New Zealand Space Agency
No other country does space quite like New Zealand.
Astroscale signed an agreement with the government of New Zealand Nov. 10 to study advanced concepts for orbital debris removal.
LeoLabs and the New Zealand Space Agency (NZSA) are working together to develop a cloud-based software platform for monitoring space activity.
The New Zealand Space Agency established in 2016 is moving quickly to develop a comprehensive strategy reflecting its priorities including sustainability, agility and collaboration.
The cloud-based Space Regulatory and Sustainability Platform relies on information from LeoLabs’ network of phased-array radars to tracks debris and satellites in low Earth orbit. The mapping and software platform then analyses the data to ensure satellites launched from New Zealand are complying with licensing requirements.
