Space Traffic Control

There is an increasing need for effective Space Traffic Control in order to manage the growing numbers of objects in Earth orbit, both active satellites and space debris. 

 

The talk will suggest measures that can be taken by satellite operators, licensing authorities, and companies which are developing space surveillance networks in order to deliver a sustainable environment for future space operations.
