NSSA showcases Bahraini AI innovation

Dubai, April 18 (BNA): Bahrain’s National Space Science Agency (NSSA) has presented an innovative system for monitoring and tracking small space debris.

This came during the seventeenth session of the International Conference on Space Operations, which was hosted by the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center in the United Arab Emirates.

The conference witnessed a great turnout from various major space agencies and specialized international companies.

More than 1,200 people participated and the center witnessed the publication of more than 560 research papers.

Aerospace engineer Reem Senan participated in this conference with many scientific researches specialized in space technologies and systems and artificial intelligence.

Among the most prominent research papers specialized in employing artificial intelligence techniques in the process of automatic detection, monitoring and control of space debris in low Earth orbit using satellites.

The innovation is based on the use of nano-satellites that contain optical sensors by employing artificial intelligence algorithms to monitor and track space debris, as the accuracy of the system, according to experiments, reached 92%.

The innovation includes the ability to analyze data of observed objects in terms of their size and location and save them on board the spacecraft for transmission to satellite operators at ground stations.

It contributes to feeding the space debris database, especially those related to small-sized objects that are difficult to observe from Earth, the sustainability of space and ensuring everyone’s access to space, which is Bahrain’s contribution to the world to reduce the growing problem. .

Senan said that the innovation highlights the Kingdom’s efforts to preserve a space environment free of space debris and contributes to protecting the environment in general.

She emphasized that her research paper received great attention from experts and researchers participating in the conference, who praised the innovation for its importance in supporting international efforts to reduce the problem of space debris, which causes collisions between satellites and spacecraft, and may lead to collisions between satellites and spacecraft. Loss of a space mission and many dangers in orbit.

The conference is one of the major international conferences and one of the largest scientific forums specialized in the field of space, its research and innovations.

The conference is being held for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa region since its inception in 1990.
