ESA BR-333 CleanSat
Satellite designs must evolve because space is becoming increasingly crowded. ESA’s CleanSat programme seeks to develop technologies that will enable future satellites to comply with national and international regulations on space debris, giving Europe’s space industry an international competitive advantage.
CleanSat is developing ‘building blocks’ that employ innovative technologies to meet space debris mitigation requirements, and that can be adopted on a systematic basis by a variety of different satellite platforms. Read online
