Permanent Committee Overview

The International Academy of Astronautics has created Permanent Committees to perform specific tasks on a continuous basis.

The list of Permanent Committees includes:

  • History Committee
  • SETI Committee
  • Small Satellites Committee
  • Scientific-Legal Liaison Committee
  • Space Debris Committee
IAA Permanent Committee on History

1/ Terms of Reference:

In the wake of the creation of the International Academy of Astronautics on 16 August 1960, a committee on the History of the Development of Rockets and Astronautics was created by Theodor Von Karman in 1961. Its task was to stimulate the preparation of scholarly studies of various aspects of the development of rockets and astronautics in different countries from the earliest times. After disappearing in the frame of the IAA reform in 2000, the History Committee has been re-instated on 13 October 2009. The History Committee is established to pursue activities related to the study of the history of rockets and astronautics. The committee belongs to Commission VI (Space & Society, Culture & Education) of the IAA. The committee is chaired by a member of the IAA. The term of membership for both chairman and vice-chairman is 2 years, in line with the 2-year term of the IAA Board of Trustees. The membership of this committee comes from all sections of the IAA, and also includes other qualified individuals who may not be members of the IAA. The membership term is 2-year renewable.

The History Committee is tasked with various activities:

1/ History of Astronautics Symposium: The History Committee’s crown jewel, a yearly History of Astronautics Symposium is organised in the frame of the IAC. Beginning with a single session in 1967, it progressed to 2 sessions in 1983, 3 sessions in 1995 and 4 sessions in 2002. This last, special session, is often dedicated to the contribution of the local IAC organiser to astronautics, or to a joint session (e.g. with COSPAR), or to a special anniversary (e.g. Sputnik), or to guest speakers. The basic core of the Symposium thus is made of 3 sessions: Memoirs, Organisational histories, Technical & scientific histories. Papers cover the whole range of astronautics, from the XIth century Chinese rockets to matters at least 25 years old.

2/ Proceedings of the History of Astronautics Symposium: One of the only two groups to do so in IAC (with the IISL), the History Committee has been publishing the proceedings of all its Symposium papers, since its beginnings in 1967, an absolutely unique and invaluable source of information for space historians. Each year a member of the committee is tasked with the edition of these papers, published in the American Astronautical Society (AAS) series. A special Book of Abstracts & Index was published in 2009, with all the abstracts of the papers published in the period 1967-2000, together with indices.

3/ Anniversaries: The History Committee is keeping track of astronautics anniversaries, and accordingly proposes any relevant commemoration activities.

4/ Deceased people: The History Committee keeps track of recently deceased people in the field of astronautics.

5/ Personnel/national activities: The History Committee establishes yearly summaries of its members activities, as well as relevant activities in the members home area or country.

6/ Study Groups: Specific IAA Study Groups can be established in the frame of the History Committee.

7/ Other activities: Special visits, dinners, teleconferences, venues of personalities (with press conference) are organised. Diaporamas or film screenings, cultural events (e.g. pyrotechnical performance) should be organised. Current events, joint sessions with other symposia should be organised.

IAA Permanent Committee on Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)

1/ Terms of Reference:

SETI is an acronym for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The primary goal is to examine all aspects of possible future contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, with special reference to international issues and activities. The underlying science of the study of life in the universe includes relevant astrophysical and astronomical phenomena, the nature and distribution of the biogenic elements and compounds, the formation of life-bearing planets, the origin and evolution of biological systems, complex life and intelligence, and the emergence of technological civilizations. Associated missions and technology include planetary science missions designed to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life, the astronomical search for extrasolar planets, and the recovery of possible Martian microfossils on the Earth. The science and technology of SETI itself includes the development of search strategies, and the underlying intellectual foundation, the design, development, construction and operation of telescopes and signal detection systems, studies of their future location in space or on the lunar farside, rejection of radio frequency interference, the archiving of SETI data, and analysis of search results.

