Abstract:

US space capabilities benefit the economy, national security, international relationships, scientific discovery, and our quality of life. Realizing these space responsibilities is challenging not only because the space domain is increasingly congested, contested, and competitive but is further complicated by the legacy space situational awareness SSA systems approaching end of life and inability to provide the breadth of SSA and command and control C2 of space forces in this challenging domain. JMS will provide the capabilities to effectively employ space forces in this challenging domain. Requirements for JMS were developed based on regular, on-going engagement with the warfighter. The use of DoD Architecture Framework DoDAF products facilitated requirements scoping and understanding and transferred directly to defining and documenting the requirements in the approved Capability Development Document CDD. As part of the risk reduction efforts, the Electronic System Center ESC JMS System Program Office SPO fielded JMS Capability Package CP 0 which includes an initial service oriented architecture SOA and user defined operational picture UDOP along with force status, sensor management, and analysis tools. Development efforts are planned to leverage and integrate prototypes and other research projects from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Air Force Research Laboratories, Space Innovation and Development Center, and MITLincoln Laboratories. JMS provides a number of benefits to the space community a reduction in operational transaction time to accomplish key activities and processes ability to process the increased volume of metric observations from new sensors e.g., SBSS, SST, Space Fence, as well as owneroperator ephemerides thus enhancing the high accuracy near-real-time catalog, and greater automation of SSA data sharing supporting collaboration with government, civil, commercial, and foreign entities.
