Training Course on Launch and Reentry Safety
16-18 May 2013, McGill’s Faculty of Law, Montreal

Over the last fifty years the methods for understanding and managing the risks associated with the launch and reentry of spacecraft have evolved significantly.  These advances have been driven by a combination of larger and more complex space boosters and decreased buffer between populated areas and launch sites.  Improved risk management has resulted from increased computational capacity and more refined modeling.  The result has been an outstanding record of protecting the public from the inherently dangerous operations of launching spacecraft.

This course teaches the principles of launch and reentry safety analysis and risk management.  It is an enhanced version of the course first taught at US ranges and later in association with four previous IAASS conferences.

The course will be taught by Jerry Haber with support from Erik Larson and Randy Nyman.  Mr. Haber has been the lead instructor for the previous IAASS courses.  All three instructors have presented many flight safety courses to the US National Ranges and the FAA.  They have also authored key launch safety related chapters of the forthcoming Elsevier graduate level textbook SAFETY DESIGN OF SPACE OPERATIONS.