The SETI Permanent Committee will also continue to lead in discussions of the implications of detecting extraterrestrial signals: for example, in the areas of philosophy, historical analogs, anthropology, legal, political and institutional issues, sociology, psychology and theology, and interactions with the media and the educational system. All issues concerning possible future transmissions from Earth deliberately intended for ETI will also be included. Continuing collaboration will be sought with the International Institute of Space Law on some of these questions.

In addressing all of the above, the SETI Permanent Committee will seek learned papers for presentation at the SETI sessions of the International Astronautical Congress, publish the best of these papers in Acta Astronautica or elsewhere, generate and conduct, or support special Academy conferences or studies on important topics, and play a proactive role in the continuing study of extraterrestrial life and intelligence. Where appropriate, the SETI Permanent Committee will collaborate also with other committees of the Academy and the Federation, with the Bioastronomy Commission of the International Astronomical Union, and other national and international bodies and societies with an interest in SETI. These terms of reference exclude any consideration of UFO phenomena.
The SETI Permanent Study has four areas of particular concern:
1. Issues of Policy Concerning Communications with Extraterrestrial Intelligence. (Ernst Fasan AUSTRIA)
2. SETI Post-Detection Science and Technology. (Ray Norris AUSTRALIA)
3. Lunar SETI Studies. (Claudio Maccone ITALY)
4. Media and Education. (Roger Malina FRANCE)

IAA Permanent Committee on Small Satellites

1/ Terms of Reference:

It is the intention of the IAA Permanent Committee on Small Satellite Missions to support any activities in connection with small satellite missions, and to bring within the reach of every country the opportunity to operate small satellite missions and utilize the data effectively at low costs, as well as to develop and build application-driven missions. In this context the Committee supports all activities to develop and promote concepts and processes by various user communities to conduct or participate in small satellite missions using small, economical satellites, and associated launches, ground stations, data distributions structures, and space system management approaches. For instance, small satellite missions for Earth observation can easily be tailored to the particular solutions of a country or a group of countries concerning the geography, economical and environmental needs. Novel types of constellations of small satellites are currently being designed that could serve the application needs and economic possibilities of countries and user communities by sharing the contributions and the costs. The use of low-cost satellite missions for planetary exploration will also be considered as well as the use of low-cost satellite missions for educational purposes and for technology demonstration.

The IAA Committee on Small Satellite Missions has the following general goals:
1) Organizing symposia at the International Astronautical Congresses, COSPAR and stand-alone conferences/symposia/workshops.
2) Making presentations in countries and organizations throughout the world as appropriate, especially in developing countries and countries emerging in space activities.
3) Making small satellites an integral part of university science and engineering curricula.
4) Promoting and supporting current and new IAA studies dealing with aspects of small satellite missions.
5) Working together with other professional society groups to expand our knowledge base and contacts, e. g. COSPAR and IAF.
6) Implementing the cooperation with other international organizations having similar goals, e. g., the United Nations, the International Space University, and ISPRS.
In order to further the Committee’s objectives it is intended but not limited to pursue also the following specific goals:
1) Continue the series of Small Satellite Symposia at the International Astronautical Congress
2) Continue the series of bi-annual Symposia on Small Satellites for Earth Observation in Berlin.
3) Continue the series of Symposia on Low-Cost Planetary Missions.

The Committee is based on the experiences gained from the IAA Study Group “Small Satellite Missions for Earth Observation” and the Program Committee “Small Satellites” within IAA Commission IV. The members of this Permanent Committee are the representatives of the IAA Study Groups and Program Committees as well as the respective Technical Director dealing with small satellite mission activities, and the liaison with other international organizations having similar goals. The Committee is also open for all persons interested in using this platform to exchange ideas and experiences according to the scope of the Committee. The IAA Permanent Committee on Small Satellite Missions will report to the respective IAA Commission dealing with small satellite mission subject.
