Swedish Space Corporation to establish a highly capable SSA station in Australia

At Western Australia Space Center, 400 kilometers north-east of Perth, Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) is about to set up a new station capable of producing highly refined SSA knowledge for its future clients and companions.

The new station is a a part of SSC’s Space Situational Awareness Program with the goal at contributing to each safer and extra sustainable use of near-Earth area as variety of objects retains rising at a speedy tempo.

“We are working diligently to deliver data and develop services to help satellite owners operate their assets as safely and securely as possible. The current number of satellites in space will increase considerably in the future. As the near-Earth space becomes more and more crowded, the need for more precise data will keep growing,” says Jacob Ask, Program Manager from SSC.

The growth of the station began in mid-2020. It options telescopes which will probably be remotely managed from SSC head workplace in Solna in Stockholm, Sweden. These telescopes will probably be used for detecting and monitoring satellites and area particles, accumulating worthwhile data for the administration of area visitors in orbit. The know-how utilized in the station, together with mount, telescopes and cameras, are particularly personalized for area surveillance and monitoring functions.

“After the installation we will engage heavily in joint observation campaigns with our partners, data fusion, data sharing activities and more. We look forward to contribute to a safer environment in space for the benefit of the development of life on Earth,” says Jacob Ask.
