Nikkei front-paged an article saying that the U.S. and Japan are set to coordinate to launch a “space traffic management” (STM) system designed to head off accidents and incidents involving satellites. The Commerce Department will reportedly build an information network to pinpoint the location of commercial satellites in outer space and the Japanese side will develop technology for removing space debris. The two nations also plan to join hands with the UK, France, and other European partners to establish an effective STM mechanism.
