Presentations by Regulators
CSSMA events strive to bring you up to date presentations by government body representatives such as the FCC, NASA, NOAA, etc.
In 2016, a group of smallsat operators and key figures formed the CSSMA. The working group is aimed at helping industry players navigate the various pitfalls often observed when coordinating both nationally and internationally.Learn More

Many commercial nanosatellite operators use radiofrequency spectrum on a "non-exclusive" basis, i.e., the spectrum may be used by other satellite (or terrestrial) operators, including Federal government agencies. The shared use of spectrum involves conducting interference analyses and extensive coordination, most of which must be completed as part of the regulatory licensing process. If you are a current or prospective satellite operator, please join the host committee of the Commercial Satellite Spectrum Management Association (CSSMA).
Join us as we share insights into changes in the regulations and upcoming coordination challenges presented both nationally and internationally.
Whether it is in a formal presentation or informal discussions, there is a wealth of information that can be capitalized on.
Get to know your peers in the industry and plan your coordination accordingly. The more you plan ahead the easier it will be.
Our working group focuses on smallsats (otherwise known as cubesats). That does not mean we are exclusive. Join us regardless of size.
Learn from industry experts and peers alike. The CSSMA is focused on providing a network for commercial operators to collaborate and accelerate together. While a competative advantage is always critical, our members activelly collaberate to help one another.
Our members currently include companies from both the United States and Canada. We are always looking to expand the group's global reach.
Contribute to one of our events by presenting relative information on your constellation, work or challenges. The more you can share about what you are working on the better our members can catch potential pitfalls when moving to coordinating.
Providing venues for the events is always appreciated.
Accelerate your company's path to coordination and ultimately commercial operation. By working with our members you are able to learn about upcoming coordination challenges and circumvent potential pitfalls to your operation.
