Ground-based and space-based sensors are currently inadequate to properly protect our national security spacecraft, mostly in Geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO). Launchspace completed a very well-received study for the Air Force where our proposed sensor constellation resolves capability gaps for space situational awareness in GEO:
1. The ability to track resident space objects (RSOs) as small as CubeSat size threats in GEO from our equatorial LEO constellation.
2. The ability to resolve the 3 types of solar blindness (solar glare, eclipse and spacecraft self-shadowing near the sun vector).
3. The ability to detect and track the dangerous GEO crossing objects as well as RSOs in geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO).
