Building a Resilient Space Architecture
Adversaries great and small understand the importance of U.S. space capabilities and continually seek to undermine them—through physical and digital means. To counter this evolving threat, future space systems must be both defensible and resilient.
Ensuring Faster Access to Space
Aerospace is revamping its traditional mission assurance and launch verification processes to keep up with the faster pace of space launch.
Creating a Path Through Contested Space
Innovative approaches to space traffic management are helping to reduce the risk of orbital collisions while reducing the burden of tracking space assets.
Rapid Prototyping to Disrupt Evolving Threats
Rapid prototypes and technology demonstrations are helping to move game-changing concepts from the research lab to the operational regime.
Artificial Intelligence Gets Ahead of the Threats
Intelligent systems that combine massive computational power with a dash of human intuition could soon revolutionize the manufacture and operation of sophisticated space systems.
Strengthening the Nation’s Response to Threats
Building on a long history of technical expertise and independent research, Aerospace is helping the government conceive and implement a comprehensive space enterprise for the next century.
