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

Today, there are more than 750 thousand objects of space debris in Earth’s orbit with a diameter of more than 1

cm, moving at a speed of more than 28 thousand km/h. These are mainly various remains of rockets or shuttles - ranging from huge upper stages 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 technology inspired by nature andbiology, we have developed a dynamic imaging system that is much faster and more efficient and requires much less energy than anything 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.
