U.S. creates digital models of new missile warning sensors for satellites

14

The US Space Force is creating digital models of new infrared missile warning sensors for its next constellation of satellites. They selected two companies for this task.


This is reported by the American magazine C4ISRNET.

Contracts to develop a missile tracking system that will assess whether infrared sensors for next-generation satellites can effectively detect and track ballistic missiles have been awarded to Raytheon Technologies and Millennium Space Systems.

The US Space Force is building the next generation OPIR missile attack warning system to replace the current space-based infrared system. It is designed to detect and track potential ballistic missile strikes 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The initial constellation includes five satellites, three of which will be in geosynchronous orbit, and two more will provide coverage of the Earth's polar regions. The first geosynchronous satellite will be ready in 2025. It is expected to launch in 2026.

Earlier in May, the US Space Force announced that it intends to become the world's first fully digital service.

    ... The Yankees have gotten drunk / collected / lured away serious scientific potential !!!
    So sho all this is very serious!

      create a model of a model that will die for the Fourth American Reich only after 2025, but at least seven times a day) is very ambitious))

        The main thing is that they, all the same, do not stand still !!! They are looking, looking for options .... they can and find, if they put themselves together in a bunch.

    Oh lord .. In the news, it's not the creation of the product, but the creation model products. Saw Shura Saw.

      This is just a clumsy translation. We are talking about new infrared sensors with
      built-in digital processing of results.

        What's the point? With a nuclear armageddon, it is clear that missiles are flying))))

          Tracked launches of any missiles, not just ICBMs.
          And not only from Russia.
          And non-nuclear too. Tactical, winged.

            Amers that do not have their own ZGRLS? ))))

              The only American OGRLS currently in operation is designed to track illegal drug traffickers in the Caribbean. You are confusing over-horizon stations with over-the-horizon multi-hop stations.

        How do I know what this translation is? And all the more clumsy. There is no link to the original and there is no mention of someone else's authorship, so we believe that this is an author's article.

        And before they drove the "raw" signal to the ground? And whence then false positives (on the ground you can see with your eyes)?

    -they intend to become the world's first FULLY digital service.
    When you "digitize" ALL your employees, then we'll see.

    Sensors are not a problem, the main thing is to correctly identify what the satellite has detected, otherwise the natural anomaly will be mistaken for the launch of a combat missile, and then it will not matter that the third world war began because of a small joint. ...

    plus.
    zadolbali mudkoyazhnye type "sands" - carry nonsense in their bird newspeak.
    I understand "digital terrain model," digital processing of incoming data ", and" the united states create for satellites digital models of new sensors - the semantics are clear, but the ontology is slipping away)))
    Well, we created a digital model of the sensor, what next - to insert it into a digital model of a satellite to register a digital launch of missiles?
