CHANTILLY, Va., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Governmental and commercial entities, both domestic and foreign, are increasingly populating space with satellites, rockets, space stations and other objects. As space vehicles and debris become more prevalent in the sphere around the earth, TASC’s Global Situational Awareness Toolkit – GSAT – offers adaptable analyses, as well as operations and planning environments, to collect and fuse real-time, dynamic information into a single, accessible and secure view of space.

“Our GSAT capability allows for continued assured operations in space,” says Robert M. Silsby, vice president of TASC’s Strategic Capabilities organization. “In the same way that the precursor to modern air traffic control systems provided for flight safety in the early days of airline traffic, GSAT is designed for traffic awareness in space.”

GSAT combines collision avoidance, orbit conjunction analysis, post-maneuver assessment, neighborhood watch, RF interference and sensor search and detection – all in one tool. Users can model, analyze and visualize advanced situational awareness in space, as well as on the ground, at sea and in the air. Automated checklists are used to provide efficient, repeatable, reliable, accurate and cost-effective solutions, analyses and processes.

“Watching over all of the man-made materials circling our planet is no small feat, especially when you consider that the number of players in space is growing,” says Silsby. “Although everyone monitors the location and direction of their own orbital objects fairly well, we need better ways to share information and prevent future space accidents.”

For a demonstration of TASC’s GSAT solution, visit the TASC Booth 505 at the National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs from April 8 to 11.
