated to the space sector, with a wide range of applications ;
- Telecommunications ;
- Earth Observation ;
- Technical areas ;
- Systems Engineering, Quality, Safety and Management Processes.
The document also provides an overview of the current context of the space sector, its challenges, and the main actors involved at international, European and national levels, in particular with regard to technical standardization activities.
The content of this deliverable was presented at the “Space & Technical Standardization” workshop organized by ILNAS and the University of Luxembourg on Wednesday 29 June, 2022 on the Belval Campus, in the presence of national stakeholders.
The event began with a talk by Mr. Jérôme Hoerold (Head of the National Standards Body (OLN), a department of ILNAS), who presented the strategic activities of ILNAS in the field of standardization and went on with the presentation of the Luxembourg Aerospace Technical Standardization Policy 2021-2025. Mr. Clément Huber (aerospace and standardization at ANEC GIE) then gave an overview of the new edition of the Aerospace Standards Analysis.
The second part of the event, introduced by Dr. Grégoire Danoy (research scientist, University of Luxembourg) and Dr. Mohammed Alswaitti (postdoctoral researcher, University of Luxembourg), was dedicated to the research program “Technical Standardization for Trustworthy ICT, Aerospace, and Construction” (2021-2024), resulting from the partnership between ILNAS and the University of Luxembourg, via its Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability, and Trust (SnT). The program aims to bring together technical standardization and scientific research. One of the PhD students within the program, Ms. Maria Hartmann (PhD student, University of Luxembourg), then detailed her research project “Swarms of nano satellites”. Finally, Professor Pascal Bouvry (Chargé de mission auprès du recteur, University of Luxembourg) presented the research and teaching objectives of standardization currently pursued by his team. The morning ended with a networking lunch to pursue the discussions initiated during the presentations.
Within the framework of the Luxembourg Aerospace Technical Standardization Policy 2021-2025, ILNAS and ANEC GIE are at the disposal of the national actors of the sector to accompany them in their standardization developments.
