In 2014, the Decision of the European Parliament and the Council Establishing a Space Surveillance and Tracking Support Framework was adopted. The aims of the SST Support Framework are to help project European and national space infrastructure, facilities, and services by:
- Assessing and reducing the risks to in-orbit operations of European spacecraft from collisions;
- Reducing the risks relating to the launch of European spacecraft;
- Surveying and providing early warning of uncontrolled re-entries of spacecraft or space debris;
- Seeking to prevent the proliferation of space debris.
