Space data company Aldoria is looking to help solidify its position as a leader in the market by partnering up with Luxembourg’s satellite operator SES. Their project agreement will focus on enhancing satellite safety.

The collaboration will start on March 1. With that, Space Situational Awareness (SSA) provider Aldoria will share its conjunction alert service with SES. This technology allows operators to track their assets in space, identify potential collision risks, and receive real-time alerts. These advanced tools provide crucial information such as the time of close approach, the relative position and velocity of neighbouring space objects, and the associated collision probability.

Satellite surge

A record 2,900 satellites were launched into orbit in 2023, and the space industry looks set to keep expanding. Satellite expert Euroconsult recently estimated that 2,800 satellites could be launched on average between 2023 and 2032. This is the equivalent of 8 satellites per day, weighing a total of 4 tonnes. Having data on the increasing mass of spacecraft circling our planet appears all the more important.

“With this agreement, we are well-placed to maintain our leading position in SSA services in Europe, providing a competitive solution tailored to the market. We look forward to the potential of this future collaboration.”

The Toulouse-based company sees this agreement as a stepping stone to reaching new heights in performance calibration for accurate and reliable monitoring capabilities. SES, on the other hand, is in a good position to benefit from Aldoria’s risk mitigation solutions, providing it with more accurate data for better-informed decision-making.
