Australian Engineers Created Space Shooting System To Prevent Satellite Collisions

Inspired by nature and biology, scientists have developed the first dynamic visualization system, which not only works faster and more efficiently existing in the market of systems, but also uses much less energy.

This ability to overcome the limitations of existing visualization systems appeared thanks to the unique design of Astrosite. As one of the developers of the Greg Cohen project (Greg Cohen) asserts, the creators were inspired by the human eye device, the actual photodetectors in the retina and how they send information: they do not photograph validity, but only fix changes. The first Public Presentation of Astrosite should take place on the air show in Avalona (Australia).

"The potential use of this technology is infinite. The system can monitor the satellites and warn in advance of possible collisions, to conduct daytime shooting of objects at a low near-earth orbit, facilitate visualization in low visibility conditions, monitor the space garbage and provide high-speed object tracking, "Researchers say.

ICNS Director Professor Andre Van Shayk is confident that this innovative technology can be the key to improving security in space. The project is also interested in the Royal Australian Air Force, RAAF, whose representatives provide support to developers.
