The study is also assessing the potential to bring POLSA entities for possible inclusion in the development of future technologies and techniques for space and satellite and suggestions for the development of the necessary legal solutions in national and international aspect.
- The study should provide a global knowledge on the development prospects of currently used techniques and technologies and the emergence of new solutions in nine key areas related to the segment of the space - says Col. Peter Suszyński, p.o. Vice President Polish Defense Space Agency. - On the basis of the development we will be able to precisely identify opportunities for Polish industry, identify areas of space activities in which national actors have a chance to appear on the international arena and effectively recommend entrepreneurs directions of investment, which should concentrate to develop its activities in the field of space.
So far, Poland Space Agency commissioned an initial feasibility studies for 3 projects: Astronomical satellite observation band UV (in May 2016. - Centre for astronomical them. Nicolaus Copernicus, Polish Academy of Sciences), Architecture system awareness in the area of space in Poland, with a special focus subsystem observation and tracking of space objects (in March 2016. - the company Astri Poland Sp. z.o.o) and Satellite radar imaging system (in December 2015. - the company PZL "Warszawa-Okecie" SA).
