Astroscale is advancing space exploration to its next generation — the space sustainability era — and creating a sustainable foundation for growth of the space economy in the process. The company develops innovative and scalable solutions across the spectrum of on-orbit servicing, including life extension, in situ space situational awareness, end of life, and active debris removal. Al Colebourn, Head of Spacecraft Operations at Astroscale, explains the importance of clean space and how Astroscale is tackling the problem.
“We use various simulators within the phases of mission development and execution. It’s very important that we can test our software on ground and iterate it and develop it this way.”
