Gather light data on space debris in either geostationary or low earth orbit.
Gather light data on space debris in either geostationary or low earth orbit. This light data, like the kind collected from our GLADOS satellite, can be used to classify space debris, as well as to characterize the size, shape, and material properties of space debris. Builds upon GLADOS’ mission by flying a spectrometer, rather than a visible and near-IR camera. This allows us to use diffused light, a much more common source than glinting light.
