A CubeSat formation for space debris characterisation (QBDebris)

QBDebris at the NEO and debris detection conference 2023

The QBDebris project was represented at ESA's 2nd NEO and debris detection conference in January 2023.

The conference was hosted by ESA at their ESOC operations centre in Darmstadt, Germany, and focused on recent progress made by exploring the synergies between space debris and NEO search programmes, telescopes and radar systems, observation techniques, data processing approaches and the standardisation of data exchange.

Pål Gunnar and Juha presented the QBDebris project with the paper:
