As the regions of space around Earth become increasingly crowded with new satellites, the most popular orbits are becoming hazardous and could reach a level at which a collision between two objects would result in a cascade. But new technologies such as Fugro’s SpaceStar® are being developed that enable companies and agencies to know precisely where their assets are in real time. Not only protecting against collisions, but improving outcomes and enabling new applications for Earth monitoring.
