ISS stands ready to assist the Air Force space community in defining the future of net-centric Space Situational Awareness systems. Our JSARS work is just the beginning of several key projects ISS will be executing in the SSA business area. We look to expand our market leadership in this area of technology development critical to our nations defense.

Intelligent Software Solutions has been chosen by the Air Force to continue its leadership role in defining the future of Space Situational Awareness systems over the coming year. Work planned for this year will expand upon research and development efforts undertaken over the past year. Under an Air Force Research Laboratory initiative in 2007, ISS participated in the construction of the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) Situational Assessment and Reporting System (JSARS). This system integrated a variety of disparate space-related sensors at the JSpOC at Vandenberg AFB, CA. The data from these sensors was fused into a cohesive Space Situational Awareness (SSA) picture for visualization by operators and decision makers at the JSpOC. After a successful integration at JSpOC, and demonstrations for LtGen William Shelton (14 AF Commander and Joint Functional Component Commander (JFCC) for Space) and Gen Kevin Chilton (Commander, United States Strategic Command), JSARS officially transitioned to Air Force Space and Missile Center, as a part of the Rapid Attack Identification, Detection, and Reporting System (RAIDRS).
In preparation for the upcoming RAIDRS Block 20 program procurement, ISS will assist in extending JSARS for deployment on additional DoD networks and integration of additional data sources. This risk reduction activity is formally known as the RAIDRS Block (RB20) 20 Pilot. The original JSARS system was redesignated RAIDRS Block 20 Increment 0. During the coming year ISS will continue to work with AFRL to deploy RB20 Increments 1 and 2.
According to Dr. David Rodvold, ISS Principal Engineer for Space Programs, “ISS stands ready to assist the Air Force space community in defining the future of net-centric Space Situational Awareness systems. Our JSARS work is just the beginning of several key projects ISS will be executing in the SSA business area. We look to expand our market leadership in this area of technology development critical to our nations defense.”
