[Press Release] OKAPI:Astrolabe: The revolution of real-time Maneuver Coordination

[Bremen, Germany – Tuesday 14 November 2023] – OKAPI:Orbits, a leader in Space Traffic Management, announced today the highly-anticipated launch of their latest innovation, OKAPI:Astrolabe. This ground-breaking product is set to transform critical Conjunction Coordination, delivering unprecedented convenience and efficiency to Satellite Operators worldwide.

Developed in collaboration with the European Space Agency, Astrolabe seamlessly blends interoperability and decision-making processes to provide an intuitive and direct communication experience. OKAPI:Astrolabe, when combined with OKAPI:Aether, offers all-inclusive services like automated assessments of conjunction event criticality, maneuver evaluation, in-depth insights about in-orbit assets, and predictive evolution forecasting in a consolidated workspace.

OKAPI:Astrolabe offers game-changing features:

  • Gain a comprehensive timeline view of current conjunctions, highlighting critical events, secondary object operator information, and key conjunction details.
  • Establish your tailored set of rules through collaborative negotiations in the event of a critical conjunction. These rules serve as a lifeline during the event and a strategic blueprint for future interactions with the same operator. Real-time access to synchronized information through event-driven data sharing is at your fingertips.
  • Automate processes seamlessly through the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Application Programming Interface (API).

“We are incredibly excited to introduce OKAPI:Astrolabe to the world,” said Kristina Nikolaus, CEO & Co-Founder of OKAPI:Orbits. “We believe this product will define the way Critical Close Approaches and potential Collisions are coordinated. Its innovation, quality, and performance are unparalleled in our industry, and we can't wait for operators to experience its benefits.”

“Due to the increasing effort of coordination between satellite operators, the first of a kind fully automated solution that is OKAPI:Astrolabe, will take a huge burden from the operations team. With OKAPI:Astrolabe and OKAPI:Aether, OKAPI:Orbits enables the sustainable use of space in a seamless, cost-efficient way while at the same time applying the most innovative algorithms that exist to date”, said CTO & Co-Founder Christopher Kebschull. 

OKAPI:Astrolabe was launched at the Space Tech Expo in Bremen on the 14th of November and already has significant satellite operator demand.
