FRANKFURT, Germany — A consortium led by ArianeGroup with satellite fleet operator Eutelsat and image-processing expert Magellium will start work on space situational awareness camera placed on a Eutelsat satellite in geostationary orbit, likely as a hosted payload, or in geostationary transfer orbit as a dedicated small satellite.

The consortium, which includes camera builder Sodern, is one of five that were selected in December to develop different space situational awareness (SSA) systems under the France 2030 public investment program: become a subscriber!
