  1. Agents and Avatars in the Aerospace Operations Center in Support of Combat Operations

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For efficient space operations, and for effective space force enhancement to terrestrial forces, Aerospace Operations Center (AOC) personnel must be continuously aware of the status of on-orbit assets, payload coverage, reacting to system degradations andfailures, and responding to intolerant environments for satellites. To complete the situational awareness picture, there is also the need to depi ...
