Abstract
The foundation of any counterspace capability is space/counterspace situation awareness. Existing AFRL/VS funded efforts have established a foundation for robust, multi-level situation awareness through multi-source, multi-level, data fusion. However, situation awareness is only useful to the extent that it informs response to threats, whether natural or man-made. AFRL/VS Space Awareness & Response Research (SARR) team developed data-fusion capabilities are now mature enough to serve as the starting point for the development of a similar technical foundation for response management. CleverSet proposes to develop and demonstrate a comprehensive architecture for Level 0 – 3 response management. We propose to apply the combined expertise of CleverSet, Charles River Analytics (CRA), and DF&NN to the development of a comprehensive response-management architecture for defensive counterspace. Extension of prior work to include integrated response management will enable timely response that enhances satellite and ground system security and stability, improves and refines situation awareness, and protects mission capability. Phase I results will include validated response management conops and requirements, a comprehensive architecture for multi-level space/counterspace response management, and a demonstration that instantiates selected elements of the architecture.
