WP8 - Legal frame


Suborbital vehicles require some aerospace dual or military technologies. As a consequence, they are subject to international rules which restrict and control handling, export or proliferation of missile system and military hardware. Four main global agreement exist, and two of them may concern suborbital vehicles:

  1. MTCR: Missile Technology Control Regime,
  2. WA: Wassenaar Arrangement.

As suborbital vehicles are MTCR Category I, they are also submitted to ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations). 

 Address one of the following topics:

  1. To propose a regulation enabling to conciliate applications of suborbital flights with no proliferation rules,

  2. To propose an international frame which enable the rise of suborbital transport.
