Oneliner Study the (micro) space debris environment in LEO to complement the models by an active short-range radar as well as a deployable piezoelectric array.
Results [The first signal detected by the cubesat “ADLER-1”, developed by the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF) together with Spire Global Inc. and Findus Venture Gmbh, originates from an extraterrestrial object or a micrometeoroid with an estimated velocity of 54,000-72,000 km/h.](https://adler.oewf.org/2022/05/09/adler-1-successfully-detects-first-object/) The first signal was detected in early May. Of the 70,000 signals detected so far, one signal shape has changed significantly, ultimately indicating this high velocity. At the time of detection, the ADLER-1 cubesat was at an altitude of 479 kilometers above the Atlantic Ocean.
