EOS Space Systems leading the way with SSA

Electro Optic Systems (EOS) is a well-known name in the defence industry, but the Aussie company has been kicking goals as an unrivalled power player in space situational awareness (SSA) operating at home and abroad.

Founded in 1983, EOS has developed systems for astrodynamic analysis, ground to space tracking of orbiting bodies and satellite laser ranging.

The company's heritage allows for the development of new technologies in support of space debris management and asset management in space, including orbit maintenance support.

Craig Smith, CEO EOS Space Systems told Space Connect, "EOS started as a space company in 1983, then in the mid 1990s the company split into the two branches: Space and Defence."
