Challenges Time and Cost of Projects Government as sole source of funding Necessities and short time vision Economic Organizational Management Technical Knowledge Long Term policies Social impact perception
Space Infraestructure Space infrastructure is the backbone that supports and connects satellite space systems for national security applications, disaster management and early warning, connectivity, social benefits, environmental sustainability and scientific and technological research
Space Infraestructure The set of tangible and intangible assets needed for the study, access, exploration, use and exploitation of space –Tangible assets include rockets, launch platforms and systems, suborbital vehicles, satellites and other spacecraft, instrumentation, payloads, ground stations, teleports, receiving antennas, user terminals and other devices for link control. –Intangibles assets include orbital positions and frequencies associated, laws, regulations, technologies, patents, licenses, concessions, trademarks and "know-how”.
Strategy a) National Development Plan b) National Infrastructure Plan c) Proposal of a Early Warning System as part of the space infrastructure for protection of the Mexicans and the natural resources and other public infrastructure.
Recent Developments AEM Board give the approval to request the funding for two EO satellites, one thermal-infrared (MIROS) and one high resolution (better that 1m) Also the PND (National Development Plan) consider the action line for the Early Warning System for Disasters
The disaster management in Mexico Several entities involved –Early Warning –Disaster relief –Remediation Challenges –Communication, coordination, timing information
The BigData-BigNetwork Problem The space infrastructure for a early warning system, needs to develop the following: –National system for storage and data processing for Geomatics, Space and Astrophysicists Information (NSSDAP-DGSAI) –Connectivity –Applications
The NSSDAP-DGSAI A state-of-the-art storage facility (with backup) for a data flow of +1.5Petabytes, probably even more. A data processing facility to produce products for several entities initially part of the Government (Federal, State, Municipal) Connectivity between the main users, initially Federal Ministers.
The satellite Last Mile The connectivity problem needs to address also remote rural areas where satellite is the only available option. New technologies and solutions based on satellite communications will also be needed.
