Stratcom, Denmark Agree to Exchange Info & Services for Space Situational Awareness

The U.S. Strategic Command and Denmark’s defense ministry have signed an agreement to exchange space situational awareness data and services.

The deal expands the number of Stratcom’s global SSA data-sharing partners that include 13 other countries, two intergovernmental bodies and more than 65 commercial satellite operators, the U.S. Air Force said Wednesday.

Maj. Gen. Nina Armagno, director of plans and policy at Stratcom, said cooperation between the U.S. and its allies is key to maintain SSA effectiveness.

“The space domain is a global resource that is best protected and managed collectively,” Armagno added.

SSA data-sharing pacts work to increase multinational cooperation and expedite the process for the command’s partners to obtain information from the 18th Space Control Squadron at Vandenberg AF Base in California.

Participants can use the information to plan satellite maneuvers, assess on-orbit conjunctions, report and investigate electromagnetic interference, decommission satellites and manage on-orbit anomalies.
