Space Junk-Detecting Systems

The Space Fence System Enables Object Detection In Low-Earth Orbit

— March 31, 2016 — Tech
Space Fence is an incredibly high-tech new system, developed by aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, that is designed to revolutionize the way the U.S. Air Force detects and tracjs objects located in space.

The system will make use of an array of radars situated on the ground to offer Air Force personnel reliable identification, tracking and measurement of space objects, particularly those situated in low-earth orbit. The system is intended to replace the current Air Force Space Surveillance System, which has been used for over half a century.

Ultimately, the Space Fence technology will enable better tracking of space junk orbiting the Earth, a growing problem that has arisen in the past decades with more and more parties exercising missions into outer space and into different levels of earth orbit.







Trend Themes
1. Space Fence System - Lockheed Martin's Space Fence System is revolutionizing the way the U.S. Air Force detects and tracks objects in space.
2. Ground-based Space Object Detection - Space Fence's array of ground-based radars offers improved tracking of the growing amount of space objects orbiting Earth.
3. Advanced Space Junk Tracking - The Space Fence system will enable better tracking of space debris, providing new opportunities for mitigating the risks it poses to spacecraft and satellites.
Industry Implications
1. Aerospace - The aerospace industry can utilize Space Fence technology to detect and track objects in space, ensuring safe satellite and space missions.
2. Defense - The military and defense industry can leverage the Space Fence system for missile detection and tracking in low-earth orbit.
3. Satellite Communications - Satellite communication companies can benefit from the Space Fence system by ensuring uninterrupted services from orbiting satellites with improved tracking of space junk.
