As we approach Solar Cycle 25, the landscape we see around us in the spacecraft operations arena is very different to that we saw at the same point in Solar Cycle 24. Developments include significant growth in the number of spacecraft operators facilitated in part by so-called NewSpace initiatives aiming at lowering barriers for entry into the space industry; the emergence of Electric Orbit Raising missions spending comparatively long periods of time crossing the Earth’s radiation belts, and the growth in use of Cubesats and other small platforms both alone and as part of large constellations. In addition, new endeavours in human spaceflight set to move beyond low Earth orbit in the coming years will require different operational scenarios.
