This concept arises from the concern about the high amount of material deployed in the atmosphere, commonly but not exclusively referred to as space debris.

In this context, observation through specialized instruments emerges as a key alternative to gather essential information, such as the precise location of objects in space. This knowledge is crucial for making informed decisions regarding exploration and activities related to the space domain.

The principal contribution that can be made from optoelectronics, is the development of improved instruments. Innovation in this field not only enables surveillance of space objects but also drives significant advances in effectively addressing the challenge of space debris.
