Cooperations with space agencies in the world

The Space Tracking and Communications Center implements a variety of international cooperations with other space agencies to promote cross-support capability and interoperability in space missions.
SpaceOps

SpaceOps

SpaceOps (International Conference on Space Operations) is the biennial international symposium, which has been held cooperatively by major space agencies since 1990, for discussing state-of-the-art operations principles, methods, technologies, tools, and experiences in the field of space mission operations and ground data systems. Having hosted SpaceOps98 at Tokyo in 1998, JAXA is actively participating in the SpaceOps organization with other members including NASA, ESA, CNES, DLR, ASI, CSA, INPE, KARI, and NOAA. SpaceOps2014 is hosted by JPL at Pasadena, CA in the United States in May.

IOP・IOAG

IOP・IOAG

IOP (Interoperability Plenary) is the senior management group of world space agencies' space tracking and mission operations divisions to address joint space communications and navigation and to broaden compatibility, cross-support capability, and interoperability in space communications and navigation. IOAG (Interagency Operations Advisory Group), formed under IOP, identifies common needs across multiple space agencies and coordinates space communications policy, high-level procedures, technical interfaces, in order to achieve cross-support across the international space community and to foster space communications and navigation interoperability. JAXA participates in IOP and IOAG with NASA, ESA, CNES, DLR, ASI, CSA, RFSA, KARI, and UKSA.

CCSDS

CCSDS

CCSDS (Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems) was formed in 1982 by major space agencies of the world to provide a forum for discussion of common problems in the development and operation of space data systems. Since its establishment, it has been actively developing various recommendations for data- and information-systems standards to promote interoperability and cross-support capability among space agencies, and to enable multi-agency spaceflight collaborations and new capability realization for future missions. Since its birth, JAXA has been participating in CCSDS, which is now composed of 11 member agencies, 29 observer agencies, and 151 industrial associates.
