Analysis Service

The proper application of the models, which describe the particulate environment of the Earth and it’s potential effects on spacecraft, and the tools based on these models is an expert task. It requires a sound technical and theoretical background, experience in the application of tools and especially the knowledge and ability to interpret and explain the results provided. We offer to provide this know-how to your project, performing the assessment for you by our experienced staff.

Our heritage includes

Participation in the development of ESA’s
Space Debris Mitigation Handbook

Participation in the development of
DRAMA – ESA’s Debris Risk Assessment
and Mitigation Analysis tool

Many risk assessment consultancies
for European Space Industry

Participation in the development of ESA’s
MASTER (Meteoroid and Space Debris
Terrestrial Environment Reference)

Development of ESABASE2 – ESA’s
standard risk assessment tool

Our impact risk assessment services include
