Engineers have created a space imaging system. It will prevent satellite collisions with debris in orbit.

Today, more than 750 thousand objects of space debris with a diameter of more than 1

cm, moving at a speed of more than 28 thousand km / h. Basically, they are various remnants of rockets or shuttles, ranging from huge accelerating blocks to small bolts and nuts.

However, track debris that threaten bothcommercial and state military and scientific apparatus, it is difficult. For these purposes, the researchers created Astrosite, developed on the principle of the human eye. The system will allow you to track space debris in "unprecedented quality" in real time and at any time of the day - even during the day.

Using technologies inspired by nature andBiology, we have developed a dynamic visualization system that works much faster and more efficiently and requires much less energy than everything on the market today.

Previously, the British satellite RemoveDEBRIS for the first time instories caught artificial space junk in low earth orbit. At this time, the object captured by the harpoon and the network was not sent by scientists to test the apparatus, but was a real fragment of a satellite rotating in orbit.
