Research Institution
"In response to Small Business Innovative Research solicitation A01-207, 21CSI is pleased to propose the development of a proof-of-concept software decision aid that aggregates space objects into a single, integrated space picture. Our decision aid,SituSpace, will be built from the bottom up to support the theater commander and his staff with a visual depiction of the space portion of the battlespace. It will employ intelligent agent technology to generate a three dimensional view of objects onorbit above a theater. This project will also use XML objects as the medium of information distribution and storage. We propose to focus our research and development activity on the visualization needs of the Army theater commander and his staff. Thereare multiple databases of objects in space (i.e., NORAD), as well as deep space tracking units, and we propose to aggregate their data into a composite visual picture of the space battlespace.This SBIR will culminate in an integrated SituSpace software package that will assist the theater commander and his staff in visualizing the upper battlespace arena and the disposition of friendly and unfriendly forces. Conceivably this application, givenan ASAT capability, could assist in the future space control activity. This will be a unique product. Many commercial applications, which require their own aggregated picture of objects on orbit, would benefit strongly from the SituSpace concept:commercia
