iSpace Helps Customers Address the Threatened Space Environment
growing number of satellite system owners and operators need new
capabilities to protect their assets and missions in space. To address
this need, Lockheed Martin has introduced iSpace – intelligent Space -
which provide defense, civil, commercial, and international customers
with sensor data processing, space domain awareness, command and
control, and battle management capabilities for the space domain.
"Space is an important and valuable domain that has changed from a safe
environment to one that is congested and threatened," said Dr. Rob
Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin. "Through the
predictive analytic capabilities provided by iSpace, the unknown becomes
known, providing decision makers with the ability to quickly understand
the operational picture and respond appropriately."
iSpace software tasks, processes, and correlates data from a worldwide
network of government, commercial, and scientific community sensors and
command centers. After gleaning information from optical, radar,
infrared, and radio sensors, iSpace automatically provides information
to users about what is happening in real-time and recommends the best
course of action.
Its advanced analytics and fusion capabilities enable proactive
management of space events such as collisions, maneuvers, break-ups,
launches, and co-orbital threats. The iSpace architecture is
net-centric, open, and scalable with an intuitive user display
configurable to be rapidly integrated in many environments for modeling
and simulation, experimentation, or operational use.
In developing iSpace, Lockheed Martin leveraged decades of space, air,
maritime, and missile defense expertise obtained from multiple U.S.
government programs such as Space Fence, Theatre Battle Management Core
Systems, and Command, Control, Battle Management & Communications.
