Abstract:

The Air Force Maui Optical and Supercomputing Site AMOS is located on top of Haleakala on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The site, which is owned and operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL, has three large meter-class optical telescopes that were designed to identify and track ballistic missile tests and orbiting human-made objects. Together, these telescopes provide the Air Force with a unique capability to support space situational awareness SSA missions in the Pacific region.
