Two Maxar Technologies subsidiaries will work together to develop a space-based layer prototype concept designed to help the Missile Defense Agency detect and track missile threats.

SSL will leverage and combine its space systems expertise with Radiant Solutions’ experience in ground systems engineering to build the Space Sensor Layer, Maxar said Wednesday.

“We are honored to accelerate the innovation needed for next-generation concepts that support national and international security and a more resilient American space enterprise,” said Richard White, president of SSL’s government systems business.

Tony Frazier, president of Radiant Solutions, said the company and SSL will work on the missile defense concept to further build up national security and help intelligence and defense agencies address critical challenges.

SSL has been chosen to lead the development of the concept through the Advanced Technology International-managed Space Enterprise Consortium.
