Market for high precision debris data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Commercial and civil satellite operators need high precision debris data to accurately assess conjunctions and ensure safety of their assets, but this data is not readily available from the military space surveillance networks. Small low-cost telescopes have proven to be a valuable tool for obtaining such data. Industry and academia have moved to explore this option and start deploying their own sensor networks. Each network will have a subset of the full desired dataset. A free market for high precision debris data will provide satellite operators with comprehensive and highly accurate datasets they need.
