The population of active satellites in space is set to multiply. More and more countries and private operators are building and operating spacecraft. Around 90 countries are active in space while, according to the United Nations, the private sector is leading 70% of space activity. New technologies and manufacturing processes are also paving the way for more diverse space applications.
New satellite constellations that deliver global services – like Earth observation, internet connectivity and voice communications – are among the technologies leading change in space. Lower orbits in particular are becoming increasingly populated and also littered with debris, putting vital satellite operations at risk of collision. What will such deployments mean for the space environment and existing satellite operations? And what impact will the rapidly increasing orbital debris population have on these constellations?
These are some of the questions we consider in our latest publication: New space, new dimensions, new challenges. A sequel to our first publication on the subject Space debris: On collision course for insurers? in 2011, we focus on satellite constellations and how they're impacting the space environment. Find out more about how you can navigate the increasingly complex and rapidly evolving space risk landscape.
