Steganov G.B., Kargu D.L., Malenin E.N., Yanguzov A.V. - A method for estimating the thermal regime of solar panels when performing angular turns of the earth remote sensing spacecraft. pp. 1-8


Abstract: The results of modeling the thermal operation of solar panels (PSB) of the Earth remote sensing spacecraft (ERS) when moving in a circular orbit are presented. Modeling of the thermal regime is carried out for two groups of photovoltaic converters (FEP). FEP are conventionally divided into groups depending on the strength of the influence of different heat fluxes characteristic of the movement of the spacecraft in a circular orbit. Analytical expressions for the heat balance equation of the PSB and the results of numerical calculations at the end of the active life (SAC) are given. In this work, methods of deduction, induction, analysis, modeling, formalization, experiment, as well as statistical method, system and structural-functional method were used. The presented model for calculating the temperature of the solar panel of the remote sensing spacecraft is a set of mathematical expressions that allow at any time of the simulated
Space Policy
Yanik A.A. - Problems of assessment of social and economic impacts from space technologies development (European experience) pp. 9-19


Abstract: The papers analyses problems related to monitoring and evaluating social and economic impacts arising from the development of the space economy and, in particular, space technologies. Using the best practice of the European Space Agency, various approaches to creating evaluation systems are considered. Special attention is paid to the Copernicus Program, first of all, to the ways to identify, measure, and assess the benefits for the economy and society resulting from its implementation.The author shows that interdisciplinary approaches are essential for solving theoretical and practical problems related to obtaining reliable data for decision-makers in space technologies investments. Also, the formation of analytical skills in identifying social impacts is necessary for experts who realize the assessment procedures.
Kolczynski P. - The new European Union space policy in order to maintain Europes position among space leaders pp. 20-31


Abstract: This paper analyzes the current EU space strategy and confronts it with nowadays global challenges in the space sector. The ultimate aim of it is to recommend a well-adjusted space policy for the European Commission for assuring effective and sustainable exploration and use of outer space for the benefit of all EU members. In order to craft the most efficient space policy, the uniqueness of Europes space sector is studied. This paper argues that the EU space policy has to focus on guaranteeing European autonomy in access and use of outer space. It also aims to extensively analyze the challenges and opportunities related to dynamic development of private space sectors activities. It emphasizes the significance of symbiotic cooperation between public institutions and private companies with regard to mutual benefits. The paper concludes that it is a right time for the European Union to build a bold and prospective space policy.
Space Law
Popova S.M. - Impact of needs of space economy development on the legal regulation (a case study of the Luxembourg initiative pp. 32-46


Abstract: The article presents the results obtained within the framework of the research program for novelties of modern space law that arise in connection with the needs of the space economy development. Based on the analysis of the effects of the Luxembourg initiative (February 2016 till December 2019), the author investigates possible consequences for the system of international space law. The growing global interest in replicating the experience of Luxembourg for creating "legal offshore" to stimulate new types of space activities is noticed.The facts show that implementation of the initiative, supported by the tools of "soft power," "soft law," investments, and other technologies, helps to expand the "window of discourse" in matters of space resources private using. This process can cause a sudden change in the rules of the competitive game in the global space market. It is necessary to monitor this kind of "disruptive" political and legal innovations since rapid changes in the global space economy and international law directly affect the interests of the Russian Federation.
Islam M.S. - The Sustainable Use of Outer Space: Complications and Legal Challenges to the Peaceful Uses and Benefit of Humankind pp. 47-63


Abstract: All over the world space applications are considered as vital tools for carrying development in respect of social, economic and environment. The major space faring country grows their economy, science, technology, security through the use of space. Predominantly, events for economic growth through space exploration have considered noteworthy in the international arena. An uninterrupted increase of space activities indicates that space law and policies have become significant for a large number of countries. However, increasing the space faring nations, commercialization by the public, private entities and privation of political willingness of influential countries also denote the new concern to the peaceful use of space, maintaining space safety, security and sustainability. The existing legal protection towards the peaceful and sustainable uses of space is not measured satisfactorily well-organized and competent. Particularly, the issue of commercialization of space is not well agreed. The goal of this paper is to examine the shortcomings of present regimes and legal challenges to the sustainable use of space with identifying that there is an urgent necessity for effective and more comprehensive regime not just at the international level, but also at the national level.
