Robotic Telescopes for NEOs and Space Debris

Robotic telescopes are astronomical telescope and detector systems which do not require human intervention for their operation. On December 22nd ESA issued an Invitation to Tender (P3-SST-III for Robotic Telescopes Demonstration – AO9061) to support the deployment of interfaces to existing robotic telescopes and demonstrate the robustness of remote automated operations.

Quasar Science Resources is part of the Consortium of the project P3-NEO-XII to provide the European Space Agency with a Telescope data processing chain. Quasar provides the expertise in the definition of the requirements for ESA’s telescope NEOSTEL. The goal of the NEOSTEL project is to create a ground-based network of telescopes for Near Earth Objects observation in the frame of ESA/EU Space Situational Awareness Programme.

Quasar is also part of the project P3-SST-III for Robotic Telescopes Demonstration. It is a project for the deployment of interfaces to robotic telescopes, ensuring their autonomous operations. Quasar is in charge of the development of the scheduling software for ESA’s Test-Bed Telescopes and also gives local support in the use of the Cebreros telescope.

The Consortium is led by the companies:
