Lambda-X enters into an agreement with SpaceAble in order to provide the relevant optical technology which is mandatory for the needs of Space Situational Awareness (SSA), allowing the identification of human and natural threats in orbit.
Over the next 5 to 10 years, the number of low Earth orbit satellites will multiply massively. New constellations will have to safely coexist with large amounts of orbital debris which might increase risks of collisions. Through observing and identifying threats, SpaceAble contributes to preventing risks and maintaining a more sustainable space environment by visual inspection of satellites.
“We are proud to share with SpaceAble our background and available optical technology bricks in order to help the development of sustainable and efficient space environment for the future.” – says Olivier Dupont, CEO of Lambda-X.
The project has already started with expected delivery of the optical payload before end of 2023.
