About the IPDA

Composition, member agencies, and more about the International Planetary Data Alliance.

The International Planetary Data Alliance (IPDA) and its Steering Committee was founded in 2006.  The Steering Committee is comprised of two members from each member agency.  A chair and deputy chair is selected from the members which preside over the IPDA for a two-year term.  IPDA projects which involve multiple members are identified to support the IPDA goals. Several teleconferences are held during the calendar year with one face-to-face meeting held in the summer.
