Space Debris and Space Traffic Management
Decades of space travel have resulted in a large amount of space debris that can be harmful to today’s satellites. Aerospace is addressing the issue of space debris and space traffic management by developing tools for analyzing potential collisions, studying reentry breakups, and modeling debris objects in space.
Center for Orbital and Reentry Debris Studies
CORDS was established in 1997 to focus the corporation’s research and technology applications in the areas of space debris, collision avoidance, and reentry breakup and to provide a single point-of-contact for organizations seeking to take advantage of Aerospace’s more than 50 years of experience in these and related technical areas.
Resilient Space: The New Star Wars
Warfare is now no longer limited to just the Earth. As outer space becomes more and more competitive, the U.S. Air Force’s Space Warfighting Construct works to deter enemy attacks in space while ensuring that our space capabilities are protected through resilient space initiatives so that the U.S. survives what truly will be—the new “Star Wars.”
Strategies to Outpace the Threat
Foreign proliferation of advanced space systems has left space operations congested and contested, and U.S. adversaries are quickly developing ever more lethal anti-satellite capabilities. How can we transform our national security space enterprise to continuously outpace the adversary threat?
