Overview of space operations and the national airspace system presentation to

Commercial Space in the NAS

  • The President's 2010 National Space Policy highlights the importance of a robust, diverse commercial space transportation industry

  • As the frequency of commercial space launches and reentries increases, equitable access to the National Airspace System (NAS) will be essential to its continued growth

Commercial Space in the NAS

  • FAA is working to develop policy, processes and procedures for safely and efficiently integrating commercial space launch and reentry operations into the NAS

  • Goal: to support mission objectives of commercial launch and reentry operators without adversely affecting the system's performance and capacity

Commercial Space in the NAS

  • Currently, mission-specific strategies are identified and implemented to optimize NAS efficiency and performance during these operations

  • Over time, these approaches are expected to evolve into a collaborative, standardized framework for NAS management

NAS Stakeholder Engagement

  • AST and ATO are looking to the aviation and commercial space transportation industries to support this evolution

  • Short term

    • Participate in a stakeholder forum that provides recommendations for implementation policy and processes based on industry goals and constraints

  • Long term

    • Participate in a stakeholder collaborative process of data sharing and NAS management

Why is This Important Now?

  • The aviation and commercial space industries compete for use of the same limited resource

    • Air traffic growth could rise by more than 90 percent in the next 20 years

    • Commercial space operations could increase by a factor of 10 in just 10 years

  • New policies and processes must be defined to handle demand

    • The aviation and commercial space industries operate differently and deal with different constraints that must be fully considered


Input to these policies and processes

Input to these Policies and Processes

  • The aviation industry is well established and organized and it has been participating in collaborative groups for decades and will continue to participate

  • The space industry must recognize that their participation is vital to ensure their interests are part of the solutions when these policies and processes are developed
