There are currently about 26,000 objects in space, created by humanity, being tracked, out of roughly 500,000 that could cause the loss, disruption, or degradation of critical space-based services and capabilities we all depend upon. Add to that the fact that there is apparently a lot of money to be made from space services and so there is a new space race, with a planned 15,000 more satellites to be launched in the next five years, almost doubling the current space objects databases. Unfortunately, although we launch satellites into specific “space highways” we don’t have space traffic rules. How can software, algorithms, sensors, and data science/analytics keep up the pace with reality to deliver on space safety, security, and sustainability?
