Privateer Space, the data and intelligence platform serving the future of space, today announced the launch of Crow’s Nest as part of the updated Wayfinder platform. Crow`s Nest is a free and open collision risk assessment tool that fully integrates with the Wayfinder app, a platform for real-time debris visualization and satellite data aggregation. These new tools are free to use without prior contact with the sales team and constitute the most complete platform accessible to all. These tools can be used by government agencies, corporations, non-profit organizations, universities or individuals to raise awareness and ensure global transparency of current space traffic. to keep the space safe and accessible.
“As the circular space economy continues to grow and is expected to reach $1 trillion by 2040, monitoring where satellites and spacecraft have been, are and will be crucial. Dr. Moriba Jah, co-founder and Principal Scientist at Privateer, said, “Crow’s Nest shields satellite operators, potentially preventing them from colliding with rockets and debris, to avoid disruptions disrupting space operations, while Wayfinder – with the capabilities Crow’s Nest Supplements – helps ensure that humanity has access to space as a finite resource, in perpetuity.
Crow`s Nest is a free tool that incorporates NASA’s CARA tools for probabilistic analysis combined with a free CDM download. This will allow users to have a better view of Crow’s Nest data and better understand if and when collisions will occur. In the near future, Crow`s Nest will also feature more robust orbital data feed integration, account login to access settings and saved lists, filtering, advanced risk analysis, and data access. API access. The roadmap also includes the ability to integrate Crow’s Nest with third-party tools to extend and personalize the user experience. While basic functionality will always be free, customers with more advanced customization needs and large volumes of data will pay for premium access through Amazon’s Marketplace.
Privateer’s data tool, Wayfinder, is an open access, near real-time visualization of satellites and debris in Earth orbit. Updated Wayfinder features quick search for specific objects, shortcuts to explore interesting visualizations, moth data download, and a new interface for a smooth and intuitive user experience, and more.
“Wayfinder is the leading platform for data aggregation and visualization of satellites, spacecraft and space debris. By adding collision probability and hazard index based on NASA standards, they can create a space ecosystem that works for everyone,” said Alex Fielding, co-founder and CEO of Privateer. “We hope the global space community can use and rely on Wayfinder to avoid collisions and conflicts, share vectors of status, signal intent more clearly, and maneuver safely in space.”
