The Defense Sophisticated Study Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded BAE Systems’ Speedy LabsTM analysis and improvement organization a $7 million contract for the Oversight autonomous space-primarily based target custody system.

Standard space intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) collection can be siloed, labor intensive, and unable to dynamically re-evaluate rapidly adequate to take benefit of new space systems. To address this, DARPA, the U.S. Space Force, and the Space Improvement Agency are building satellite constellations to enhance the tactical relevance of U.S. space systems.

Proliferated low earth orbit satellite constellations are drastically expanding on-orbit ISR capabilities. The DARPA Oversight system will concentrate on generating an autonomous method that maintains continuous “custody” of a significant quantity of assets across new, diversified constellations. Below the terms of the system, the technologies will be deployed to each tactical-edge satellites and ground stations.

“Rapidly advancing close to-peer adversary capabilities are driving a will need for added lengthy-variety tracking at elevated scale and timeliness,” stated Dr. John Grimes, director of Little Satellites at BAE Systems’ Speedy Labs. “To meet this requirement, our group incorporates technical experience in autonomy, space processing, ISR systems, tactical-edge computer software improvement, method integration and architectures, and mission concentrate.”

Perform on the system, which is portion of BAE Systems’ autonomous technologies portfolio, incorporates collaboration with subcontractors OmniTeq and AIMdyn, Inc.
