Space Systems Panel Presentation

The IEEE AESS Technical Panel on SPACE SYSTEMS


The Panel aims at creating a reference point for technical and scientific initiatives related to the space world. Panel members belong to (civil and military) institutions, industry and academia. The promotion and involvement of IEEE and AESS in space activities through the Panel is also aimed.

Areas and Membership

The Panel focus on key-topics related to space systems - such as standardization, system analysis&design, applications, constellations, EHF technologies, integration, dual use - covering three areas:

Area 1        Satellite Communications Systems
Area 2        Space Exploration and International Space Station
Area 3        Space-based Navigation Systems and Synthetic Aperture Radars

Panel is open to all who wish to participate. The only requirement is to be member of IEEE and AESS.


In the frame of the Space Systems Panel, key topics related to space can be highlighted to the scientific and industrial community by the organization and development of the following :

  • Special Issues on Transactions and Journals
  • Sessions at International Conferences
  • Conferences 
  • Workshops
  • Editorial activities
  • Seminars
  • Courses
  • Books
  • Promotion
  • Standardization
