European Space Surveillance Conference, 7-9 June 2011, Madrid, Spain. 

Following the decision at the Ministerial Council 2008 to initiate a Preparatory Programme on Space Situational Awareness, the European Space Agency has started a series of activities with the industry, implementing both classical design approaches: bottom-up and top-down. For Space Surveillance and Tracking, the bottom-up approach translates
in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

In November 2008, more
the European Space Agency (ESA) Council at Ministerial level approved the start of ESA’s Space Situational Awareness programme. Between 2009 and 2012 a preparatory phase will run that will develop the architectural design of the system, the governance and data policy and the provision of precursor services in the areas of: Space Surveillance and Tracking, Space Weather and Near Earth Objects.

This paper will concentrate on the first of these segments: Space Surveillance and Tracking. It will develop the following main topics: Customer requirements and their integration, the initiation of an integrated catalogue, extension of correlated data to service provision and international cooperation and data fusion The development of the services resulting from these points will be a key driver in the final architecture. This architecture will be proposed at the next Ministerial Council to further develop a full SSA system from 2012 onwards.

Europe is preparing for the development of an autonomous system for space situational awareness. One important segment of this new system will be dedicated to the surveillance and tracking of space objects in Earth orbits. First concept and capability analysis studies have led to a draft system proposal. This foresees, as a first deployment step, a ground-based system consisting of radar sensors and a network of optical telescopes. These sensors will be designed to have the capability of building-up and maintaining orbital elements and properties of space objects in a catalogue. Based on these capabilities, a number of related services will be provided including collision avoidance and the prediction of uncontrolled re-entry events. For the time being, user requirements; defining the various services and their required accuracy and timeliness, are being consolidated. Parameters such as the lower diameter limit above which catalogue coverage is to be achieved, the level of catalogue coverage in various orbital regions and the accuracy of the orbit data maintained in the catalogue are important design drivers for the number, location and performance of the various sensors. In this requirement consolidation process the performance to be specified has to be based on a careful analysis which takes into account accuracy constraints of the services to be provided, the technical feasibility, complexity and costs. User requirements cannot be defined without understanding the consequences they would pose on the system design.

This paper will outline the user requirement consolidation process for the surveillance and tracking segment. It will present the core user requirements and the definition of the services that are derived from them. The desired performance parameters are explained, together with the corresponding justification. This will be followed by an identification of the major design drivers. The influence of these drivers on the system design will be analysed, including limiting diameter, catalogue coverage and orbit maintenance accuracy driven by the planned collision avoidance service. Finally, a first-pass compilation of settled performance parameters for the surveillance and tracking segment will be presented and design solution concepts of a corresponding ground-based surveillance radar.

the European Space Agency (ESA) Council at Ministerial level approved the start of ESA’s Space Situational Awareness programme. Between 2009 and 2012 a preparatory phase will run that will develop the architectural design of the system, cialis 40mg
the governance and data policy and the provision of precursor services in the areas of: Space Surveillance and Tracking, Space Weather and Near Earth Objects.

This paper will concentrate on the first of these segments: Space Surveillance and Tracking. It will develop the following main topics: Customer requirements and their integration, the initiation of an integrated catalogue, extension of correlated data to service provision and international cooperation and data fusion The development of the services resulting from these points will be a key driver in the final architecture. This architecture will be proposed at the next Ministerial Council to further develop a full SSA system from 2012 onwards.

Phobos-Grunt re-entry (image: Michael Carroll)

There’s a nice article with a portion of an interview with me on space.com here: http://www.space.com/14312-russia-mars-probe-phobos-grunt-conspiracy-theories.html.

Working together to be able to get the maximum amount of data spread over as much area as possible is critical to ensuring we can locate where re-entry objects could have landed. It’s a long road towards complete harmony, emergency but the IADC is doing a lot of work towards that aim.

It could be quite a while before we know where exactly the probe landed – there may be a lot of data to sift through before a true picture emerges, health care but at the moment, I still think the probe landed in the empty areas of the Pacific ocean (just where we wanted it to go!). I hope that the prediction stays that way.

