Satellite protection
The Air Force laid out $29 million recently to build space-based sensors that could detect threats or hazards and protect satellites in orbit. Known as the Self-Awareness Space Situations Awareness, SASSA will develop and demonstrate a hardware/software architecture using a suite of threat warning instruments located on a satellite. This will be accomplished by developing and demonstrating a payload that can monitor a space vehicle using threat warning instruments and can report hazards or threat indicators to ground operators.
