Volume 18 Issue 3
Next Generation Space Operations


From the Editor-in-Chief

Dear Readers,
Journal of Space Operations & Communicator, a quarterly online publication, serves as a forum for those involved in the space operations field to communicate with one another, share ideas and information that improve the way operations are carried out in space. The Journal is a crossdisciplinary scholarly publication designed to advance space communication as a profession and as an academic discipline. The Journal is distributed electronically without charge to users on a global basis. JSOC contains peer-reviewed articles, comments and case notes written by leading scientists, professors, and practitioners in their respective fields of aerospace expertise. The editorial board seeks articles that demonstrate exemplary academic research of emerging trends in space technology and space operations fields.

Many people congregated at conferences, symposia, and workshops last quarter either face-to-face or virtual. The annual Improving Space Operations Workshop 2022 represented such a forum where new experiential and informational accounts of scientists, researchers, startup founders, aerospace company managers were shared from their working visions of “Next Generation Space Operations: Accelerate, Change, Expand Platforms”. I have submitted two papers, one summarizing the workshop and the other analyzing the value of the workshop.

Hopefully, you will find this issue informative and worthwhile reading.
