Although often overshadowed by a focus on security concerns, Space weather and NEOs are important elements of Europe’s SSA program.
The Space Weather (SWE) and Near Earth Object (NEO) components of Europe’s Space Situational Awareness (SSA) program usually receive scant attention. Indeed, the vast majority of analyses of SSA focus on man-made threats (i.e. security-related aspects such as space debris or transparency and confidence-building measures (TCBM)). Additionally, SWE and NEO threats are more often associated with science fiction than with serious policy-making.
