Caption: SSA space hazard programme. Computer artwork showing the three main 'segments', or areas of activity, of SSA (Space Situational Awareness): space surveillance and tracking of debris objects (SST, centre), detection of space weather (SWE, upper right) and searching for near-Earth objects (NEOs, lower left). SSA is a system of radars, telescopes and networks on the ground that can work in unison to detect these space hazards. The programme is being used to help Europe detect hazards to critical space infrastructure.
