Latest Insights Into Debris Mitigation and Future Space Responsibilities at Military Space Situational Awareness Conference 2019

SMi Group reports: Explore critical space management strategies at the 14th Annual Military Space Situational Awareness conference this April.

London, United Kingdom, February 09, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Space is becoming more congested, competitive and contested with thousands of small LEO satellites set to be put into orbit over the next decade.

For this reason, SMi Group are delighted to host Military Space Situation Awareness 2019 with an agenda that will explore the urgent need for space management strategies, as the domain grows increasingly congested and contested with debris and satellites.

The two-day conference taking place in London on the 1st-2nd April, will bring together key military, government, civilian and industry stakeholders to discuss technologies and strategies being utilised to build a greater understanding of where assets are, how they are moving and the management of space assets at the end of their shelf life.

A few of the Industry experts who are set to give presentations exploring space debris, include:

Mr Sean Goldsbrough, Senior Orbital Analyst, UK Space Agency, will present on "Debris Mitigation and Future Space responsibilities" covering these topics:

· Coordination of national and international level to reach debris mitigation solutions
· Membership of the Inter Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IADC)
· Re-entry prediction and SSA and utilisation of the Starbrook system for satellite monitoring
· Work with Cranfield University to develop engineering solutions to disposing spacecraft at end of life
· Ensuring the satellites don’t become debris throughout their orbital lifetime
· Future responsibilities to ensure a coherent approach to space management

Mr Simon George, Senior Scientist, DSTL and Mr Andrew Ash, Principle Scientist, Dstl, will present on "DSTL Activities In SSA" covering these topics:

· S&T approaches to overcoming future SSA challenges
· The future space environment and population
· The Daedalus experiment – providing a low-cost alternative to de-orbiting and preventing space debris (including outcomes from the RemoveDebris mission)
· Analysis of LEO and MEO orbit structures and its importance in determining future launch patterns
· Ground-based surveillance and its role in monitoring space congestion
· Building a collaborative approach to UK space domain awareness

Dr. Douglas Hendrix, CEO, ExoAnalytic Solutions, will present on "Technology for an Evolving Space Surveillance and Tracking Market" covering these topics:

· Current Paradigm - Space Situational Awareness
- Background and current services
- Limitations and challenges
· Future paradigm - Space traffic management & Space Defense
- Space Traffic Management
- Services specific for STM
- Technology and process requirements
- Benefits and implications
· Space Defense
- Services specific for space defense
- Technology and process requirements
- Benefits and implications
· Identification of activities best suited for commercial providers or militaries a future construct
