Space Situational Awareness (#AFSpaceSA)
June 19-23, 2017
Project: How might the Air Force best use commercial, academic, and foreign data of space situational awareness (SSA) to improve awareness of movements and threats to U.S. military satellites?
Why did participants get involved?
- Overcome classification, communications/data compatibility, legal, and segregation issues
- Share “non-traditional” data; open source, commercial, foreign
- Better understand technology and policy limitations while formulating solutions
Industry participants included: Foresite, JHU APL, AFIT, Chandah Space Tech, ViaSat, Applied Defense, MapR, McNew Associates, IBM, and GTRI
Participants heard from guest speakers visiting from Applied Defense, Leolabs Inc., and AFIT.
