In 2013, the United Nation's General Assembly agreed to support a series of recommendations for an international response to a potential NEO impact threat. These included the establishment of an International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN). IAWN is tasked with designing a strategy to assist Governments in analysing asteroid impact consequences and planning mitigation responses. NEOROCKS is providing input to IAWN, thanks to
