Space Data Routers: enhancing space-data exploitation (public)
Convener: Ioannis A. Daglis 
Wed, 30 Apr, 10:30–12:00  / Room R3
Data distribution and data access are major issues in space sciences and geosciences (in particular Earth Observation) as they strongly influence the degree of data exploitation. Processing and analysis of large volumes of Earth observation and space/planetary data face two major impediments: limited access capabilities due to narrow connectivity windows between spacecraft and ground receiving stations and lack of sufficient communication and dissemination mechanisms between space data receiving centres and the end-user community. Real-time data assimilation that would be critical in a number of forecasting capabilities is particularly affected by such limitations. The FP7-Space project “Space-Data Routers” (SDR) has the aim of allowing space agencies, academic institutes and research centres to disseminate/share space data generated by single or multiple missions, in an efficient, secure and automated manner. The approach of SDR relies on space internetworking – and in particular on Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN), which marks the new era in space communications, unifies space and earth communication infrastructures and delivers a set of tools and protocols for space-data exploitation. This splinter meeting will present the results of the Space-Data Routers project to the scientific community.
