3SST2015 Report Summary

Project ID: 713762
Funded under: H2020-EU.2.1.6.

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - 3SST2015 (Third funding line in 2015 for the establishment of a European SST service provision function)

Reporting period: 2016-01-01 to 2016-09-30

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

The issues being addressed by 3SST2015 project is to identify and prioritise sensors (radars, telescopes and laser stations) controlled by the SST Consortium MS which need to be either updated or renewed in order to improve the overall performance of the SST Support Framework. This activity will result in an action plan, where scope and priorities will be defined, including research and innovation actions with the aim to investigate new technology in order to upgrade and develop new assets forming the future SST Support Framework system.
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 civilian and military European users.
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.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

Definition and analysis of the initial EU SST architecture and possible future EU SST architectures, having as main output the trade-off between possible options considered and the selection of the most suitable one for the EU SST capabilities.
Identification of a priority set of National sensors (RADAR, TELESCOPES and LASER RANGING) for their initial upgrade.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

Actual progress is fostering a process of “comparing and learning from each other” in order to optimise the impact on reconfiguration of national assets which are going to develope a common and coordinate european effort in terms of space surveillance and tracking with a view towards cooperation with international partners.
