Periodic Reporting for period 2 - 3SST2015 (Third funding line in 2015 for the establishment of a European SST service provision function)
Reporting period: 2016-10-01 to 2017-12-31
3SST2015 specifically aims at the definition of an action plan (including scope, priorities and R&D activities) and both the implementation of upgrades on sensors and the planning for the development of new sensors with the goal of delivering improved SST standardised services for users specified in the EU SST framework Decision 541-2014.
It is expected, that the different operational setups within the MS will foster a process of “comparing and learning from each other” which will not only have an impact on reconfiguration of national assets but will also have to be mirrored towards international partners and cooperation. The final goal is the increase of the service quality in terms of awareness about risk of collision in space fragmentation and space object risky re-entry on ground.
Identification of a priority set of National sensors (RADAR, TELESCOPES and LASER RANGING) for their initial upgrade.
