Monday’s Yomiuri front-paged a JAXA decision to produce a high-performance radar that can detect and monitor space debris as small as 10 centimeters in diameter so as to prevent it from colliding with satellites. In operating the new radar beginning in FY2023, the space agency is hoping to collaborate with the Defense Ministry, which plans to operate a similar radar of its own, to ensure that Japanese satellites can be safeguarded in space without relying on the space debris surveillance system managed by the U.S.
