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.
