WHO WE WORK WITH

United Kingdom Space Agency

United Kingdom Space Agency

Because of Space Insight's expertise in the observation and analysis of the space population, the United Kingdom Space Agency chooses the Company to provide a wide range of scientific and technical support.

Since 2006 the Company has been commissioned to operate and analyse data from its specialist electro-optical  Starbrook sensors to provide surveillance of higher Earth-based orbits.

As an example, since 2016 as part of the EU Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) Programme Space Insight has been providing the UK Space Agency with surveillance observations of space objects in high Earth orbits. UK participation in the EU SST Programme brings together the UK Space Agency (the lead entity), the Ministry of Defence, the Science & Technology Facilities Council, the Natural Environment Research Council, and Space Insight.

Other support has included Company staff sitting as members of the UK delegation to the Inter-Agency Debris Committee for 11 years, providing comment on / analysis of technology and strategy options for the surveillance of space, predicting satellite re-entry events, and twice (2004 — 2006 and 2014 — 2016) chairing the IADC's Working Group 1 (Measurements).
