An industry-led initiative that identifies and leverages best practices from government and industry for rendezvous and proximity operations (RPO) and on-orbit satellite servicing (OOS) operations
A multi-stakeholder process that brings together experts from industry, academia, government and the international community to create a foundation for a new commercial repertoire of space-based capabilities

satellites revolves around the Earth

Through collaboration with carefully chosen industry and government space experts and stakeholders, both domestic and international, CONFERS aims to benefit the entire on-orbit servicing industry by building common understanding between developers, operators, customers, investors, insurers, and government policy makers while protecting commercial participants’ financial and strategic interests.  The standards would be broad enough to allow individual companies to pursue their own implementations of these standards to suit their individual businesses, while assuring that the implementations adhere to best practices for operational safety.
