EUSPA grows further to support EU Space Traffic Management

03 July 2023
With over 20.000 satellites expected to be launched in the next decade, space is becoming increasingly congested, and the situation is especially pronounced in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The abundance of satellites is not only responsible for "an unprecedented space traffic jam" but it’s also the cause of a large amount of space debris which is increasing at an alarming rate.
Following a European Commission’s Decision of 3 June 2022, EUSPA is operating the Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) Front Desk as of 1 July.

A new report by UNOOSA & EUSPA looks at how Copernicus, Galileo, EGNOS and GOVSATCOM can address such population-related challenges as food security, water management, climate change and the environment.

Safeguarding space infrastructure

15 May 2023
Space debris can be anything from defunct satellites or rocket pieces to small cables and screws that have fallen off a rocket during launch. Orbiting Earth at an ultra-highspeed space debris can cause irreversible damage to operational satellites and even, create more debris caused by the collision. The consequences could be more serious for us, end-users, down on Earth.
Thanks to the EU SST, the EU provides collision avoidance information and services for over 390 satellites distributed in Low, Medium and Geostationary Orbits.
