Complete Space Situational Awareness Solution
for Satellite Operators

Providing Trust and Transparency to Satellite Operators with Intuitive and Timely Collision Avoidance Warnings and Decision Guidance

Product You Can Trust

Rapid Response

Kayhan reduces the response time to potential satellite collisions by more than 95%.


Kayhan Cloud Infrastructure supports a large number of requests and computational loads by rapid horizontal expansion.

Constellation Solution

Kayhan enterprise solution deployed on a scalable cloud infrastructure is an effective platform for managing collision avoidance response to a large constellation of satellites.

Easily Accessible

Kayhan services are accessible from anywhere and any device, whether it is via the front end GUI or a large collection of API endpoints.

Protect Your Space Assets

Kayhan integrates with the most popular communication channels to ensure that satellite operators have the information they need at their fingertips.

The resident space object population size around Earth is increasing at an accelerated pace. Tracking and maintaining custody of these objects is quickly becoming an intractable problem. This issue will soon be exacerbated as more capable and stronger tracking systems become operational. Kayhan Satellite Collision Detection and Avoidance System ensures that satellite operators are aware of the collision threats, and provides them with clear and actionable avoidance recommendations.

Advanced Conjunction Assessment

Delivers intuitive satellite conjunction notifications in real-time to satellite operators through various channels such as secure email, SMS, and more. Performs autonomous in-depth statistical analysis and Monte Carlo simulations on the upcoming high-interest conjunction events, with recommendations for additional sensor tasking.


Autonomous Preemptive Collision Avoidance

Performs autonomous conjunction analysis based on satellite operators maneuver plans and recommends changes to the planned maneuver by minimizing the upcoming conjunctions.

Public Astrodynamics Utilities

Publicly available astrodynamics utilities accessible via APIs to perform various fundamental conversions, e.g. coordinate transformation, time conversions, orbital element conversations, and more.
