Space (Traffic) Jam

By: Maggie Handler

“Thousands of satellites are being planned for launch into mega-constellations, which will eventually constitute a huge traffic hazard.” Said Paul Welsh, AGI’s Vice President of Business Development, at last year’s Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies (AMOS) Conference. “Governments and commercial satellite operators must work together to define rules to maximize the safety of flight and to protect space systems that are essential for our daily lives.”

One year later and Paul’s statement is even more relevant. Companies like SpaceX and OneWeb are planning on launching mega satellite constellations, with SpaceX successfully launching two of its test satellites in February 2018 and OneWeb to begin its constellation in 2019. The 2018 AMOS Conference is the place to be as experts in space situational awareness (SSA) discuss the increasingly complex and growing SSA industry.

AGI is excited to participate at this year’s AMOS conference, addressing the needs of a more complicated and contested space environment. Our developers have been keeping up with industry demand and have enhanced our current products, as well as created new ones to be released this fall. These updates in our technologies provide a validated and verified modeling and simulation environment to evaluate space architectures and to develop more cost effective and resilient systems.
