Special risks analysis for spacecraft and constellations


Stellar Project offers a unique consultancy service to analyze the risk of mission deterioration for spacecraft and constellations exposed to the current orbital environment, with special focus to the threat posed by space debris and space weather. Environment analyses are coupled with the examination of spacecraft design reports provided by manufacturers, in order to derive realistic predictions and/or assessments of satellite anomalies, useful for the Space Insurance market.

Because of the growing interest in large constellation of small satellites, the risk related to space debris and space radiation is going to be better perceived day by day. The debris population in Earth orbits is in fact continuously increasing, and the robustness of nanosatellites to the radiation, plasma and neutral environments is still not at the same level of that of large spacecraft. In respect of these threats, Stellar Project provides advice to operators willing to maximize the environmental robustness of their space systems since early design stages.
