collaborative platform

Communication and data platform for space actors worldwide

Sharing data icon

Data exchange

Spacetalk enables the exchange of high-quality data among all space actors globally but does not provide collision analysis itself. This includes Space Situational Awareness data and Space Traffic Management entities details, empowering each actor to conduct its own assessments.

Coordination icon

Coordination

Designated and responsive Points of Contact are assigned to each space object, streamlining direct coordination among space actors. This is implemented through a meticulously maintained Directory of space actors and Inventory of space objects, ensuring comprehensive and up-to-date information.

Orbital safety icon

Orbital Safety as a common need

Preventing collisions and mitigating space debris by pooling resources – such as space debris data, trajectory information, space object status, and manoeuvres intentions – that can be shared among all space stakeholders worldwide.

Transparency icon

Transparency

The management of the platform remains neutral and transparent, emphasising the importance of fostering the broadest international dialogue without discrimination in order to target a 100% coverage of all space objects. Dynamic communication models with open interfaces enable each space actor to utilise its own standards and languages. Enhancing states’ visibility into the space activities of private actors within their responsibilities.
