Yes, there is a new space debris cleanup sheriff in town and it is a sister company to Launchspace, called "Launchspace Technologies Corporation" (LTC).

This organization is focused on supporting commercial, civil and military activities in creating innovative new technologies and systems in order to strengthen and advance the exploitation of space for human advancement.

Although the name is new, it offers decades of relevant experience in all aspects of space flight systems, mission design and operations.

LTC already has discovered a new and cost effective approach to removing and controlling low Earth orbital (LEO) debris. This concept may well replace all other proposed remediation ideas.

Implementation will start with a feasibility study supported by one of the established space organizations.

A demonstration flight will follow feasibility confirmation. Finally, initial operations will reduce damaging debris objects to a level that assures the safe operations of active satellites in the 600 to 1200 km altitude range.

The Operational Remediation System (ORS) will sustain a controlled level of debris that is compatible with safe LEO operations.

Although the details of this new approach are not ready for public release, stay tuned over the next year for LTC announcements.
