New Isro sy em to shield its assets from space debris



NEW DELHI: Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is setting up a network of telescopes and radar to develop its own sy em to mon or space debris to safeguard its space assets. The network will be set up under the Directorate of Space Situational Awareness and Management. Currently, Isro has 50 functional satellites, including communication, navigation and surveillance satellites, in space.


Talking to TOI, Isro chairman K Sivan said, “Till now, Isro was dependent on Norad (North America Aerospace Defense Command) data, which is available in public domain, for kee track of space debris and mon oring our active and passive (dead) satellites. However, this global data is not accurate. Norad also keeps accurate data, which is exclusively available to those that are members of its network. Therefore, Isro can’t access this data.”

Isro主席K Sivan在接受《印度时报》采访时表示:“到目前为止,Isro一直依赖北美防空司令部(Norad)的数据来跟踪太空碎片,并印度的主动和被动(废弃)卫星。然而,这些全球公开的数据并不准确。北美防空司令部也掌握准确数据,这些数据只对其网络成员开放,Isro无法获取。”

To get accurate data about the movement of space debris to avoid collision with its satellites, Isro has decided to set up telescopes and radars in four corners of the country.


“Our sophisticated multi-object tracking radar installed in Nellore (90km from Sriharikota) will be part of this project. We will also set up a telescope in Ponmudi (Thiruvananthapuram) and second one in Mount Abu (Rajasthan) and third one in deep north. We will also install a radar in the northeast,” Sivan told TOI, adding, “Once this network is operational, we will be able to get accurate data on space debris and will also become part of the global network where we can access very accurate data on debris from hundreds of radars set up across the world.” The directorate would mon or inactive satellites, pieces of orbiting objects, near-earth asteroids and adverse space weather conditions.

K Sivan对《印度时报》表示:“我们安装在Nellore(距离Sriharikota 90公里)的多目标跟踪雷达将是这个项目的一部分。我们还将在Ponmudi (特里凡得琅)、阿布山(Rajasthan)和北方分别安装一个望远镜。我们还将在东北部安装雷达。一旦这个网络开始运作,我们将能够获得有关太空碎片的准确数据,我们也将成为全球网络的一部分。在全球网络中,我们可以从世界各地数百个雷达获得有关碎片的精准数据。”

It is required as its been many years and so many satellites are just rotating over there. Should check if there is a possibility to bring them back down.
