For the second consecutive year, the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) awarded “Glue Technologies for Space Systems Panel”, chaired by prof. Claudio Sacchi, as the “IEEE AESS Best Technical Panel of the year".
The prize is given to recognize an AESS Technical Panel whose performance is particularly noteworthy during the previous year in supporting AESS. The award is given on the basis of noteworthy performance in one or more categories:
a) leadership and/or participation in AESS conferences,
b) generation and maintenance of IEEE Standards,
c) generating and reviewing technical papers in their fields of interest, d) providing support and technical guidance in potential new areas of applications in their fields of interest.
Prof. Sacchi will be recognized at the 2022 IEEE Aerospace Conference in Big Sky, USA at an Awards Presentation on 10 March 2022.
The Glue Technologies for Space Systems Panel is focused on those technologies that constitute the necessary common platform for the innovative systems based on Space components (satellites, UAV, rovers, landers, orbiters, etc.) that will be deployed in the near future in various application fields (satellite and aerospace communications, interplanetary communications, planet exploration, Internet of Space Things).
The Panel introduces the concept of “glue technology” that, like in global enterprises, integrates the subsidiaries and other producing units, saving their own need of autonomy. In this panel, rather than “technologies”, they might deal with “technological tools” that will be used (and reused) in different and heterogeneous sectors of Space Science and Engineering. The most important “glue” in Space ICT is the exchange of data among different entities that should work in a seamless networked manner. But, also data and signal processing constitutes another form of “glue” that is essential to connect the remote processing machines to the human comprehension and investigation of what happens in the Space.
