The Australian government has selected Lockheed Martin to provide a technology platform designed to help users gain situational awareness of space events.
Lockheed said Tuesday it will deploy the iSpace Mission System at the Australian Space Operations Center to collect data from government, commercial and science community sensors.
The system works to integrate surveillance data and offers a comprehensive space picture that can help government personnel examine launches, collisions, break-ups, overflight, re-entry or co-orbital threats.
“Australia is an important ally for the U.S. and we are pleased to support their expanded role within the space situational awareness domain,” said Rob Smith, vice president of Lockheed’s C4ISR business.
ISpace employs an open architecture and a user display built to integrate with simulation, modeling, experimentation and operational systems.
