A growing number of satellite system owners and operators need new capabilities to protect their assets and missions in space. To address this need, Lockheed Martin introduces iSpace – intelligent Space – which provides defense, civil, commercial, and international customers with sensor data processing, space domain awareness, command and control, and battle management capabilities for the space domain.
According to the company’s announcement on prneweswire.com, the iSpace software tasks, processes, and correlates data from a worldwide network of government, commercial, and scientific community sensors and command centers. After gleaning information from optical, radar, infrared, and radio sensors, iSpace automatically provides information to users about what is happening in real-time and recommends the best course of action.
Its advanced analytics and fusion capabilities enable proactive management of space events such as collisions, maneuvers, break-ups, launches, and co-orbital threats.
The iSpace architecture is net-centric, open, and scalable with an intuitive user display configurable to be rapidly integrated into many environments for modeling and simulation, experimentation, or operational use.
“Space is an important and valuable domain that has changed from a safe environment to one that is congested and threatened,” said Dr. Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin. “Through the predictive analytic capabilities provided by iSpace, the unknown becomes known, providing decision makers with the ability to quickly understand the operational picture and respond appropriately.”
