Space Control - Ensuring critical U.S. space activities

Space Systems and Technology

Ensuring critical U.S. space activities

We develop technology to meet the challenges of an increasingly congested and contested space domain. Our engineers design, prototype, operate, and assess systems that detect, track, identify, and characterize resident space objects. Given the potential for conventional conflict to extend to space, we conduct R&D on concepts and systems that will provide space mission resilience.
