Abstract
This paper explores the issue of space systems as Critical Infrastructure (CI) and explores methods for demonstrating their reliability, resilience, and security in order to ensure the availability of key services provided by space systems. A case study based on the Anik F2 anomaly is 2011 is analysed from this perspective. Current practices for testing, modelling and simulating space systems in Canada and highlights of deficiencies in these practices with a specific focus on ensuring resiliency of CI are discussed. A recommended shift toward industry led standardisation of functional testing for demonstrating the effectiveness of anomaly mitigation techniques is presented.
