Jana Robinson Named PSSI’S Space Security Program Director

01.07.2015

Ms. Jana Robinson, who joined PSSI in April 2015 as a Senior Fellow, has been named Director of PSSI’s Space Security Program with responsibility for all activities related to this Program. She has been intimately involved in this PSSI priority program since its inception in 2010, including the organization of its two large international conferences on this subject in June 2011 in Prague and October 2013 in Tokyo.

Ms. Robinson is especially qualified to assume these responsibilities, given a career in space security that has spanned some 10 years. She did her second Master’s Degree on this subject and Asian affairs at the prestigious Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University in the United States. This was followed by entry into the Summer School Program of International Space University at the NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View California in 2009, on a partial scholarship from the European Space Agency (ESA).

Later, she headed the Space Security Research Program at the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), the premier think tank of the European Space Agency, for some three and a half years. She then assumed the position of Space Policy Officer in the area of Space Security at the EU’s European External Action Service (EEAS). Ms. Robinson also served for about a year as a Space Security Advisor to the Czech Foreign Ministry, seconded to the EEAS.
