Space ISAC Conducts Successful TTX at CYSAT Conference


Paris, France, April 25, 2024 — Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Space ISAC) is pleased to announce the successful execution of a dynamic Tabletop Exercise named “Saving Selene: Walking on the Moon” during the 2024 CYSAT conference in Paris, marking a significant milestone in proactive space security initiatives. This engaging exercise brought together global leaders in a public-private, cross-sector collaborative effort to navigate a space-based mining and manufacturing crisis, strategically set in the year 2030.

Participants were presented with a scenario involving a semi-permanent mining facility and an orbital processing plant geared towards extracting rare Earth minerals from the lunar surface. In this scenario, investors from various countries came together to fund a France-based celestial mining company, mirroring the complex dynamics of the real-world space industry.

Attendees, representing diverse backgrounds and expertise, actively engaged in thought-provoking discussions, fostering valuable insights and networking opportunities while working towards shared objectives. Participants gained practical insights and reflections about the evolving landscape of security concerns in the space domain.

Space ISAC member, Nick Reese, Co-founder and COO of Frontier Foundry played a pivotal role in conceptualizing and executing this scenario, ensuring its relevance and authenticity to industry stakeholders.

According to Space ISAC Executive Director, Erin Miller, “Space ISAC’s ability to provide and host global leaders in a dynamic public-private, cross sector, space systems crisis exercise is paramount to collective defense. Space ISAC is well poised to offer more tabletop exercises this year.  The growth of our offering underscores our unwavering commitment to our mission to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry.”

Furthermore, Reese added, “In this exercise, we sought to identify gaps in our ability to respond to incidents in space, beyond LEO. Thanks to the hard work of the entire team, we’ve learned so much and we can get to work turning these lessons learned into actions that will improve the safety and resilience of cislunar space.”  

Looking ahead, Space ISAC is eager to build on this successful collaboration. Together with global members and partners, Space ISAC aspires to drive industry innovation, address key challenges, and foster growth in the space community.
