Pagination or Media Count:
The National Reconnaissance Office NRO is in the process of creating a Future Imagery Architecture FIA as a basis for acquiring the next generation of imaging satellite systems and their associated ground control and processing. At the same time, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA is advocating demonstrating a space radar surveillance system Starlite incorporating advanced and higher risk technologies with cost and performance attributes that could have future application to the FIA. The Directors of DARPA and NRO have asked that a Defense Science Board DSB Task Force be established to review the operational, technical, industrial and financial aspects of each of these initiatives and recommend a course of action for the Department.
