Abstract

Why ASE is Concerned:

  • The number of spacecraft and pieces of debris in earth orbit are increasing dramatically
  • 671,000 conjunction warnings in 2014 for 1,500 active satellites (largely ignored)
  • Conjunctions result in large numbers of “lethal” debris
  • The potential for collisions (conjunctions) is increasing
  • There is currently no formal entity coordinating operations for the international community
  • Uninterrupted space operations and safety are at risk
