2019 - Space in a Networked World

Access to space technology has changed dramatically in the past 10 years. Traditionally, access to space capabilities required dedicated receivers and significant investment. This has changed with the advent of new information technologies that incorporate and disseminate the benefits of space directly to users.  This new seamless delivery of space capabilities, from navigation and position to data flows, means that is difficult to distinguish space capabilities from other information infrastructures. This also means that the legal structures developed to govern space technologies are being forced into contact with a variety of other legal structures.  As new markets, innovative technologies, and increased data access emerge, legal questions abound as the lex specialis of space accommodates these trends.  This symposium will investigate how traditional space law is developing as space technology enters the daily lives of individuals everywhere.
