Space Signatures for Rapid Unambiguous Identification of Satellites
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Providing rapid and reliable positive identification of individual satellites on orbit is necessary for timely space situational awareness (SSA). Currently, objects are frequently lost and sometimes by chance reacquired without recognition of its previous catalog existence unless manpower-intensive analysis intervenes to identify the historic lineage. Oceanit proposes to develop a methodology to rapidly identify objects using automated recognition algorithms that identify important features using multi-spectral signature analysis. Oceanit also proposes to proactively maintain custody of a large majority of satellites by predicting maneuvers given their historic orbital data.
