  • radar data acquired by the LeoLabs company, which speicalizes in the tracking of the objects at the Low Earth Orbit (LEO)
  • optical data acquired by the ART telescope (Airbus Robotic Telescope), which was developed to track the obcjects at Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO)

Project consortium: Airbus Defence and Space (lider), Sybilla Technologies, Space Research Centr Polish Academy of Sciences (Centrum Badań Kosmicznych PAN), Astri Polska

Timeframe: 2019-2020

The project is funded by the European Space Agency
