UK joins new space partnership

The UK has joined forces with Australia, Canada and the US to share expertise and resources dedicated to space operations. 

The space partnership nations will be able to share knowledge and resources in areas such as space situational awareness to assure access to and enhance space capabilities.

In a joint statement, the partners have proposed to ‘co-operate on activities such as identifying and understanding what objects are in space, ensuring uninterrupted satellite operations, and the avoidance of satellite collisions’.

The statement goes on to say that ‘such activities will make a significant contribution towards a safer and more secure space environment while also enhancing mutual security’.

The UK armed forces have an increasing reliance on space, making this partnership particularly vital to the way the Ministry of Defence does business.
