In this episode of the podcast IDA Ideas, host Rhett Moeller speaks to Daniel Pechkis, Jason Sheldon, and Stephen Ouellette about how they and others at IDA are helping to improve predictions about the orbital debris environment using satellite movement data. Many of the discussion topics arose during the IDA Forum on Orbital Debris Risks and Challenges, held on October 8–9, 2020, which was attended by IDA researchers and decision makers from the Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, Department of Commerce, NASA, Federal Aviation Administration, and Federal Communications Commission.
