The Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS) is an industry-led initiative with initial seed funding provided by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that aims to leverage best practices from government and industry to research, develop, and publish non-binding, consensus-derived technical and operations standards for OOS and RPO. These standards would provide the foundation for a new commercial repertoire of robust space-based capabilities and a future in-space economy.
Vision: Servicing empowering a robust space economy
Mission: Develop industry-led standards and guide international policies for servicing that contribute to a sustainable, safe, and diverse space economy.
CONFERS is open to participation by private sector stakeholders in the international satellite servicing community. All companies and academic institutions developing, operating, insuring, and purchasing OOS and RPO capabilities are encouraged to join and contribute their experience and expertise.
