  • TOPIC NUMBER: AF112-069
  • TOPIC TITLE: Autonomous On-Board Control of Satellites for Space Superiority
  • TECHNICAL PROJECT OFFICE: AFRL Space Vehicles Directorate
  • SPONSORING ORGANIZATION: Space and Missile Systems Center

A small business in Maryland is helping the Air Force overcome barriers in satellite technology to gain the advantage in space. With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program, Orbit Logic Inc. developed software that shows promise to enable a satellite to consistently make its own decisions when ground contact is not possible. This added layer of protection – known as autonomy – is critical as an increasing number of satellites are tied to our national interests and can cost hundreds of millions of dollars each to launch into orbit.
