Revolutionising Space Traffic Management: The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Ensuring Safe and Efficient Space Operations
With an increasing number of satellites, space stations, and other spacecraft in orbit, the risk of collisions and other dangerous situations is also on the rise. However, artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionise space traffic management and make space operations safer and more efficient. The session will focus on the main advantages of AI in space traffic management, especially its ability to process large amounts of data in real-time. With sensors and other instruments constantly monitoring the position and trajectory of spacecraft in orbit, there is a wealth of data to be analysed. AI and Machine Learning algorithms can quickly analyse this data and provide satellite operators with recommendations and manoeuvring suggestions to avoid collisions and save costs.
