About PODET

Space situational awareness (SSA) is an increasing concern among space actors, and academics as well as space agencies and industry are devoting more and more resources to the subject.

The PODET project, driven by IMCCE, laboratory of the Paris Observatory, aims at aggregating available data about near earth objects, developing better algorithms and models to predict their behavior, developing analysis tools, and make the data and tools available to the community.

The objective of PODET, when complete, is to provide operational tools for collisions warning systems. Such an ambitious objective requires pushing further the current modelization state of the art, in order to achieve sufficient data quality and precision.
