COMSPOC delivers precise and accurate space domain awareness to address current and emerging challenges in the space environment.
A subsidiary of AGI, COMSPOC provides software products and services for the space operations community. Our safety of flight and mission assurance services are the most accurate, precise, and complete in the private sector. Our software products provide comprehensive space operations analysis capabilities.
We also research future risks to the space environment (and their solutions), contribute to international standards, and advocate for responsible space safety and best practices in the civil, commercial, academic, national, and international space communities.

N E A T
Within ten years, we can expect up to 2.5 million close calls per year in the most congested orbital regimes if these threats are not effectively managed and mitigated. What will that realized population mean for collision risk? The Number of Encounters Assessment Tool (NEAT) assesses collision risk by adjusting key parameters including constellation size, orbit altitude, and inclination. Users can also customize their threshold for warnings, maneuvers, and hard-body collisions.
