Project Description

Increased density of space traffic is driving reflections on regulatory frameworks. Space
Traffic Management (STM) is one of the emerging ideas, but also implementation of the
Cape Town convention on space assets is presently discussed. UNIDROIT has taken the
initiative to propose a legal framework for space assets in accordance with the latter
convention. Although the principle has been welcomed by many parties, in particular the
space operators have expressed individual reservations. The purpose of this study was to
seek for a common view on such reservations on the basis of a questionnaire. In view of
the highly specialised topic, a well-distributed but restricted group of respondents was
approached with this questionnaire. Although statistically this leads to a rather limited
database, on the other hand it guarantees well-informed feedback.
