Edinburgh / Boulder, Colorado, 10 August 2022. – Kayhan Space unveiled its next-gen Pathfinder spaceflight safety platform which will enable satellite and mission operators to better manage operational risks and make precautionary maneuvers based on precision analytics to avoid collisions and congestion in space.

Operators such as Capella Space, Globalstar, and Lynk Global are among those already using Kayhan’s subscription-based, autonomous platform. Pathfinder was rolled out for general availability last week, following successful beta deployments.

The cloud-based service exploits advanced algorithms along with precise space catalog and GPS data, propulsion capabilities, and flight plans. The system simulates, coordinates, and generates optimal maneuver options in the event of a potential collision threat or conjunction, Kayhan said. The capability improves overall situational awareness in space.

Kayhan claims its Pathfinder is also suitable for optimizing revenue-generating missions by scheduling preemptive and preplanned maneuvers during operational downtimes. An advanced edition of the platform allows for precise orbit determination for accurate satellite trajectory predictions.

Kayhan’s spaceflight safety software solution can be used during the full mission lifecycle, from launch through in-orbit collision avoidance maneuvers, to decommissioning.

ZARM Study Discloses Increased Fire Risk on Space missions

A recent study from the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) at the University of Bremen has investigated the risk of fire on spacecraft. The results show that fires on planned exploration missions, such as a flight to Mars, could spread significantly faster than on the International Space Station (ISS). The ZARM research team has been experimenting with the propagation of fires in reduced gravity since 2016
