Lumi Space: The company is developing laser ranging technology to again spot, characterise and precisely track objects in orbit.
A UK start-up company is developing ground-based laser technology that can pinpoint, down to the centimetre, the exact distance between Earth and a satellite in low earth orbit. 

Previous idea: We use modern laser technology to provide power to satellites from Earth. Lumi Space will power satellites from Earth, adding to what they receive from the Sun. This means that satellite batteries can be charged by a focused laser from Earth, even when the solar panels aren’t in direct sunlight. This has many important advantages such as night operations, reduced costs and more timely data acquisition and transmission. By being part of the Call to Orbit programme, Lumi Space will be able to expedite its research and testing, and start designing a test mission in space, on the versatile and easy-to-use Open Cosmos integration platforms. This partnership with a satellite manufacturer and operator allows them to test their concepts with flight-ready hardware.
