Astroscale Japan’s ADRAS-J (Active Debris Removal by Astroscale-Japan) spacecraft is to demonstrate the core technologies to be used for Active Debris Removal missions.
ADRAS-J was selected by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) for Phase I of its Commercial Removal of Debris Demonstration Project (CRD2), one of the world’s first technology demonstrations of removing large-scale debris from orbit.
ADRAS-J aims to demonstrate proximity operations and obtain images of a rocket body, delivering observational data to better understand the debris environment.
