Abstract
The research objective of the proposed effort is to demonstrate and transition an autonomous, rapid determination of satellite features to be used for Threat Indication and Warning (TIN). The scope is to enhance and transition the advanced algorithms previously developed under AFRL/RV into operation in the Joint Space Operations Center (JSPOC) Mission System (JMS) through the JMS Advanced Research Collaboration and Application Development Environment (ARCADE) at AFRL/RV. The goal is for these algorithms to produce higher fidelity monitoring, change detection, and characterization of objects in Deep Space, particularly the geosynchronous (GEO) belt using unresolved photometric signature data. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of implementing characterization tools in ARCADE as proof of operational worthiness. Specifically, Phase I will demonstrate the GEO characterization tool, Photometry Analysis Software Tool Dayton (PAST-D) operating in the ARCADE environment in near real-time. Phase I will also include the development and testing of statistical algorithms for dynamic statistical assessment that detects changes for TIN. These modules will be merged with PAST-D to create a new tool, the Photometry-based Satellite Status Assessment System (PSSAS), to be demonstrated in ARCADE in Phase II that will derive TIN from the assessment of the evolution of fine photometric features.
