Cleaning Outer Space Mission through Innovative Capture

Astroscale's Cleaning Outer Space Mission through Innovative Capture (COSMIC) is set to utilize the company's rendezvous and proximity operations (RPO) and robotic debris capture capabilities to remove two inactive British satellites from Earth's orbit by 2026.

This new debris removal service builds upon the success of ELSA-M, a commercial partnership between Astroscale, the European and UK Space Agencies, and global satellite operator OneWeb, which leverages technology developed during the ELSA-d in-orbit demonstration.

To further facilitate the development of COSMIC, Astroscale will be designing and integrating the mission at their Zeus satellite integration and operations facilities located at the Harwell Science & Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire, UK.

This endeavor is part of Astroscale's efforts to stimulate the growth of the on-orbit commercial servicing economy, creating new job opportunities, enhancing national capability, and establishing world-leading facilities in the UK.
