American scientists are working on miniature satellites, which will assume the role of space police. This will help avoid a collision of satellites and space debris .

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, Lawrence (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, LLNL) experienced ground-based system to demonstrate the possibility of adjusting the path of movement of other satellites in Earth orbit. In the future, it will organize the movement of spacecraft in near-Earth space, reports the American news agency United Press International.

The mission, dubbed STARE (Space-Based Telescopes for Actionable Refinement of Ephemeris), involves the creation of a group of tiny satellites in low orbit to correct the trajectory of motion of space objects in near-Earth space.

Our satellite will circle the orbit and observe the movement of other satellites, helping to prevent the collision of spacecraft and orbital debris – said researcher Lance Simms, project participant STARE.

During the ground test team of scientists from Livermore was possible to adjust the satellite’s orbit and NORAD 27006 predict the trajectory of motion in the next 36 hours with an accuracy of less than 50 meters. According to the researchers, the mission STARE will be used the same tools and data analysis system.

Thus, the existing network monitoring outer space (Space Surveillance Network) is able to detect the exact location of objects in low-Earth orbit radius of one kilometer. This imprecision often leads to false alarms.

STARE mission aims to improve the accuracy of detection of space objects in Earth orbit, and thereby reduce the number of false alarms.
