    IAC-22 — 73rd International Astronautical Congress

    B3. IAF HUMAN SPACEFLIGHT SYMPOSIUM

    The symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), invites papers on all aspects of on-going and planned human spaceflight including the design, development, operations, utilization and future plans of space missions involving humans. The scope covers past, present and planned space missions and programmes in LEO and beyond, both governmental and private. The Human Spaceflight Symposium will also feature discussions on preparations for the launch of new human spaceflight capabilities and collaborative efforts of human and robotic systems and technologies.

    B3.1. Governmental Human Spaceflight Programmes (Overview)

    The session provides the forum for updates and annual “Overview” presentations on present and evolving governmental Human Spaceflight programmes. Each year, the session will focus on specific themes dealing with human spaceflight exploration. These will be selected by the session chairs based on the received abstracts. The session will accept manuscripts from any organization (agencies, industries, research centers, academia, etc.) dealing with international, Governmental human space programmes initiatives. The range of topic to be addressed in this session include mission to low Earth orbit (LEO) and those beyond Earth orbit (BEO) and include orbital systems, crew and cargo transportation systems, as well as surface systems and operations on the Moon. The format of the session (e.g. panel, pitching presentations, keynote speech) will be a result of such a selection.

    B3.2. Commercial Human Spaceflight Programmes

    This session provides a forum for papers describing commercial human orbital and sub-orbital endeavours including orbital space stations, commercial transportation systems, services, operation and uses, as well as human-tended space station platforms. This session also accepts papers on commercial human spaceflight activities in cis-lunar space and lunar surface operations. Topics include the status of development, testing, operations and utilization; the architecture and performance of various systems; orbital infrastructure development; commercial operations and utilization projects, market and economic development activity, and other pertinent areas of commercial human spaceflight. Examples of activity include but are not limited to commercial utilization and other commercial activity on the International Space Station, international capability for commercial transportation, activities planned for future human spaceflight platforms either in low Earth orbit (LEO) or beyond Earth orbit (BEO) and other applications are appropriate for this session.

    B3.3. Utilization & Exploitation of Human Spaceflight Systems

    This session addresses the utilization and exploitation of space stations, spacecraft, and surface systems and provides the opportunity to discuss achievements, plans and outlooks. Topics for discussion include proposed or available payload facilities, experiments, research, manufacturing, and other on-orbit and surface activity and its related planning, accommodation, and implementation. Additional items appropriate for discussion include scientific and industrial utilization applications and engineering research and technology demonstrations, as well as uses of space stations (ie. International Space Station and Chinese Space Station Tjangong) and other crewed vehicles as test beds for exploration. We also invite papers on challenges for future sustainability of human spaceflight which may be investigated through utilization of on-orbit crew and crewed platforms, and includes those in cis-lunar space and on the surface of the Moon. These may include investigation of in-situ resources and other potential economic and technological enablers, results of advanced manufacturing tests and demonstrations, and reduction and mitigation of risks.

    B3.5. Astronaut Training, Accommodation, and Operations in Space

    This session begins with an Astronaut Roundtable where an international group of astronauts from the various programmes will discuss their experiences in a roundtable format. There will be an extended Question and Answer period of interaction with the audience. This session concentrates on all aspects of spaceflight that are unique to the presence of astronauts. It encompasses astronaut activities such as selection, training, workload management, and task division between flight and ground segments. It includes spacecraft systems and robotic tools; interfaces; international command, control and communications; payloads; research; and utilization. It addresses the unique spacecraft systems required to safely accommodate astronauts during intravehicular and extravehicular activities. The session includes astronaut pre-mission, mission, and post-mission support of technological and scientific space-based research and utilization of human space complexes and the space environment.

    B3.6-A5.3. Human and Robotic Partnerships in Exploration - Joint session of the IAF Human Spaceflight and IAF Exploration Symposia

    This session seeks papers on new systems and technologies for current human spaceflight and exploration programmes, and the role of human and robotic partnerships in areas such as onboard robotic assistants, habitat / infrastructure construction support, human mobility support systems (e.g. EVA mobility aids, rovers); and robotic precursor activities to human spaceflights for test, validation, and demonstration of systems. This session also welcomes papers considering how the roles of humans, machines and intelligent systems are likely to evolve in the coming years and the corresponding impact on complex mission design, implementation, and operations.
