The Internet of Space (IoS) is a natural progression of the vision to extend Internet access to all members of the human race, whether they are located in land, ocean, urban, or rural areas. To meet this need, there has been a renaissance of interest and investment in space- and suborbital-based high-data-rate communications networks. Since the signal transit times are small enough, many more applications are feasible: the creation of a world wide car-to-car communications network or global sensor & control systems for autonomous vehicles. The Internet of Space (IoS) is ahead of the innovation curve; it is at a very early stage, so focused discussions can make great progress.

Papers featuring innovative work are solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas of the Internet of Space (IoS) hardware and systems:

  • Manufacture and Deployment of Large LEO satellite constellations (1000 to 4000 satellites)
  • Lower-cost alternatives
  • Unmanned Air Systems
  • Terrestrial Systems
  • Cubesat Hardware and Systems
  • Satellite Concepts
  • Small and micro- satellite design
  • Balloons
  • Affordability
  • Orbital Configurations & Operations
  • Radiation Effects
  • Phased Arrays
  • High Data rate Links
  • Geolocation
  • Earth observation
  • Frequency spectrum allocations
  • International Regulations & Standards
  • SIGHT applications of the IoS
