Abstract:

The Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL has identified a need for professional technology support to develop space vehicle sensor technologies that are critical to future military Space Control counterspace defensive missions and architectures. The objectives of this task are to provide systems engineering, analytical and technical analysis and assessments, and program development and management support in support of AFRL Space Electronics and Protection branch of the Space Vehicles Directorate. The scope of this effort is to provide AFRL with an in-depth analysis, requirements definition, program planning, and experiment support for the Satellite Threat Warning and Attack Reporting STWAR program. These technology programs directly address needs highlighted in the Space Control mission area. This effort encompasses a full range of activities related to the STWAR technology program from helping to define the system-level requirements for focusing development activities and planned experiments, developing Concept of Operations CONOPs and future architectures, and providing quantitative analyses to support design, as well as technology development activities. This task requires working with many organizations within AFRL, the Air Force Space Command AFSPC, the United States Space Command USSPACECOM, and its other service components, and other military and national organizations such as Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA, the National Reconnaissance Organization NRO, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA.
