Steering ESA satellites clear of space debris
Paris (ESA) Oct 31, 2014
Improved collision warnings for its Earth observation missions means ESA controllers can now take more efficient evasive action when satellites are threatened by space junk. ESA has signed an agreement with the US Strategic Command to improve data exchange between the organisations for supporting missions. The tie-up will see ESA receiving higher quality and more timely space information tailored to its needs in exchange for sharing more accurate positional information of its satellites. Eng ... read more
