Agilex Helps NASA Address Orbital Debris Threat

orbitaldebrisAgilex recently provided program support for the International Conference on Orbital Debris Removal, a program co-sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The conference assembled 300 scientists and researchers from around the world to “develop more pragmatic and effective strategies” for removing dangerous debris from earth’s orbit. Agilex guided the program’s development and execution in terms of agenda, presentations and speaker selection.

“As evident by the recent collision between an Iridium satellite and a non-operational Russian object, the threat of orbital debris is very real and growing rapidly, ” said Dr. Darren McKnight, chief scientific officer, Agilex Technologies, Inc.