Here is a selection of some of the papers I have cooperated on over the past few years. It isn’t exhaustive, sanitary but I hope that it is useful.

European Space Surveillance Conference, 7-9 June 2011, Madrid, Spain. 

Following the decision at the Ministerial Council 2008 to initiate a Preparatory Programme on Space Situational Awareness, the European Space Agency has started a series of activities with the industry, implementing both classical design approaches: bottom-up and top-down. For Space Surveillance and Tracking, the bottom-up approach translates
in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

European Space Surveillance Conference, 7-9 June 2011, Madrid, Spain. 

Following the decision at the Ministerial Council 2008 to initiate a Preparatory Programme on Space Situational Awareness, the European Space Agency has started a series of activities with the industry, implementing both classical design approaches: bottom-up and top-down. For Space Surveillance and Tracking, the bottom-up approach translates
in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies Conference, view

In November 2008, more
the European Space Agency (ESA) Council at Ministerial level approved the start of ESA’s Space Situational Awareness programme. Between 2009 and 2012 a preparatory phase will run that will develop the architectural design of the system, the governance and data policy and the provision of precursor services in the areas of: Space Surveillance and Tracking, Space Weather and Near Earth Objects.

This paper will concentrate on the first of these segments: Space Surveillance and Tracking. It will develop the following main topics: Customer requirements and their integration, the initiation of an integrated catalogue, extension of correlated data to service provision and international cooperation and data fusion The development of the services resulting from these points will be a key driver in the final architecture. This architecture will be proposed at the next Ministerial Council to further develop a full SSA system from 2012 onwards.

Europe is preparing for the development of an autonomous system for space situational awareness. One important segment of this new system will be dedicated to the surveillance and tracking of space objects in Earth orbits. First concept and capability analysis studies have led to a draft system proposal. This foresees, as a first deployment step, a ground-based system consisting of radar sensors and a network of optical telescopes. These sensors will be designed to have the capability of building-up and maintaining orbital elements and properties of space objects in a catalogue. Based on these capabilities, a number of related services will be provided including collision avoidance and the prediction of uncontrolled re-entry events. For the time being, user requirements; defining the various services and their required accuracy and timeliness, are being consolidated. Parameters such as the lower diameter limit above which catalogue coverage is to be achieved, the level of catalogue coverage in various orbital regions and the accuracy of the orbit data maintained in the catalogue are important design drivers for the number, location and performance of the various sensors. In this requirement consolidation process the performance to be specified has to be based on a careful analysis which takes into account accuracy constraints of the services to be provided, the technical feasibility, complexity and costs. User requirements cannot be defined without understanding the consequences they would pose on the system design.

This paper will outline the user requirement consolidation process for the surveillance and tracking segment. It will present the core user requirements and the definition of the services that are derived from them. The desired performance parameters are explained, together with the corresponding justification. This will be followed by an identification of the major design drivers. The influence of these drivers on the system design will be analysed, including limiting diameter, catalogue coverage and orbit maintenance accuracy driven by the planned collision avoidance service. Finally, a first-pass compilation of settled performance parameters for the surveillance and tracking segment will be presented and design solution concepts of a corresponding ground-based surveillance radar.

In this requirement consolidation process the performance to be specified has to be based on a careful analysis which takes into account accuracy constraints of the services to be provided, the technical feasibility, complexity and costs. User requirements cannot be defined without understanding the consequences they would pose on the system design.

This paper will outline the user requirement consolidation process for the surveillance and tracking segment. It will present the core user requirements and the definition of the services that are derived from them. The desired performance parameters are explained, together with the corresponding justification. This will be followed by an identification of the major design drivers. The influence of these drivers on the system design will be analysed, including limiting diameter, catalogue coverage and orbit maintenance accuracy driven by the planned collision avoidance service. Finally, a first-pass compilation of settled performance parameters for the surveillance and tracking segment will be presented and design solution concepts of a corresponding ground-based surveillance radar.

