Advanced Sensors and Techniques
Our researchers develop and operate sensor systems that discover, track, and characterize satellites in earth orbit to support national security space objectives. Our primary focus is on sensors that provide robust, 24/7, all-weather capability that persists despite hostile actions. We develop data-exploitation and schedule-optimization techniques that operate, in real time, on our own sensors and other space-based and ground-based sensors, including the entire U.S. Space Surveillance Network. Our operators work closely with the military personnel who run national security space missions providing the research staff with an in-house opportunity to test their systems and techniques in a real-world environment.
