Vyoma and ESA Collaborate to Advance Technologies for Safer Space Operations

Vyoma and ESA Collaborate to Advance Technologies for Safer Space Operations

Vyoma and the European Space Agency (ESA) kicked off a 14-month project within the frame of ESA’s Competitiveness Element in the Space Safety Program. The goal is to evaluate the Vyoma Collision Avoidance Manoeuvre (CAM) recommendation service according to the strict requirements and quality standards of ESA. 

As part of the project, ESA is granting Vyoma access to the Conjunction Data Messages and CAM solutions of up to five of its Earth Explorer missions. This allows Vyoma to mirror the ESA operations on collision avoidance and validate its own optimal maneuver solutions, considering various operational constraints such as propulsion type, delta-v consumption, eclipses, regional anomalies, etc.

Dr. Stefan Frey, CEO of Vyoma says that, “This project is a great opportunity for Vyoma to learn from the years of experience of ESA engineers. Our goal is to make frequent and accurate space situational awareness data as well as matured space safety services available to satellite operators wanting to keep their assets safe – including ourselves.”

“The competitiveness segment in ESA’s Space Safety Program aims at developing the space safety market and at exploiting commercialization dimensions. Vyoma has developed a market-ready technology that is very relevant for space safety applications, and we are very much looking forward to working with the team for the agreed evaluation of their service”, says Dr. Tim Flohrer, Head of ESA’s Space Debris Office and ESA’s Technical Officer of the project.

Vyoma’s Space Safety services, tailored to the needs of satellite operators, combine its digital space twin with insightful and actionable information. Next to collision warnings, presented in an easy-to-understand interface, Vyoma enables its users to study the geometry and evolution of the conjunction, predict ground-station passes for communication windows, task on-demand tracking campaigns, plan optimal avoidance maneuvers, and screen trajectories against the entire background population.
