Airbus Defence and Space to lead TeSeR, next EU project to clean up space

Airbus Defence and Space will lead the project TeSeR (Technology for Self-Removal of Spacecraft) team to develop technology to reduce the risk of spacecraft colliding with debris in space.

Together with its ten European partners, the company will develop a prototype for a cost-efficient and highly reliable module to ensure that future spacecraft don't present a collision risk once they reach the end of their nominal operational lifetimes or suffer an in-service failure. The module may also function as a removal back-up in the case of a loss of control over a spacecraft.

Airbus Defence and Space will act as the coordinator of the consortium and will be responsible for project management, technical coordination and the development of innovative attitude control systems.

Under Grant Agreement No 687295, part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the TeSeR study programme will receive EU funding of more than euro 2.8 million and will run through 2018. Airbus Defence and Space will also be investing its own resources in the project.

Orbital space is becoming increasingly congested. Space debris threatens space-based infrastructures which are vital for life on Earth. Disused spacecraft are a potentially dangerous source of space debris. The TeSeR project develops technologies that will ensure a sustainable space environment for future generations.

Students observe damaged Hitomi X-ray satellite and debris
Daytona Beach FL (SPX) Apr 20, 2016
Engineering Physics students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach Campus have made several high-cadence telescope observations of the recently damaged Hitomi X-ray satellite and several of its debris pieces. Hitomi, also known as ASTRO-H, was a Japanese X-ray astronomy satellite that was launched in February. The $275 million spacecraft was 46 feet long when deployed and ... read more
