The demonstrator radar developed by Indra for detecting objects in space has successfully passed the validation tests performed within the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness (SSA) preparation programme.

The first phase of this programme aims to establish the basis for building the future European system that will monitor the waste from other missions that is floating freely in space. There are an estimated 700,000 objects orbiting our planet in an uncontrolled manner, and this poses a serious risk to our missions and operational satellites.

The tests performed at Santorcaz (Madrid) had the aim of verifying that the technology used by the radar system is mature enough to be used in the design of a definitive surveillance system..

Indra is Spain's number 1 consulting and technology multinational and one of the main multinationals in Europe and Latin America. Innovation and sustainability are the cornerstone of its business, having assigned over euro 570 million to R and D in the last three years, a figure that places it among the top European companies in its sector in terms of investment. With approximate sales of 3,000 M euro, 61% of its sales revenue is from the international market. It has 42,000 employees and customers in over 138 countries.

Sunday night's firing of on-board thrusters pushed the orbiting lab up a half-mile. Experts aren't sure how big the junk is. After the maneuver, it was determined the debris would have posed no threat. NASA says it preferred playing it safe. ... read more
