The NEEMO – Mobile Observatory project – for monitoring near-earth objects has come to an end. WING was the projects coordinator in the STAR Research, Development and Innovation Program and took place in 2017-2019.

The NEEMO project aims to make the prototype of a mobile optical field instrument for the observation of interplanetary space near Earth. The scientific objectives of the project are aimed at geointersected asteroids and artificial objects, as well as the prevention of natural hazards. The project will contribute to the realization of specific observation facilities in Romania in direct relation with the Space Situational Awareness program of the European Space Agency.
