ABOUT

Who are we

Share My Space is a French New Space startup founded in 2017 after Damien and Romain won one of the first startup weekends dedicated to space. Today, we are the only independent private company in Europe with a holistic offering in the Space Situational Awareness domain. Our activities include the detection of objects in orbit, their cataloging, the real-time update of the catalog, and advanced data processing. We are 10 people with various backgrounds ranging from astronomy to full-stack development and industrial project management, and we are all committed to enable the future of human kind in outer space.

Pioneering New Space Surveillance

Only 3% of orbital objects are tracked. More than 8,500 tons of space debris are orbiting the Earth, resulting in a dangerous environment for satellites to navigate in. Only 20,000 pieces of debris are currently referenced by a single information source: the US Air Force. We are pioneering new observation technology with our telescopes, to enable wide coverage and cataloguing of these risks.

Our goal

At Share My Space, our goal is to help space actors address and reduce collision risks, by providing a tailored service line for each of our customers. These services are based on our independent detection capability and our recognized data fusion know-how which combines advanced orbital mechanics and machine learning. Share My Space aims to track 100,000 objects by 2023, providing an alternative and independent source of information.

Our values

We believe that we have an active role to play in promoting guidelines and best practices for a sustainable use of space. As a leading actor of the Greenspace, we work hard every day to limit and ultimately reduce the impact of Human activities on the orbital environment. Through our services, our customers can avoid useless maneuvers, save precious fuel, and therefore increase the lifespan of their satellites and reduce their environmental footprint.
