In order for near-earth space to be safe, secure, and sustainable, we must gather a body of evidence for measurable transparency, accountability, and predictability! The need for Space Domain Awareness doesn’t end with quantifying collision risks, or even possible threats and hazards, but in monitoring resident space object behavior(s) in the context of space laws, policies, guidelines, etc. and providing independently corroborated evidence of compliance and non-compliance with these. If space laws are to be enforced, they must be measurable! We must be able to assess who complies or doesn’t. Only then is enforcement even possible! To that end we have taken initial pragmatic steps in quantifying compliance and non-compliance by evaluating resident space objects for UN COPUOS LTS Guidelines on GEO Disposal.
Can ASTRIAGraph be queried to address this assessment, and then can we scale this to others?
This ASTRIA web-based service allows you, any user, to do this assessment against GEO Disposal guidelines, as a proof of concept.
