Space Debris Removal: Support with the Space Observation Radar TIRA

More and more debris is orbiting Earth - a serious threat to satellite missions. Space agencies are therefore making increasing efforts to reduce space debris. The space observation radar TIRA of Fraunhofer FHR, which is unique in Europe, can provide useful support in this process: For example, it provides data on how and at what speed the objects rotate and whether they are still intact.
