On March 15th of 2019, the ESA Clean Space team will present the issue of space debris to the CubeSat community. The team invites you to register to this online event.

The aim of this webinar is to talk about solutions and potential technological improvements that could help CubeSat operators to be compliant with the space debris mitigation guidelines.

The use of CubeSats has skyrocketed in recent years, and this growth is expected to steeply increase in years to come. These satellites provide an affordable access to space, and pave the way for innovation and education.

However, out of concern for the growing problem posed by space debris, space-fairing nations and agencies have internationally created and adopted guidelines which promote a sustainable use of space.

The Space Debris Mitigation guidelines are applicable to every man-made object launched into orbit, including CubeSats.

These requirements constrain the design of missions. But they also provide opportunities to bring on the market innovative technologies to increase the flexibility of missions.

ESA Clean Space wish to be closer to the CubeSat community by opening channels of communication.
