CGI, RAF and UK Space Agency deploy AURORA software
The UK Space Agency, RAF and CGI deployed new tracking and surveillance software across the UK’s space assets this month.
IT consulting firm CGI teamed up with the RAF and UK Space Agency to execute and implement the first round of AURORA software across the UK’s space assets.
AURORA is set to improve the tracking and surveillance capabilities of the UK’s Space Operations Centre, and will ensure that the UK Space Agency is able to maintain observational awareness over the threat of debris.
“The AURORA software will form a crucial part of our national space surveillance and tracking capability and be used by our analysts to monitor the increasing hazard of orbital debris,” said Graham Turnock, CEO of the UK Space Agency.
“CGI started working with the RAF back in 2016 and we are proud to continue to work collaboratively with the MOD and UK Space Agency to deliver the AURORA capability in the MOD cloud environment,” said Neil Timms, senior vice president for UK and Australia space defence and intelligence at CGI.
