Debris in space

6 May 2016
Posted by:TFK Hermann in News and Events

Some debris of satellite or rocket is in orbit of the Earth. This debris cannot be located radio system therefore debris can hit a satellite when the satellite is moving. To prevent collisions, we needed a lot of data about positions and trajectories. A research team managed by Doctor LEWIS created a system of Cubesat (10x10x10 cm). This network of cube will be put in orbit to share data and communications about space. This team began a project which aims to take off debris of the orbit during the next 25 years. With this project, we can reduce the risk of collision between satellites and debris. To decrease the number of debris, this research team ask to the user of space increase the lifetime of the satellite and participate at their community to protect devices working in space.

Afrikanet will get information about their projects. This project will help us to secure quality of our services and avoid a tragedy like AMOS 5.
