Recently concluded workshop following upon the report last year by Association of Space Explorers (ASE) Committee on Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) and its Panel on Asteroid Threat Mitigation on recommendations for global information, mitigation, and decision-making as related to planetary defense.
The Association of Space Explorers co-sponsored with the Secure World Foundation a January workshop in Mexico City on an international Information, Analysis, and Warning network [IAWN] to distribute reliable information on hazardous NEOs. This is part of the proposal laid out in the ASE report for an IAWN.
