The Space Control mission develops technology that enables the nation's space surveillance system to meet the challenges of space situational awareness. Lincoln Laboratory works with systems to detect, track, and identify man-made satellites; performs satellite mission and payload assessment; and investigates technology to improve monitoring of the space environment, including space weather and atmospheric and ionospheric effects. The technology emphasis is the application of new components and algorithms to enable sensors with greatly enhanced capabilities and to support the development of net-centric processing systems for the nation's Space Surveillance Network.
