Avanti joins international coalition seeking to improve space safety

London, UK, 14th October 2019

Avanti joined the Space Safety Coalition (SSC), an ad-hoc coalition of companies, organisations and other government and industry stakeholders seeking to improve space safety.

The SSC actively promotes responsible space safety through the adoption of relevant international standards, guidelines and practices, and the development of more effective space safety guidelines and best practices.

Space safety includes physical safety, communications safety and space weather awareness:

Avanti maintains leadership in responsible spacecraft operations by going above and beyond the existing international guidelines and standards for mitigating orbital debris. By voluntary adopting the Best Practices for the Sustainability of Space Operations promoted by the SSC, Avanti not only contributes to the safety of all space assets (both Avanti and none Avanti owned), but also provides the highest-level guarantees to customers of its commercial spacecraft operations services.