The Satellite Tool Kit (STK) Astrogator software module is the third and most recent version of a program originally developed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This software lineage – Swingby, Navigator, Astrogator started in 1998 and has since been used to design and operate many missions, including Clementine, Wind,SOHO, ACE, Lunar Prospector, the AsiaSat 3 rescue, and MAP. This paper describes the history of the software program and numerical methods employed. The authors also discuss the software design methodology and goals that led to this mature software product. Limitations encountered during analysis and operations use are described, as well as subsequent architecture changes made to alleviate them, reduce risk, and support automation. Finally, examples of real-world analysis problems are described, with solutions.

Europe is preparing for the development of an autonomous system for space situational awareness. One important segment of this new system will be dedicated to the surveillance and tracking of space objects in Earth orbits. First concept and capability analysis studies have led to a draft system proposal. This foresees, as a first deployment step, a ground-based system consisting of radar sensors and a network of optical telescopes. These sensors will be designed to have the capability of building-up and maintaining orbital elements and properties of space objects in a catalogue. Based on these capabilities, a number of related services will be provided including collision avoidance and the prediction of uncontrolled re-entry events. For the time being, user requirements; defining the various services and their required accuracy and timeliness, are being consolidated. Parameters such as the lower diameter limit above which catalogue coverage is to be achieved, the level of catalogue coverage in various orbital regions and the accuracy of the orbit data maintained in the catalogue are important design drivers for the number, location and performance of the various sensors. In this requirement consolidation process the performance to be specified has to be based on a careful analysis which takes into account accuracy constraints of the services to be provided, the technical feasibility, complexity and costs.

It will present the core user requirements and the definition of the services that are derived from them. The desired performance parameters are explained, together with the corresponding justification. This will be followed by an identification of the major design drivers. The influence of these drivers on the system design will be analysed, including limiting diameter, catalogue coverage and orbit maintenance accuracy driven by the planned collision avoidance service. Finally, a first-pass compilation of settled performance parameters for the surveillance and tracking segment will be presented and design solution concepts of a corresponding ground-based surveillance radar.

Europe is preparing for the development of an autonomous system for space situational awareness. One important segment of this new system will be dedicated to the surveillance and tracking of space objects in Earth orbits. First concept and capability analysis studies have led to a draft system proposal. This foresees, as a first deployment step, a ground-based system consisting of radar sensors and a network of optical telescopes. These sensors will be designed to have the capability of buildingup and maintaining orbital elements and properties of space objects in a catalogue.

Based on these capabilities, a number of related services will be provided including collision avoidance and the prediction of uncontrolled re-entry events. For the time being, user requirements; defining the various services and their required accuracy and timeliness, are being consolidated. Parameters such as the lower diameter limit above which catalogue coverage is to be achieved, the level of catalogue coverage in various orbital regions and the accuracy of the orbit data maintained in the catalogue are important design drivers for the number, location and performance of the various sensors. In this requirement consolidation process the performance to be specified has to be based on a careful analysis which takes into account accuracy constraints of the services to be provided, the technical feasibility, complexity and costs. User requirements cannot be defined without understanding the consequences they would pose on the system design.

Launch uncertainties can cause a significant impact on the scope and lifetime of any satellite mission. Through the use of COTS software, coupled with algorithms tailored to meet the system to be studied can either reduce the time required to completely characterise the boundaries of recoverable errors, or enable a broader range of possible scenarios to be studied.

the governance and data policy and the provision of precursor services in the areas of: Space Surveillance and Tracking, Space Weather and Near Earth Objects.

This paper will concentrate on the first of these segments: Space Surveillance and Tracking. It will develop the following main topics: Customer requirements and their integration, the initiation of an integrated catalogue, extension of correlated data to service provision and international cooperation and data fusion The development of the services resulting from these points will be a key driver in the final architecture. This architecture will be proposed at the next Ministerial Council to further develop a full SSA system from 2012 onwards.

