IEEC 4DCube third winner of the Open Cosmos, ESA Business Applications and ESA Space Solutions “Call to Orbit” competition

The third winner of the Call to Orbit competition is a space debris mapping project by the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC). The team of 4DCube are proposing an unprecedented approach to detect and track small-sized and composite debris, which pose a serious risk for orbiting spacecraft. These small pieces of space junk are not being detected by other debris-associated projects, while at the same time small debris is considered a major concern, due to their large number and their often significant orbital velocities.
