Space-based surveillance and reconnaissance defence technologies (space domain) focusing on debris and artificial orbiting objects

< Back

Open Call Reference: EDA

In the contested space environment, it is necessary to address the identification and tracking of debris and artificial objects in all orbital regions. In addition, satellite operators – both military and civil – must be provided with collision avoidance tools to support their decision-making for dedicated manoeuvres.
