Space Debris – Firecat and ARO

The ARO and Firecat projects are Redmoon’s  investment in  the Space Debris Sector.

ARO is an inexpensive ground-based observation node for space debris tracking. It provides a pathway for the US Space Force to work with the amateur astronomy community in RSO (resident space object) data collection.

Firecat is a cubesat mission which performs spectral characterization and mapping of resident space debris. It provides augmented capabilities to the government and private industry for RSO monitoring.
