SpaceOps (also referred to as the International Committee on Technical Interchange for Space Mission Operations and Ground Data Systems) is an international committee organisation formed in 1992 to "promote and maintain an international community of space operations experts".[2][3]

Currently, thirteen space agencies are members of the organization.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10] SpaceOps also has non-space agency members from academia[11] and industry.[12]


SpaceOps Organization has held fifteen biennial conferences hosted by various countries around the world.[3] These international fora have discussed operations principles, methods, cross-support [13] and tools, management and technical interchange.


In 2004, the AIAA Space Operations and Support Technical Committee (SOSTC)[14] partnered with the SpaceOps Organization [15] to publish the Journal of Space Operations & Communicator,[16] a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to spaceflight operations and ground support.

Awards program

Through its awards program,[17] the SpaceOps Organization recognizes outstanding achievement by individuals and teams in the space operations field. The “International SpaceOps Exceptional Achievement Medal".[18] award recognizes an individual who has distinguished himself or herself in the field of space operations and support.
