On January 26, 2023, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Space Commerce (OSC) released a Request for Information on Scope of Civil Space Situational Awareness Services (RFI).
The RFI seeks industry input on the proposed capabilities of the space situational awareness (SSA) service OSC expects to provide, such as warnings of potential collisions, launch collision avoidance screenings, and forecasting object reentries. OSC will use the feedback provided in the RFI process to develop the SSA safety service.
RFI responses are due on or before February 27, 2023. Additional information about the RFI is provided here. If you are interested in submitting comments, please contact the authors or any member of our Telecommunications team.
