Slingshot Aerospace will develop a customized version of the company's artificial intelligence-based space situational awareness technology for testing at two U.S. Air Force facilities under a two-year, $6M contract, SpaceNews reported Sunday.

The service plans to test the Orbital Atlas software at Vandenberg AF Base in California and Schriever AF Base in Colorado.

Melanie Stricklan, co-founder and chief technology officer of Slingshot Aerospace, said the platform is designed to provide data on space objects orbiting Earth.

Orbital Atlas uses a predictive modeling engine with machine learning to help users anticipate events such as collision and trajectory of debris.

Slingshot said it will demonstrate the platform at Space Symposium's Orbit Lounge event and add a geospatial intelligence function to help operators on ground access relevant information.
