Situated at Colorado Springs, Colo., the Pulsar Guardian laboratory houses monitors and computer systems and can accommodate approximately 50 people.
According to Kurt Nelson, a technical adviser at Pulsar Guardian, the company intends to integrate software tools that will enable the evaluation and visualization of space-based scenarios. In addition, the laboratory will expand to include artificial intelligence, machine learning and augmented reality capabilities.
“Most of the problems we are trying to solve are software-related, and we emulate the hardware to see how the software and hardware work together in a more realistic environment,” added Nelson.
Christine Jeseritz, a Lockheed program manager, explained the reasoning behind allowing multiple clients to use the laboratory.
“We recognize that the problems our customers have to solve are enormous, and we can’t solve every problem ourselves. No one company has the technology to solve every problem, but if we knit those technologies together, we can solve those problems,” she said.
