Despite the significant increase in cyber threats to space systems, structured technical community engagement in space cybersecurity and mission resilience with an emphasis on the systematic advancement of technical guidance is lacking. The international group of co-authors propose the development of a space system cybersecurity technical standard intended for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) modular space systems, such as CubeSats.
