June 6, 2023 – Share My Space, the French space surveillance and operations safety startup has signed a new contract with Japanese headquartered in-orbit servicing company Astroscale. This first contract will optimally enable Astroscale to assess space objects’ attitude in LEO, a mandatory requirement for any on-orbit rendez-vous. As space exploration and satellite population continue to advance, the need for effective space surveillance becomes increasingly urgent. Attitude analysis of space objects is a critical factor in ensuring environmental safety, mitigating the risk of catastrophic collisions in space and preventing further polluting fragmentation. To that effect, Astroscale has called upon Share My Space’s value-added services in orbital objects attitude analysis. By assessing the attitude of space objects, Share My Space ensures that space activities are conducted safely, responsibly and with minimal impact on the environment. Share My Space has been utilizing its ground-based sensors to collect optical data for Astroscale in LEO, to analyse it and extract and characterise light curves. From these light curves, Share My Space describes rotation rates and tumbling axis analysis of all kinds of space objects. Tracking and characterising space objects facilitates potential risks identification and preventive decision-making processes. Astroscale is the first private company with a vision to secure the safe and sustainable development of space for the benefit of future generations and is dedicated to in-orbit servicing across all orbits.
