The mission of the Advanced Sensors and Techniques group is to develop and demonstrate tactically-relevant space situational awareness (SSA) in support of space control. The group focuses on the techniques, operational concepts, and advanced sensor systems that are needed to obtain timely and predictive information about space objects. This work is enabled by hands-on access to an operational network of space surveillance sensor systems. The group operates the Lincoln Space Surveillance Complex (LSSC), comprising the Millstone radar, Haystack Ultra-wideband Satellite Imaging Radar (HUSIR), and the Haystack Auxiliary (HAX) radar. The group is also responsible for supporting the space mission at the Reagan Test Site (RTS) on Kwajalein via the Lexington Space Situational Awareness Center (LSSAC). The LSSAC serves as a central mission-support center and data-fusion node, with data feeds from the entire Space Surveillance Network and prototype sensor systems including the 3.5-meter Space Surveillance Telescope. These systems form a test range that is used to develop and demonstrate novel tactical SSA techniques such as optics-cued radar search, high-interest object monitoring, high-value asset neighborhood watch, and new launch custody.
