Impacts from the space environment, such as “space debris” and “space weather” may constitute considerable risks for space missions. Due to the growing number of objects in orbit around the earth, there is an increasing need for modelling, analysis and monitoring of space close to the earth.
Since the firm’s foundation (1997), space environment aspects have become a part of etamax space’s core expertise.
Our team is involved in the majority of the relevant ESA and DLR programmes in this field, particularly in the following areas
- space debris
- space weather
- analyses on the influence of the space environment and
- space situational awareness
Our expertise encompasses the development and operation of models and software tools, as well as the application of these tools and the accompaniment of the processes for supporting industrial partners in risk analyses for space flight missions. etamax has many years of experience as a co-ordinator of data and service providers for space weather and space monitoring systems.
