Space Situational Awareness (SSA) refers to the knowledge of location and function of space objects and of the space environment, including operational satellites, space debris, near Earth objects and space weather. The development of a European SSA system will underpin the exploitation of European space assets, representing a key capability contributing to the autonomous access to space for Europe. [1] The European Union Satellite Centre (EU SatCen), through the "Support to Precursor space situational Awareness services" (SPA) project, has backed SSA activities in Europe by providing a set of suggestions and recommendations to support decision-making regarding the development of SSA Governance and Data Policy.
