The following “living” interactive reference is meant to provide a selection of the accepted and SpaceOps Conference inovative papers since 2006 (including SpaceOps Conference "Best Papers") by collecting space operations specific definitions (“key-words”) reflecting the current understanding and “state-of-the-art” interpretations and also by indicating new develpments and trends. A retrieval of the appropriate papers from the AIAA SpaceOps Archive is facilitated with the appropriate direct links.
The official SpaceOps/AIAA Archive covering the SpaceOps Conferences starting with the year 2002 can be accessed directly.
The electronic archiving of Conference papers started in 1996 (SpaceOps1996 Conference in Munich), some of the papers are still available on DLR's SpaceOps1996 Electronic Publishing System (EPS).


The available key-word definitons can be "browsed" by clicking the approrpate alphabetical ordered page on the left hand side.

Everybody is invited to improve this “wikipedia-style”- reference for SpaceOps papers.
