Space Situational Awareness Improvements

Effective space situational awareness faces the challenges of bringing together observations from disparate sensors and sources, developing computationally efficient dynamic propagation schemes, and formulating accurate estimation methods for the purpose of quantifying and qualifying space-based activities. The goal of this effort is to improve knowledge of current and future behavior of space objects by reducing the associated uncertainties. This project will improve, develop, and test software, hardware, and information fusion plans to produce accurate, autonomous, and near real-time understanding of objects in the operational space environment to promote orbital safety and evaluate debris threat mitigation schemes. This will require coordination with various organizations in civil, commercial, and military space sectors.
