AGI introduces the Commercial Space Operations Center
The Commercial Space Operations Center (ComSpOC™) is a space situational awareness (SSA) facility that fuses satellite-tracking measurements from a continually growing global network of commercial sensors. The ComSpOC™ generates High Definition Ephemeris (HiDEph™) and other highly accurate SSA data products for resident space object (RSO) characterization. Since its announcement in March of 2014, the ComSpOC™ has established closed-loop tracking with sites and successfully tracked a recent space launch. The ComSpOC™ is now tracking 4,426 total space objects, 75% of all active geosynchronous (GEO) satellites and 100% of all active GEO satellites over the continental U.S. The ComSpOC™ is currently using more than 28 optical sensors and one radar site. An RF data processing test verified the ability of ComSpOC™ to do near real-time maneuver characterization and continuous custody for active GEOs. The SpaceBook®, a service that currently provides data including, status, orbit mission and owner information of all tracked objects, is now live. In the future, this will serve as a subscription-based portal for ComSpOC™ data such as health, status, event and trending information of all tracked objects.
