Planetary Protection of Outer Solar System

Deliverables

The international Planetary Protection Handbook

The handbook will describe the state-of-the-art and good-practices to implement planetary protection requirements. It will be available through the PPOSS web-site, generated in WP6, and as hardcopy published by PPOSS. The handbook will serve as a reference for introduction, education and training on matters of planetary protection for the various stakeholders, including dedicated outreach and capacity building seminars and workshops described in WP6.

The PPOSS research white book

This strategic document will express and substantiate scientific priorities, suggest potential research activities and provide implementation recommendation (including aspects related to categorisations of future missions to the outer solar system).

PPOSS industry roadmaps

PPOSS industry roadmaps will be structured around (sets of) technologies required to meet outer solar system bodies planetary protection requirements. They will be synthesised in a graphical presentation and will be completed by explanatory text.

Reports from PPOSS Transfer of knowledge Seminars

Document presenting how PPOSS seminar went, including information on participation and programme.

PPOSS international Memorandum of Understanding

This deliverable will present teh Term and Conditions of the collaboration with non-European organisations (international partners and observers).
