Wednesday, May 24, 2017

SWF has published an update to its Fact Sheet on Space Situational Awareness (SSA). SSA is the ability to accurately characterize the space environment and activities in space, and is the foundation to nearly all civil, commercial, and national security space activities. Improving SSA is also important to ensuring the long-term sustainability, safety, and security of space. The fact sheet provides an overview of what SSA is, why it is important to space sustainability, and global SSA capabilities. The May 2017 update includes recent improvements to SSA capabilities by the United States, Russia, and the private sector.
