Pathfinder delivers powerful foundational spaceflight safety capabilities to satellite operators with a focus on risk management.

Pathfinder is a comprehensive space situational awareness and spaceflight safety platform that allows satellite operators to effectively track, organize, and manage the risk of conjunctions to their fleet.

Capabilities

Conjunction Notification and Assessment

Pathfinder detects possible conjunctions, actively notifies operators about the upcoming high-risk events, and provides an in-depth conjunction analysis report. Pathfinder supports a growing list of notification options, including SMS, Email, Slack, and Mattermost.

Autonomous Collision Avoidance

If an avoidance maneuver is required to reduce the risk of collision, Pathfinder autonomously generates impulsive, low thrust, and differential drag maneuver options that are safe to perform. Pathfinder-recommended maneuvers are ready to be executed because they are designed to be within operators' physics-based and operational constraints.

Rapid Screening

High-fidelity, rapid, and full-featured screening of trajectories is available against the precise space object catalog or custom element sets. Pathfinder Rapid Screening is capable of performing many vs. many space objects screening. Users can submit maneuver plans, ephemerides, state vectors, TLEs, and SP trajectories to be screened for potential conjunctions.

Pathfinder open-source SDK is a convenient way to access application services programmatically. Integrate Pathfinder services into your operational processes natively, locally, or in-cloud.
