In this episode of ORBITAL RENDEZVOUS, Interstellar Editor Prof. Chaitanya Giri interviews Air. Cmde. Terry van Haren (Retd.), President of LeoLabs Australia. LeoLabs, a commercial space situational awareness company, was recently in the news when its global array of ground-based radars detected a Chinese spy reusable spaceplane carrying out rendezvous and proximity operations with another object, demonstrating in-orbit propulsive activity, formation flying, change of altitude and docking. Interstellar interviews van Haren where he speaks about the significant capabilities of the Chinese spaceplane, the abilities of LeoLabs to detect such rendezvous and proximity operations, the significance of a commercial company bringing transparency to largely unnoticeable military operations in space, and what if LeoLabs finds a competitor of Chinese origin?
