Missile Warning and Defense

Features and Benefits

  • End-to-end capabilities that support responsive space missions, including, bus, payload, engineering design, mission planning, integration, testing, launch, operations and deliverable intelligence
  • Secure and scalable ground infrastructure provides command and control of responsive space constellations as well as data processing
  • Mission-defining sensor technology provides critical missile detection with precision infrared imaging technology that can be produced at volume
  • Production capabilities built upon years of space mission experience but with the commercial speed of a nontraditional vendor
  • Experience launching reconfigurable, multi-mission, software-defined payloads at scale
  • Record of cost-effectively meeting right-sized performance requirements and balance lifecycle costs across an entire smallsat constellation architecture
  • Years of delivering essential payloads in multiple orbits to U.S. Department of Defense

Multi-Layered, Multi-Domain Solutions

In an increasingly contested space environment, a multi-layered approach can significantly reduce risk along the threat-elimination chain.
