The space environment is under-observed, exposing satellites to safety and security risks. Our Vyoma Preventive Space Solutions are addressing this issue. With our space-based telescopes, surveying resident space across all altitudes, no more blind spots remain. Combined with on-board processing and affordable inter-satellite communications, observations can be downlinked in near real-time. By sharing the data with trusted partners, information about space objects can be fused and validated, allowing us to build an accurate and updated digital twin of the space population. With our proposed solutions, anomalies such as manoeuvres and newly inserted objects in orbit are detected within the hour, enabling safe – and secure – space operations.
