Comments Requested on Proposed Definition of Basic SSA Services
Today, the Office of Space Commerce (OSC) published a request for information (RFI) requesting additional input from interested parties on OSC’s currently planned scope of basic safety services to be provided via the Traffic Coordination System for Space (TraCSS) program. This input will inform OSC’s development of capabilities to share space situational awareness (SSA) data, information and services to space operators and the public.
The RFI lists 23 different types of SSA services and states whether or not each one will be included in the “free of fee” service that OSC intends to provide through TraCSS to any satellite owner/operator willing to accept the tenets of participation.
OSC invites the public to provide input on the scope of proposed basic SSA safety services, impacts of the proposed basic SSA safety services on commercial SSA providers, tenets of participation and receipt of basic SSA safety services, and general feedback.
Responses are due February 27, 2023.
