Collective Safety, Security and Prosperity - Fractional Ownership Model
24 May 2010 - The world┐s oceans, seas, and waterways are trade routes that are increasingly threatened by non-state actors, perpetrating criminal acts of terrorism, piracy, drug trafficking, over-fishing, pollution, illegal immigration and other abuses to international cooperation and law. For the first time in history, these non-state actors now have the ability for global reach and the potential for disastrous global impact. The emergence of unrestricted, asymmetric threats facilitated by the proliferation of technology and emergence of the global economy underscores the need for increased global situational awareness, and sharing that awareness with legitimate national sovereignties to enhance safety, security and prosperity. This challenge is much like the situation that faced the Allies at the end of the Second World War with both a shift in the political and economic world order and the emergence of technologies that allowed individual nations to threaten the globe. The Allies were faced with trying to establish mechanisms for international cooperation as both superpowers and new nations emerged from the previous imperial / colonial framework and the nuclear age ushered in the threat of global destruction. To-date, it has not been technically possible to establish a sufficiently affordable and transparent capability to allow all nations to participate in a cooperative program to collect situational awareness data from every place on earth. The CANEUS Shared SmallSat CSSP (Collective Safety, Security and Prosperity) is the Global initiative dedicated to fostering Global collaboration to create a concept for space-based communications infrastructure owned and operated by a multi-national cooperative. The capability envisions data collection from position reporting systems and other distributed sensors to enhance partners┐ safety and security.
