Ron Oholendt, the President of GNSS, in response to the award announcement said,
"This effort will build on many years of active collaboration between Australia and the U.S. in the area of space surveillance and debris tracking, including the development and testing of accurate and sensitive laser trackers for space debris.
Moving this capability from technology prototype to fully-automated operations could greatly benefit the Department of Defense, NASA
and other U.S. organizations
involved in space operations."
went on to state that EOS's
world-leading technology delivers an unprecedented level of detection sensitivity and tracking accuracy for very small objects in LEO (Low Earth Orbit) that is critical to many U.S. space missions.
