Implementation Model

A framework needs to be established that provides for the planning, implementation and management of the continuing operations associated with the UN Global-Sat System. The cooperative of Nation States interested in the Nano-satellite based constellation should be organized under an international charter and subsequently provide the administration for the organizationís transition through each building phase of the International Collaborative. Development of the charter, business framework, and phases of maturation will be a focus activity for the White paper and a few suggestions relative to this subject matter are offered here.

Potential Framework: Self Governed International Membership Organization:
  • With this business model, the administration, deployment and continuing operations of the UN Global-Sat System will be governed by a not-for-profit cooperative of Nation States organized under an international charter.
  • A Board of Governors appointed by member Nations and populated with representatives from each stakeholder group, will be responsible for all activities associated with the cooperative.
  • Member nations will pay for cost of operation and deployment of assets by contributing to a pool of funds, the amount will be based on membership usage and those usage fees can be mitigated by memberís assignment of National assets and services rendered in support of the UN Global-Sat System.
  • The organization will mature through a system definition/deployment phase and a continuing operation phase. Working groups will be established for the space and ground segments of the UN Global-Sat System and will be populated by all stakeholders with subject matter expertise.
