Abstract:

Imagine a futuristic tool, similar to the computer and holodeck used by Captains Kirk and Piccard aboard the Enterprise that could instantly provide holographic images of terrestrial areas of interest and the associated exoatmospheric environment for situation assessment and planning optimization. Although the original Star Trek series ran nearly 40 years ago, scientists are still unable to build some of the futuristic concepts first introduced in those early episodes. This article describes some of the thought processes behind and the progress to date for the Space and Missile Defense Commands SMDCs Single Integrated Space Picture SISP technology concept.