Phobos-Grunt re-entry (image: Michael Carroll)

There’s a nice article with a portion of an interview with me on space.com here: http://www.space.com/14312-russia-mars-probe-phobos-grunt-conspiracy-theories.html.

Working together to be able to get the maximum amount of data spread over as much area as possible is critical to ensuring we can locate where re-entry objects could have landed. It’s a long road towards complete harmony, emergency but the IADC is doing a lot of work towards that aim.

It could be quite a while before we know where exactly the probe landed – there may be a lot of data to sift through before a true picture emerges, health care but at the moment, I still think the probe landed in the empty areas of the Pacific ocean (just where we wanted it to go!). I hope that the prediction stays that way.

Here is a selection of some of the papers I have cooperated on over the past few years. It isn’t exhaustive, sanitary but I hope that it is useful.

The Satellite Tool Kit (STK) Astrogator software module is the third and most recent version of a program originally developed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This software lineage – Swingby, Navigator, Astrogator started in 1998 and has since been used to design and operate many missions, including Clementine, Wind,SOHO, ACE, Lunar Prospector, the AsiaSat 3 rescue, and MAP.

This paper describes the history of the software program and numerical methods employed. The authors also discuss the software design methodology and goals that led to this mature software product. Limitations encountered during analysis and operations use are described, as well as subsequent architecture changes made to alleviate them, reduce risk, and support automation. Finally, examples of real-world analysis problems are described, with solutions.

European Space Surveillance Conference, 7-9 June 2011, Madrid, Spain. 

Following the decision at the Ministerial Council 2008 to initiate a Preparatory Programme on Space Situational Awareness, the European Space Agency has started a series of activities with the industry, implementing both classical design approaches: bottom-up and top-down. For Space Surveillance and Tracking, the bottom-up approach translates
in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

European Space Surveillance Conference, 7-9 June 2011, Madrid, Spain. 

Following the decision at the Ministerial Council 2008 to initiate a Preparatory Programme on Space Situational Awareness, the European Space Agency has started a series of activities with the industry, implementing both classical design approaches: bottom-up and top-down. For Space Surveillance and Tracking, the bottom-up approach translates
in particular into an activity in CO-VI consisting of an assessment of the existing European assets that can be used for tracking campaigns, both in low and high altitude regions. It addresses non only the technical performances of the assets but also the identification of their current operational constraints that could be in fine parts of a Service Level Agreement for their contribution in the future European SSA System.

In that context, this paper presents both aspects, addressing only the radar tracking campaigns i.e. the LEO region (a similar article is written on the high altitude region). During the campaigns, the following existing European radars – EISCAT and CAMRa – were used to track several satellites selected to cover a wide range of altitude and inclination in the LEO region. Two different campaigns were done to track the satellites. Orbit restitution was performed in order to characterise the role of the different observation parameters and to point out the best way to improve the orbit estimation performance with a single assets or with a combination of the different assets.

This paper describes the preparation of the campaigns as well as the results obtained, with particular focus on the first campaign. The campaigns were mainly driven by the availability of radar assets and the visibilities of the satellites. The precise orbit determination enabled the comparison of the different assets performance.

Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies Conference, view
14-17 September 2010

In November 2008, more
the European Space Agency (ESA) Council at Ministerial level approved the start of ESA’s Space Situational Awareness programme. Between 2009 and 2012 a preparatory phase will run that will develop the architectural design of the system, the governance and data policy and the provision of precursor services in the areas of: Space Surveillance and Tracking, Space Weather and Near Earth Objects.

This paper will concentrate on the first of these segments: Space Surveillance and Tracking. It will develop the following main topics: Customer requirements and their integration, the initiation of an integrated catalogue, extension of correlated data to service provision and international cooperation and data fusion The development of the services resulting from these points will be a key driver in the final architecture. This architecture will be proposed at the next Ministerial Council to further develop a full SSA system from 2012 onwards.
