IPNSIG February Newsletter Dear Membership, On behalf of the IPNSIG board, I am pleased to announce the launch of the “IPNSIG Academy” – an educational platform that will cultivate interest, and passion which will result in building expertise in future generations as they work toward realizing an Interplanetary Network (IPN) in the coming 100 years. Our vision at IPNSIG is focused upon enabling a common Solar System Internet (SSI) infrastructure that would benefit all humanity. Instilling this vision and conveying it to future generations will push us forward in that bold endeavor. The “IPNSIG Academy” will serve to propel those efforts by kicking off a series of talks, covering multiple facets surrounding the Interplanetary Network and SSI. In 2022, the IPNSIG Academy will start by addressing the 100 year long-term vision of IPN/SSI; its technological developments (mainly in the area of the DTN protocols), its architectural concepts and issues around governance that would support the operation of the architecture and infrastructure. We have engaged many prestigious and prominent speakers from around the globe. They will be delivering talks relevant to each of these IPN areas. The last session will culminate in a workshop in which we will have discussions on Architecture and Governance with the entire membership.

(The detailed program will be posted on the IPNSIG website soon.) IPNSIG continues to strive to do great things together with our membership and again, we are really excited to get engaged with you all at the Academy! We will update you with dates and times for each of the talks in further newsletters. For any inquiries on this newsletter, please drop a note here: <> Sincerely, Yosuke Kaneko IPNSIG Chair

IPNSIG members, The IPNSIG will launch the Architecture and Governance Working Group (AWG) in 2022. We would like to invite participation from the membership who would be passionate about helping us with the Working Group activity. We envision one member who would bring in valuable insights to the Working Group and willing to provide secretariat support (mainly documentation support). For more details about the AWG, please refer to the document here . If you are interested, please let us know who you are, and how you might contribute (your expertise) by providing a message to the following email address by January 21, 2022. Yosuke Kaneko IPNSIG Chairman

This meeting (and upcoming ones) are our opportunity to express the requirements / needs of the space community to IETF as they evolve the commercial DTN standards. The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) often seeks to profile the commercial standards for use in space and strives for interoperability with them. Ensuring that the IETF standards can accommodate the needs of the space community is critical to advancing the status and interoperability of the systems that will form the Solar System Internet (SSI).
