Monitor and track space debris and objects larger than 10 centimetres in diameter. Space debris tracking constellation.

Description

This mission will monitor and track space debris and objects larger than 10 centimetres in diameter. In addition, a dedicated, high-precision catalogue of space debris and objects in low Earth orbit is to be developed and existing catalogues in all orbital regions will be improved.

EnduroSat will design and build the ESPA microsatellites which will be deployed in a low-Earth orbit. The spacecraft is also equipped with edge computing capabilities for in-orbit processing of the images in real-time and data reduction.

The first two pilot satellites are to be launched into space from the end of 2024, as part of a 12-satellite constellation. The data generated by the constellation will enhance current SSA capabilities on the global stage and contribute to space safety, empowering satellite owners to make informed operational decisions efficiently.
