The SSA programme is enabling Europe to detect hazards to critical space and ground infrastructure. This artist's impression illustrates the three main 'segments', or areas of activity, for SSA: space surveillance and tracking of debris objects (SST), detechion of space weather (SWE) and searching for near-Earth objects (NEOs).
