The United States has said that the issue of space debris is an important concern and it has taken note of the Indian government's statements that its recently conducted anti-satellite test (A-SAT) was created to address "space debris issues", according to US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino.
"The mission had been designed in a away that debris decays very fast and that minimal debris goes up", G. Satheesh Reddy, head of India's Defence Research and Development Organisation told reporters. The NASA on Tuesday termed as a disgusting thing India's shooting down of one of its satellites which have created about 400 pieces of orbital scraps, endangering ISS. The high risk is in the first 10 days, that time frame gets over today. "Some of the debris have already decayed".
The DRDO chief also said that the interceptor missile used in "Mission Shakti" has a range of more than 1000km but the interception was deliberately done at a range of 283km to ensure the safety of space assets.
"We have no option but to clear space debris from Low Earth Orbit", says ClearSpace CEO Luc Piguet in a statement published by EPFL on Friday.
He also responded to a question on Congress leader P Chidambaram's criticism of the government on the test, who had said that "only a foolish government" would reveal a defence secret. All critical technologies for the test were developed indigenously and about 90% of the entire test in indigenous, Dr. Reddy added. "The satellite is tracked by many stations across the world".

The other countries with such capability are the US, Russia and China. About 2,000 components were sourced from 50 private industries.
Asked if India has informed United States of America or other nations about the test, Saran admitted that India was "in touch" with other space powers. "We have had several statements from the USA, as far as India is concerned the official position is contained in the State Department statement".
