The California-based company EpiSci was chosen by the US Space Development Agency to develop cutting-edge hypersonic missile detection software, leveraging the power of AI to analyze extensive data from low Earth orbit satellites.

This new comprehensive global warning system for monitoring hypersonic and ballistic missile threats improves threat detection accuracy and accelerates the response time to emerging threats. EpiSci reportedly aims to revolutionize the use of AI technology in national defense, their software is meant to identify hypersonic threats accurately by analyzing data from missile-tracking satellites, bringing unprecedented accuracy to identifying these types of threats.

“At Mach 10, a hypersonic weapon can reach the US homeland in less than an hour. As emerging threats continue to push the bounds of flight speeds, DoD is increasing demands to maintain superior counter technologies, including the ability to detect, track, and classify hypersonic targets for its early warning defense systems,” explained EpiSci in a statement.

This innovation comes from a partnership between EpiSci and Raytheon Technologies which provides its missile defense simulations and data analysis expertise, marking the beginning of a new era in missile defense. This collaboration leverages the power of satellite technology, artificial intelligence, and expert analysis, all to create a strong defense mechanism capable of intercepting all missiles.

According to Interesting Engineering, the SDA established a network of up to 100 missile-tracking satellites in LEO, which is designed to provide a global shield against advanced missile threats. This revolutionary step forward marks a significant step in the strengthening of global defense systems, using satellite technology, AI, and expert analytics to detect and neutralize hypersonic missile threats.
