ISS Awarded Space Situational Awareness Research and Development Contract

Share Article

Intelligent Software Solutions has been awarded an Air Force contract to improve predictive conjunction analysis in the space situational awareness (SSA) domain. The research and development effort will provide a reduction in processing time providing space operators with more timely alerts about possible future satellite collisions.

Now more than ever, augmenting our nation's SSA through improved predictive conjunction analysis is critical to our country's continued space superiority. This award will allow the Air Force to acquire critical new capabilities that will advance their ability to meet requirements for improved SSA.

Intelligent Software Solutions has been awarded an Air Force contract to improve predictive conjunction analysis in the space situational awareness (SSA) domain. The research and development effort will provide a reduction in processing time providing space operators with more timely alerts about possible future satellite collisions.

The SSA provided by Continuous Anomalous Orbital Situation Discriminator or CAOS-D program will focus on adapting existing algorithms for use on a modern parallel architecture in order to reduce the time required for space operators to receive reports about possible future collisions.

ISS will be joined in this research effort by partners Data Fusion and Neural Networks (DF&NN). The effort will leverage DF&NN's subject matter expertise in astrodynamics.

Dr. Dave Rodvold, ISS Director of Space Programs observed, "Now more than ever, augmenting our nation's SSA through improved predictive conjunction analysis is critical to our country's continued space superiority. This award will allow the Air Force to acquire critical new capabilities that will advance their ability to meet requirements for improved SSA."
